And yes victim blaming. This guy did nothing wrong but you keep throwing up question after question even after his story was corroborated by a witness. (Reason for charges being dropped).
And did it ever occur to you that maybe some racist citizen caused the ruckus by calling the cops in the first place? And the cops were just responding to a call about a disruptive person refusing to leave, hence their aggression?
If you were sitting in front of a bank, and I called the cops saying "Some white (or whatever you are) guy is in front of the bank wearing a jersey with 'Taint' on the back, and I think I saw a gun", do you think they'd be gentle and peaceful picking you up?
It's pretty likely that the ruckus was caused by (a) whoever called it in (have we heard the call?), (b) a guy with a chip on his shoulder, who knows his rights, and is willing to get tased to make a point, and (c) taser-happy cops who were told that some guy was trespassing and refusing to leave.
