Is it a public sidewalk? Or one built by HOAs or whoever?
In anycase, the guy did nothing to warrant arrest, much less getting tazed. It’s a cop deciding to escalate the situation, robotically shout orders instead of listening to a single word the guy has to say, and deciding to arrest Words the moment Words complains, even a little.
This cop is a pig, whether or not Words was parked illegally, and needs to go to jail for his piggish insolence. Too bad he’ll most likely get to enjoy either a pension from the town where this happened plus a salary working as a pig somewhere else, or get to stay on the force without charges, or get early retirement with full benefits.
In anycase this pig will almost certainly not be punished for tasing a guy who wasn’t threatening him and parked incorrectly.
So, just generally, FUCK THA POLICE.
