“Officer Manuel Ramos was charged with one count of second-degree murder and one count of involuntary manslaughter; Corporal Jay Cicinelli was charged with one count of involuntary manslaughter and one count of excessive force.”
Well, at least those two have been punished somewhat. This is such a disgrace though, if you ever think you need to use that much force in a situation like that then you are way to weak and cowardly to be a police officer. I don’t ever see a reason to hit someone pinned to the ground, unarmed. The taser has also become so over-relied on, seriously, two people can wrestle one guy who is not resisting. If you’re a cop, don’t be so afraid of getting hit a little that you need to preemptively use your baton or taser. This is disgusting, none of those cops should still be working.
