A California man was tazed from behind by an overzealous park ranger after attempting to walk away from the ranger when she refused to explain to him why he was being detained.
The confrontation started after the man was stopped over having his two dogs off their leashes in an area that allowed off leash dogs for years and had just recently changed the rules.
Instead of calmly explaining the new rules to the man, the park ranger attempted to detain him while at the same time refusing to tell him why.
A Yahoo News article reported on this disgusting display of the ever evolving police state in America.
“It was really scary,” said Michelle Babcock, who said she witnessed the incident as she and her husband were walking their own dogs. “I just felt so bad for him.”
The unnamed park ranger reportedly confronted Hesterberg about his dogs. Hesterberg, who said he wasn’t carrying his wallet at the time, allegedly gave a false name. The ranger asked him to remain at the scene but Hesterberg instead attempted to leave before he was shot in the back with the taser.
Babcock said Hesterberg had repeatedly asked the ranger why he was being detained. “He just tried to walk away. She never gave him a reason,” Babcock said.
Ten years ago Park Rangers were some of the nicest people in America. Now, after 9/11, The Department of Homeland Security has trained local police forces of all kinds that the American people cannot be trusted and should be treated as possible terrorists.
