Police Tase Man Twice After He Listened to Music “Too Loud”; Falsey Imprison Him

fc tase

When Jeremiah Kendrick boarded a Pennsylvania bus in October 2013, he was hoping it would be a smooth ride to work.

Unfortunately, that was not to be.

The 21-year-old was sitting down, minding his own business and had his ear buds on when the bus driver yelled at him to turn down his music.




He had not realized that Kendrick was wearing buds.

However, when he clarified this to the driver saying that it could not have been his music the man got upset and called the police.

Upper Moreland cops Sergeant Peter Ruddle and Officer Matthew Snyder responded to the call.

Kendrick says they cursed and shouted at him as soon as they arrived; they also tased him unnecessarily, he says.


The officers dragged him outside and while he was lying on the ground, trying to protect his head and face from being attacked, in the parking lot of a Willow Grove convenience store – the cops used the taser on him twice.

Criminal charges, including resisting arrest, were then pressed and he was placed under custody.

Two months ago the Montgomery County prosecutors decided to drop the allegations against Kendrick, after defense showed a cell phone video of what happened inside the bus as evidence of his innocence.

It was taken when he asked for help from his fellow passengers and one of them decided to capture on his phone how he was being treated by the officers.

Apparently, what was contained in the footage was in stark contrast with the testimony delivered by Ruddle and Snyder.

    Wow. Its a constannt battle for your constitutional rights, and prosecutors seldom charge the criminal cops. While they will say that a drunk driver caught once has commited the crime of DUI 80 times for the one time hes caught, when it comes to cops abusing our rights, they most often claim its a one time aberation when they find cops commiting criminal conduct.
