Virginia cop is charged with assault after repeatedly using TASER on a black man while kneeling on his neck!!!

A white police officer in Virginia has been charged with assault after body camera footage showed him using ‘unacceptable’ force when using a stun gun on a disoriented black man who screamed ‘I can’t breathe’.

The Fairfax County Police Department on Saturday released footage of the June 5 incident, which showed Officer Tyler Timberlake using excessive force on a victim.

It is one of several recent allegations of police brutality after the death of George Floyd, an African-American man who died in police custody on May 25 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Footage begins with an unidentified Fairfax police officer interacting with a man who appears to be disoriented and pacing along a residential street.
