What corporate media got wrong about this brutal arrest caught on bodycam

While PAR conducted two separate investigations into the case, the brutal arrest and tasering of cab driver Lufti Saalim at a Toledo, Ohio, Walmart went unreported by local news for over a year after the incident. In their reporting, moreover, these local corporate media outposts did not receive comments from law enforcement or the victim of police brutality. This superficial coverage of a case involving excessive force by police highlights larger problems with corporate media’s for-profit model and its ability to interrogate or challenge the official (and well-funded) law enforcement narratives. In this installment of PAR, journalists Taya Graham and Stephen Janis look at what gets “lost in translation” when corporate media covers police brutality and overreach.

  1. This is WAY BEYOND ridiculous!! The cop asked for his license, gave him less than 5 seconds to respond!! Then pulls his tazer!! The man was obviously scared, which the cop intended, then proceeds to taze him! Then.. continues to taze him!! Even though he did nothing wrong! Then to top it off, the mainstream media didn't even cover the story correctly!

  2. The thing that I find most obvious is that all of this happened over what was perceived to be a parking violation. Last time I heard a parking violation was a ticket, not 50,000 volts and a violent arrest.

  3. It always amazes me how cops get bent when the taser misfires and they then just hold the trigger down who in thier right mind isn’t going to try get away from the taser.

  4. In these cases, citizens need to bombard the police stations these bad cops work out of with phone calls, letters, and e-mails. You also have to give the video footage to the Attorney General's Office (federal and state), the Inspector General's Office (federal and state), the local ACLU office, NAACP, and Black Lives Matter chapter (in some cases), and anti-police terrorist organizations on YouTube, Facebook, and the Internet. In other words, NETWORK. The more police misconduct goes viral,,, the better. Corrupt cops, D.A.s, and police unions don't want the Spotlight of Truth shining on them!!! WATCH YouTube videos of First Amendment Auditors OR Civil Rights Auditors: News Now Community, Amagansett Press, James Madison Audits, James Freeman, Rights Crispy, Rogue Nation, Wolfy Gladly, Big Nick South Florida Accountability, Accountability for All, Bay Area Transparency, and MORE. GOAL: Stop police abuse and misconduct!
