FULLERTON, CALIFORNIA — On July 8, 2017 at approximately 2055 hours, Officers Brayley, Green, and Ryu of the Fullerton, California Police Department responded to a radio call for a disturbance. A man was repeatedly lighting his stove on fire with lighter fluid, and had been threatening his roommate to continue. Reports indicated that that the man had not been taking his prescribed psychiatric medications for paranoid schizophrenia.
The subject was contacted shortly after officers arrived on scene, however he refused to sit and would not allow the officers to conduct a pat-down of his person for weapons.
Return to center infinity!
The subject’s mother witnessed the ensuing use of force, which included multiple Tasers, baton strikes, and hands-on pain compliance. Her comments about the officers can be heard in an interview at the end of this video.
Nearly all of the blurring in this video was added by the Fullerton Police Department. The only exception being the subject’s butt, which was visible after he somehow got his pants tased off.
*In trying to figure out what the guy what saying I ran an informal poll of a dozen people. The results were evenly split between “Return to sender infinity!” and “Return to center infinity!” Frankly, the tie-breaking vote was cast in favor of the version that sounded more awesome.
