Marlin Gipson is a 20 year old black male college sophomore- approximately 5’5 130lbs.
On July 18, 2017 police officers entered his home with a K-9 unit in order to place him under arrest because he walked away from an officer after being racially profiled by Harris County Precinct 1 Deputy Constable Shane Cates while mowing lawns.
Normally, officers are allowed to only use the amount of force a prudent officer would reasonably believe necessary under the circumstances.
HOWEVER THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES HAS DECLARED OFFICERS SHOULD TREAT SUSPECTS VERY ROUGH WHEN PLACING THEM UNDER ARREST.
Harris County Constables must have received an advance on his speech.
They found Marlin cowering in an upstairs bedroom. After kicking in the bedroom door (pictured below), Marlin opened up the bathroom door where he was and raised his hands. At the officers instructions he turned his back to the officers and began to back up toward the closet in the bathroom, shrinking from a snarling police dog.
This is where the fun began for the constables. They hit Marlin with one taser to the back (picture below). Dropping his small frame to the ground.
They then commanded the K-9 unit to attack! The dog locked in on Marlin’s upper right arm and began ripping away at his limp body. (pictured below).
They then hit Marlin with a second shot from the taser gun in the back. At this point he lost all control of his body functions.
He was then handcuffed and repeatedly stomped on by the officers.
This misdemeanor arrest (while unconstitutional) would have made the 45th President proud!
