July 22, 2008

Baron Pikes, 21, was Tasered nine times by a police officer in January in Winnfield, Louisiana.

What happened in the 39 minutes in between - during which Pikes was handcuffed by local police and shocked nine times with a Taser, while reportedly pleading for mercy - is now spawning fears of a political coverup in this backwoods Louisiana lumber town infamous for backroom dealings.

This isn't uncommon...

...I had a friend who was in a similar incident...As he told me 2 weeks before he died...Sometime in January this year, he was pulled over re: a broken head or tail light (was in a car accident last year)...black female cop asks for license, etc, and heads back to the car to run it, did so and was about to let him go..white male cop pulls over, and demands from the passenger side that the Brother get out of the car..Brother says no, there's no reason, and locks the doors...white male cop reaches in window to open the door, Brother rolls window up on his arm (I know, funny right?)...but, white male cop now deems this as abusing a police officer, and calls for backup...meanwhile, Brother calls his parents to the scene, and refuses to leave the car until they get there...parents arrive, talk the Brother into exiting the vehicle..white male cop still angry, tases the Brother (in front of his parents) after he agrees to be taken to the station...Brother is arrested, released, goes home...

Fast forward to March 16th...Brother complains of chest pains while playing basketball (was working on his health, had stopped drinking, smoking in Sept. last year) and goes home...Brother returned to the essence in his driveway of heart failure...at 22 years old..No one saw the relation between the 2 events except me, maybe I'm right, maybe I'm wrong...

This Brother though was a target of local police, most likely due to past actions, that he cleaned up completely because he was almost done with school (whould have obtained his assoc. degree in May)...Just seems real odd to me that he was in such good health before this incident...

The story posted brought back those memories, and the synchronicity was on place, re: the number 22...Also, how small towns like these, no charges were filed regarding the tasing, especially of someone who was no longer a threat...I'm having a deja vu as I type this...
