No CAPTAIN BATMAN is not part of a corrupt police force that wants taser people. CAPTAIN BATMAN is not a tool of the government like you.

I think they should be arrested for assult. They assaulted this man. There was no reason for force to be used. It's pigs like this who give cops the sore eye. Their job is to protect and serve. 1.) who were they protecting and 2.) who and what were they serving?

I think it's safe to assume it was EPD being that the incident took place in Evansville. You don't need a PhD to figure that one out.

He was stopped for running a stop sign. Not for hand gestures. Totally legal

You are an idiot if you believe that.

They came up with that excuse after the fact. They basically admit it in the incident report. They pulled him over only after he waved. In what they called an "aggregated manor". Which is also clearly BS given his occupation.

I'm not saying what they did was technically illegal, but it sure as hell was shady.

Do you get cuffed in a ditch for running a stop sign on a bike??

Doesn't matter. Nothing will come of this incident. The police will maybe at most get a suspension with pay. So if you feel they need a vacation that's fine. There are a few stand up officers in Evansville. Other than that, they are kids that got bullied or the ones the killed animals. These people get their rocks off on authority.

No you get cuffed for pulling your fist back on an officer and not listening when they tell you to get off the phone.

Indiana generally is the most boring place on Earth, so people have to do weird to make it livable, especially Black males, since their 6% of the population genetic disposition to serial murder is seen in them being 50% of serial murderers (not to mention Africa.) That leaves about 44% of the population representing the other 50% of serial murderers, but that's not right either, because most of them are gay. Indiana bureaucracies have people measuring the distance between blades of grass. It's understandable some firefighter, when not setting fires to put out, would flip off some militarized, corn fed giants with not enough blood flow to their brains. Thanks Leftists, for giving lots of free money to communities to build police bunkers. Everyone in Indiana is like that... not enough blood flow to their brains.

Everyone seems to have such relevant comments on the topic, I thought I'd help. White women, children and men are being attacked daily across America in an onslaught of hate crimes by Blacks, literally hidden by the media. But, dumbasses in the media and here are concerned about some jerk Black man not knowing how to approach police officers, and in true form display an anti-authoritarian bias common to Leftist pansies.
