Raw Video: Police Tase Totally Peaceful Men on Their Own Property
NEW SCOTLAND — Raw video footage posted Facebook shows a young man pulling into the driveway of his own home.
He had four of his friends in the car with him.
A cop had been following the young men, and flashed his lights at them as they pulled onto the property.
Christopher Dimmitt, 22, was driving the vehicle.
He exited his vehicle to go inside his home, but that’s when the cop told him to “get back in the car?”
Christopher became confused as to why he was pulled over and being yelled at to get inside of his car.
He explained to the officer that he hadn’t done anything wrong and that he was at his own home.
That is when Albany County Sheriff’s Deputy Philip Milano began threatening to shoot Christopher with a Taser gun.
Christopher’s friend also exited the vehicle and had his hands raised completely over his head to show the officer that they intended no harm.
Despite being completely peaceful and on their own property, Milano and other cops who arrived at the scene began shooting the young men with Taser guns.
The men can be heard screaming on the video.
The Albany County Sheriff’s Office has conducted an “investigation” into the matter and determined that the Tasing was “within agency standards and guidelines.”
