Another example of the police state we are becoming if we don’t turn it around. Notes from You Tube.
George Madison Jr., an African American firefighter and youth pastor in Evansville, Indiana was threatened with a taser by police when he committed no crime.
Madison says that he was riding his bike when he saw a police car approaching the same intersection.
Through his work on the local fire department, he is familiar with a number of the police officers in Evansville and he thought he recognized one of the men in the car so he waved.
That is not how the police interpreted it, however, as they claim that they thought he was flicking them off.
The officers stopped Madison, and, according to Madison, they were getting confrontational.
He then took out his phone and went to call the police chief, Billy Bolin, who he is friends with. The officers told him to hang up the phone and get on the ground.
When he hesitated before listening to their order, The Courier Press reports that the officer took out his taser.
