Two white police officers saw a black man cross the street without using the crosswalk. Their response was to run at the man and yell, “You’re gonna get f***** up hardcore.” Once backup arrived, officers caught Johnnie Rush, held him down, punched him in the head and put him in a chokehold. “I can’t breathe,” Rush said in between gasps for air. Then the cops used a high voltage taser on him and put him in handcuffs as he cried out. Have you ever crossed a street outside of the crosswalk? Are you ever in fear that you’ll be beaten and tased by police for doing so?
