SHTFplan Editor’s note: Just yesterday we showed how one man stood up for his Constitutional rights by refusing to show identification or pull over for further interrogation while stopped at a DHS checkpoint. He was successful in exercising his rights under the Fourth Amendment. Things didn’t work out the same way for Zikomo Peurifoy.
This report was originally published by Paul Joseph Watson at Infowars.com.
A Florida man was repeatedly tased by police officers and arrested for refusing to identify himself, but instead of apologizing, the Casselberry Police Department insisted it would use footage of the incident for training purposes.
The video begins with police accusing Zikomo Peurifoy of jaywalking before they demand to see his identification.
The officer is asked by Peurifoy what statute requires that he show his ID, to which he responds, “Give me your ID or you’re going to go to jail.”
When Peurifoy refuses, two officers grab him while the man warns he will press charges for assault because he has committed no crime. Requests for a supervisor to be called are ignored.
After cops attempt to handcuff Peurifoy, he resists before a taser is used repeatedly while Peurifoy yells, “You are assaulting me.”
Peurifoy still manages to escape the clutches of police before he is repeatedly tased again before he finally falls to the ground and is arrested.
Far from apologizing for the incident, which appears to clearly show cops over-reacting, the Casselberry Police Department defended the actions of police and told WFTV, “That their officers followed policy so well that they’re going to use the video for training.”
