End the Lie
Jefferson Parish, Louisiana Sheriff Deputies turned on Sean Warren
last week simply for recording the questionable treatment meted out to
his brother, Casey Warren. The police beat him, tased him, handcuffed him and smashed his cell phone after treating his brother in a nearly identical manner.
Unfortunately this is far from an isolated incident given that police across the country have been guilty of similar attempts to destroy evidence. Similarly, police have brutally beaten people simply for legally filming an arrest from the seeming safety of their own property.
Despite the phone being thrown to the ground after Sean Warren was
sucker punched by the deputies, Warren managed to recover the video
after taking his phone to a repair shop.
As Carlos Miller rightly points out, the recovered video (embedded
below) is quite dark and grainy, thus making it quite difficult to make
out exactly what is going on. However, “it does show deputies trying to
shove Casey Warren into the back of a patrol car.”
