WATCH: Cincinnati Cops May Have Violated Taser Policy

Two Cincinnati officers used “horrible judgment” and may have violated department policy when they used their Tasers in an early August scuffle.

The incident prompted an extraordinary intervention by the Hamilton County prosecutor in an external city investigation into the use of force and a major showdown between City Manager Harry Black and police union President Dan Hils.

Two experts a professor and an expert witness/consultant reviewed the footage both said that neither the use of force nor the subsequent controversy had to happen.

They added that the officers clearly did not follow the city police policy of de-escalation when confronting two young men in their mother’s living room.

Officers never stated they were arresting the two men and instead pulled their Tasers and eventually used them a potential violation of CPD’s official use of force policy.
