Whenever something absurd happens, it’s 99.85% likely that TMZ will end up with footage of it. So when Marquis Daniels’ father (Willie L. Buie) was tased, I figured it was only a matter of time until they had the footage of it. Of course, they had it within a day.
I’m not going to pretend I can really make out what’s going on. After watching the video, I still have no idea whether it was Buie’s fault or he just ran into an over-zealous police force. But it kind of looks like they tased him while he was on the ground while three police officers were holding him down. Again, I’m not sure, mostly because the footage is only an inch-wide and watching it — more than anything else — simply made my head hurt. But if my eyes were correct and he really was tased while three police officers held him, it begs the question, “Why?”
Again, I’m reaching. I really have no idea what happened. And Buie has served 11 years in jail for various crimes over the years, so it’s kind of tough to give him the benefit of the doubt.
