In Victoria, Texas a police officer was just recorded beating and tasering a 76-year-old man. The cop was then called a “Goddamned Nazi Stormtrooper” by a co-worker of the man who witnessed this assault. These sound like pretty harsh words until you find out that the officer was harassing the man for an expired inspection sticker, even though the vehicle had dealer tags which makes it completely exempt from such stickers.

The 23-year-old cop was placed on administrative leave on Friday after beating and tasering Pete Vasquez.

Vasquez was driving a work-owned dealer vehicle on Thursday when Officer Nathanial Robinson started harassing him. When Vasquez explained the exemption to the cop, Robinson became enraged.

The dashcam video shows it all. Robinson slams Vasquez onto the hood of the patrol car before forcing him to the ground, then shocking him twice while on the ground.

“He just acted like a pit bull, and that was it,” Vasquez said. “For a while, I thought he was going to pull his gun and shoot me.”

Chief J.J. Craig said that he took this matter very seriously and offered a personal apology to Vasquez, but he stopped short of disciplining the rogue officer.

“Public trust is extremely important to us,” Craig said, hoping that his apology will keep his department from getting sued.

“Sometimes that means you have to take a real hard look at some of the actions that occur within the department,” he continued.

“You want to make sure you give the right kind of person a badge and a gun,” he finally added.

Larry Urich, a co-worker of Vasqueze at the car lot, told local Victoria Advocate reporters that the officer should be fired and prosecuted for assault.

“I told the officer, ‘What in the hell are you doing?’ This gentleman is 76 years old,” Urich explained. “The cop told me to stand back, but I didn’t shut up. I told him he was a goddamned Nazi Stormtrooper.”

  1. under the circumstances I don’t blame the elderly gentleman from calling the cop what he appears to be.
    I hope the man didn’t sustain any physical damages from this incident.
    My nearly 84 year old disabled Father sustained physical damages at the hands of two huge gorilla sized cops in Fort Payne,Alabama.

  2. America has a serious, institutionalized, systemic law enforcement problem. Over the last 4 decades, our law enforcement has become increasingly militarized, putting every citizen at risk of being shot and killed for nothing more than reaching for their wallet, as instructed, or less. This may increase safety for police officers (debatable, in the long run), but at the expense of making American citizens far less safe, which is the exact opposite of the goals of law enforcement. We need to create systems that bring back accountability within every level of the justice system.
    Nationally, we need to:
    1. Create citizen oversight committees with powers of subpoena and prosecutorial discretion for every law enforcement agency in the country.
    2. Require law enforcement officers to be personally insured to protect taxpayers from lawsuits. Too risky for insurance? No insurance, no badge.
    3. Require every law enforcement officer to wear a camera. No camera, no gun. No exceptions.
    4. Require yearly psyche tests and lie detector tests to screen out bad apples.
    5. Require monthly drug and steroid tests.
    6. All police agencies must keep a database of every officer-caused civilian injury, shooting or killing, and that data must be periodically transmitted to a third-party, non-biased national database.
    7. Any officer involved in a shooting must be alcohol and drug tested immediately.
    8. Officers should be made aware of studies on abuse of power, such as the Stanford Prison Experiment and the Milgram experiment on obedience to authority figures.
    9. Create a special number to report police brutality.
    10. Create national database of bad cops, so they don’t just get hired elsewhere.
    11. Reverse militarization of police forces. Take away military “toys”, weapons, APC’s, uniforms, etc. Keep SWAT/military weapons and equipment under lock and key only to be used in genuine emergencies.
    12. End drug prohibition/war on drugs. Use harm reduction strategies.
    13. End private prison industry.
    14. Create a national organization dedicated to these ideals.

  3. it’s pretty obvious that the second cop that arrived on scene, knew right away that something wasn’t right. is it possible that he could be one of the good ones? maybe it’s even starting to sink in with some cops that you just can’t treat people that way? that’s probably too much to hope for, but i am surprised that the department responded so quickly to the incident, you can bet that cop is still getting paid though, now we’ll see if he’s charged or gets to keep his job. he has no business being a cop.

  4. Cops do this for the money; for their retirement. This cop just made a thousand dollars for the company, over an expired tag.
