Police Taser High School Student: Marijuana Incident

Suffolk County, NY — If there is one thing that will ensure your assault, kidnapping, severe injury, and/or death in New York — it’s cops who think you might be in possession of a plant. A dramatic video from Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School in Suffolk County this week provides a perfect example of this claim.

According to Suffolk Police Assistant Deputy Commissioner Justin Meyers, officers were responding to reports of an alleged fight at the high school. However, when they arrived there was no fight — but they did claim to smell a 16-year-old boy smoking marijuana.

To ‘protect’ the 16-year-old boy from the dangers of alleged marijuana use, officers moved in to kidnap him and lock him in a cage. In the video, the teen, who obviously does not want to be kidnapped and caged, is seen pulling away from his captors. However, because his kidnappers claim the legal authority to kidnap and cage people for possessing a plant, this ‘pulling away’ is then defined as a crime.

As the officer attempts to place handcuffs on the boy, he slips away and runs outside. Because this slipping away is also defined as a crime by the kidnappers, they claim the legal authority to deploy a 50,000 volt skin piercing less than lethal weapon into his back. At this point, the boy falls directly onto the concrete.

Luckily the child was not severely injured from the fall.

During the video, an unidentified man tells the person filming to put his phone away. However, Senior John Collado, the student filming, knew his rights and refused.
