Taser-Torture Update: Andrew Torres (Greenville SC)

Andrew Torres, 39, was killed by taser-happy police officers in Greenville SC earlier this week. We now know the name of the 3 officers that performed the extra-judicial electrocution: Officer Kevin Hill, Officer Eric Koepke and Officer Dale Dirton. [SOURCE]

We also have new video from the family. They lay out a story that appears to be very bad for the Greenville police department. The family sought assistance from the police. The police arrived with an agenda of violence that resulted in death.





Is there any justification for this taser-related death?

" The police arrived with an agenda of violence that resulted in death."

So the officers went on the call with the intent of hurting this man is what you are suggesting.

I think that you have lost the ability to be objective, brother.

Gunfighter - You could be right. In this case, I based my comment on what the family said about the demeanor of the officers that entered the residence and took very little time to assess the situation before drawing weapons and shooting the poor guy...
