Miami Teen Tasered to Death by Police for Writing Graffiti

Israel-HernandezMiami teen Israel Hernandez died after being chased by police & shot in the chest with a taser for scribbling graffiti on an abandoned McDonald’s wall. A kid tased to death for writing graffiti? And the officers laughed their ass off while the child was in distress. WTFF?!! So writing graffiti is now a death sentence?  Miami Police need to be held accountable for this ish. And they didn’t even mention the tasing in their initial report. Stop the open season  killing and brutalizing of our young black and brown boys!

(The A police officer involved in the fatal tasering of a Florida teenager has reportedly been placed on administrative leave, pending the result of an internal investigation. Jorge Mercado was one of several officers involved in the arrest of Israel Hernandez, an 18-year-old graffiti artist. Hernandez died after being hit with a taser in the early hours of Tuesday morning. The cause of death has yet to be determined. Anonymous law enforcement sources told the Miami Herald that Mercado, a 13-year veteran of Miami Beach police, was put on paid leave on Thursday. Mercado was identified in reports as the officer who fired the taser at Hernandez, striking him in the chest. Miami Beach police did not immediately respond to the Guardian’s requests for information, but the department’s operating procedure guidelines state that an officer involved in a “deadly force incident, that results in great bodily harm or death shall be relieved of duty for a minimum of 72 hours”.

Miami Police are out of control with their history of using excessive, or lethal force.

Raymond Herisse was shot and killed by police during a hip-hop festival in Miami Beach in 2011. Police officers fired 116 shots at Raymond Herisse’s vehicle and injured four innocent bystanders.

    A lot of these police officers use PEDs like steroids, human growth hormones (HGH) and testosterone.

    That’s the reason that they are overly aggressive.

  3. Grown ass policemen laughing at the tasing of a child. Barbaric animals!

      Petition signed. If I were their lawyer, I’d file the wrongful death suit by Monday afternoon. Put the pressure on them as fast as possible. The “investigation” will be the same old shit.

      The police will not police themselves in any way shape or form and we all know that.

      Let ’em laugh……..sue the cop, his partner, the dept, the city…….sue them all.

  4. The officers involved were on thrill trip and wanted to see the reaction from the kid being tased. They did & laughed about it! Now the child is dead! Mofos!

  5. Miami Police, don’t even go there with the “he was coming towards me” bs lie. You didn’t even mention the tasing until a day later. So shut the fuck up with your lies.
