.Cops After Death Of Gregory Towns Jr. While In Custody
ATLANTA (AP) -- The family of a man who died after Atlanta-area police used stun guns on him has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the former officers and the city, the family's lawyer said.
The lawsuit, which was filed in Fulton County Superior Court, says East Point police officers used their stun guns as many as 13 times on Gregory Towns Jr. while he was handcuffed. The lawsuit claims former police sergeant Marcus Eberhart and former corporal Howard Weems used excessive force in the April 11 incident.
"It's just heinous," attorney Chris Stewart told The Associated Press in a phone interview Thursday. "This isn't one of those cases where he punched an officer and they had to Taser him to calm him down."
The lawsuit comes amid increased attention on police use of force in the wake of the fatal shooting in of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Following that shooting, local police in Ferguson donned riot gear and fired tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters who refused to disperse and, at times, broke into nearby businesses.
While many police officers use their authority appropriately, there are some who view any act of disobedience as a call for extreme action, Stewart said.
"In our case, it wasn't about color, obviously, because the officers were black," Stewart said. "It was about power. He didn't walk when they said walk. He didn't stand when they said stand. And he didn't move fast enough when they said move."

This show will focus on the cold blooded killing of Walter L. Scott by former Charleston (SC) Patrolman Michael T. Slager, 33.
Scott, a 50-year old Coast Guard veteran and father of four, died Saturday after Slager shot him in the back.
Five of the eight bullets hit Scott. Four of those struck his back. One hit an ear.
The footage filmed by a bystander shows the end of the confrontation between Scott and Slager after Scott ran from a traffic stop. The video evidence contradictis an account Slager gave earlier this week through his former attorney.

"To Protect & Serve?"
While most encounters with police do not escalate into anything bad the truth is, even regular, non-abusive encounters with police can end badly for an average person… if that person doesn’t know his rights.
Police officers are allowed to lie, trick and intimidate in order to find a pretext for writing tickets, performing searches and making arrests. But a citizen who is well-informed of his constitutional rights has a much better chance of getting through the ordeal unscathed.
