That’s what is being claimed by the Family of Deven Guilford who was shot by an officer who made a traffic stop of the young teenager. The Officer has been cleared of any wrong-doing, and is clearly heard on camera. Devin claims that officer had his bright lights on and was blinding him, which caused Devin to flash the officer. After asking the Driver to get out of the vehicle, an argument between the two ensues, and the officer tazes Devin – a struggle is heard, then shots and the young teenager dies.
The family is now taking legal action claiming it was excessive force.
GCMA would like to know your thoughts and whether you think it was ok for the officer to act in the way he did. Do you think that our police are clearly going over the top with power they have? Tell us!
