BRUTAL QUESTIONS addresses the fifth incident of the Eugene Police using the department's newly-adopted Taser gun. Was it police brutality as at least ten witnesses stated? Or is it the police giving the more truthful accounting in claiming the multiple shocks were required to force compliance from a dangerous protestor? Now that the case has caused public outcry and formally filed charges of police brutality, a deputy auditor has been assigned. And many people are waiting for her findings. Consider this a necessary follow-up to Tazing Eugene, which was my video on the very first use of Tasers by police in this same city. In that case, wherein a homeless man was shocked, there was hardly a ripple and the local papers did not report on any witnesses who contradicted the police's report (as this trumpet-blower did). This time, however, it's a student who was left writhing in pain, and this time everyone is watching. The latest video by Oregon's Official MTV Choose or Lose Street Team 08 Citizen Journalist, Nezua. Clicking the picture above will take you to the video page.
