VIDEO: Stun Gun Used on Brick-Throwing Man

KSAL StaffAugust 19, 2015

Authorities say a stun gun was used on a man after he threw bricks at a south-central Kansas law enforcement building and expressed outrage about police shootings.

Surveillance cameras at the Law Enforcement Center in Newton captured police officers deploying a Taser on the man Tuesday afternoon.

The Newton Police Department said in a Facebook post Tuesday evening that the man at one point “indicated he was tired of seeing news reports of police officers shooting people and decided today he would take a stand.” The man can be heard on the video repeatedly saying, “Shoot me.”

The department says that it appears that the man is from another state and was passing through the community.
