  1. Those poor little boys screaming 'Daddy!' in absolute shear terror, watching as their father is being tortured in front of them by THE POLICE! I could not believe what I was watching! (Those police officers must be on some sort of drugs or so used to doing that to people and getting away with it, as they clearly have absolutely no shame or respect for the law and they need to be fired immediately and then sent to jail. Not sent home for 30 hours without pay because the police chief and the Mayor of Glendale decided nothing was wrong… seriously? The ridiculous Mayor and the police chief need to be fired as well, if they are deciding that this is acceptable behavior regarding the safety of the public, that they swore to serve and protect. I mean who does that to a human being? It was like watching Nazi SS officers in a war movie. Just unbelievable!)

  2. Don’t open your mouth unless you watched the full body cam video. ABC News fails to mention other things, like the passenger resisting arrest and not following commands from the officers. The officer “taunting’ the subject is retarded. That was not taunting that was the officer trying to get the subject to stop resisting. If you follow what the officers tell you to do then things like this won’t ever happen

  3. If this dude got tazed 11 times and was still up and fighting then he was on skme serious drugs end of story. He will feel it all once the meth wears off for sure. If your gonna act a fool on the street you're gonna get rolled up like a lil wimp too. This fool should count his lucky stars he wasn't given the dirt nap in front of his kids. No sympathy at all for doing drugs and toting your kids around town high as all heck then tussling with the cops.

  4. Wheatcroft is now in jail for a burglary he committed. When one knows this, things seem different. When a person refuses to show an ID to an officer, or even give his/her name, it means they are either really stupid or they currently have a warrant out for their arrest. This footage has obviously been edited as well, that ruins it’s credibility. Also i saw no scrotum tasing so either it didn’t happen or the media couldn’t show that.

  5. THE COP HAD A GOD COMPLEX THAT CONSUMED HIM TO THE POINT HE JUDGED WHETHER OR NOT THE MAN HE WAS ASSAULTING SHOULD BE ABLE TO HAVE MORE CHILDREN WHICH MADE HIM TAZER THE MANS GENITALS. HES A SICK MAN WHO DOESN’T DESERVE TO HAVE ANY KIND OF POWER, ESPECIALLY A POLICE BADGE. SHAME ON THE DEPARTMENT AND EVERY OFFICER THAT WAS PRESENT.

  6. Suspended for three days is not equal to suffering he risks being allowed to roam free with power in any community. That officer and whoever came up with that suspension should be in prison for years for being obvious dangers to society… but we don't live in a just world. That cop/monster will still live a life probably ten times better than most of the people reading this.

  7. Cop PULLS DOWN SUSPECT'S PANTS AND TAZES HIS BALLS!!!
    NOW, instead of a good METH bust, some SEXUAL SADIST decides to TAZE HIS BALLS!!
    Now, Arizona tax payers will make that meth-head a millionaire!!!
    BECAUSE SOME SADISTIC COP DECIDED TO PULL THE MAN'S PANTS DOWN AND TAZE HIS GENITALS!!!

  8. I heard the person getting smart mouthed w/ the Cops, when asked your name, just answer the damn question without attitude a lot of situations can be avoided if People on both sides showed some respect.

  9. those police need to be in jail–also that man and his family need to sue for millions–wow how evil! put those cop down at the border.

  10. What the bloody hell is wrong with these officers.
    He wasn’t even driving!
    Don’t you think that was a little excessive, especially in front of his kids.

  11. Imagine a Pastor of a church that fed the needy but he sexually assaults the young girls in the congregation from time to time. That's essentially what we have when people make this argument that not all cops are bad..

  12. He should not have resisted. Just show him your fucking ID! All you have to do is shut your fucking mouth and not be an asshole and you'll be fine.

  13. Sue the justice out of them! BUT move away from their jurisdiction now
    unless you want to end up like Steven Avery in Rubeville Wis-CON-SIN
    Making of a Murderer

  14. THE MEDIA ALWAYS LEAVES OUT VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION!
    Official Statement – you can confirm it all by carefully examining the video! @ https://youtu.be/XPPQaRDO1a4
    GLENDALE, Ariz. – On July 26, 2017, Glendale Police Officers were in the area 5900 W. Myrtle Avenue conducting intensive patrol due to increased crime reported in the area. At approximately 7:30 PM, Officers Matt Schneider and Mark Lindsey contacted the occupants of a Ford Taurus after Officer Schneider observed a traffic violation. The contact occurred in a parking lot that was included in a blanket trespass agreement with the City and parking lot owner. The officers both approached the Ford Taurus and found that it was occupied by three adults and two children. Upon contact, officers discovered that the driver did not have a driver’s license and began to address an observed seat belt violation. The occupants of the vehicle were identified as Shawn Blackburn (34), the driver of the vehicle; Johnny Wheatcroft (37), the front seat passenger; and Anya Chapman (34), the driver’s side rear passenger with two children beside her, ages eleven (11) and six (6).

    ​During the officers’ contact at the vehicle, they each noted Johnny Wheatcroft reaching down below the seat into a backpack. Mr. Wheatcroft also immediately upon contact exhibited verbal non-compliance by refusing to identify himself and failed to obey the officer’s instructions to stop reaching his hands beneath the seat into the backpack and about the vehicle in the area between the seat and console. For the safety of themselves and those around them, including the minor children, the officers attempted to remove Mr. Wheatcroft from the vehicle so they could maintain a safe eye on him for the duration of the traffic stop as well as conduct a pat down for weapons.

    Mr. Wheatcroft immediately began to physically resist the officers’ attempts to escort him from the vehicle while continuing to place his hands where officers could not see them. Officers displayed their Tasers and warned him of potential Taser use to gain his compliance; however, Mr. Wheatcroft continued to argue, yell and physically resist the officers’ control holds. Due to the physical resistance from Mr. Wheatcroft, the Taser was used in a drive stun capacity in order to gain control and avoid physical injury.

    ​While officers attempted to detain Mr. Wheatcroft, Anya Chapman swung a bag filled with bottled drinks, striking Officer Lindsey in the head, rendering him unconscious. Seeing his partner unconscious, coupled with Mr. Wheatcroft’s continued resistance and the unknown threat from within the vehicle, Officer Schneider deployed his Taser, striking Mr. Wheatcroft. Dealing with two adults that were being physically aggressive and had already assaulted one officer, Officer Schneider asked for additional officers to respond. As multiple officers arrived on scene, they tended to the injured officer and helped detain Mr. Wheatcroft as he was continuing to resist officers by kicking and screaming. Mr. Wheatcroft was eventually able to be calmed down, and he and Anya Chapman were taken into custody without further incident. As officers continued their investigation, a usable quantity of methamphetamine was found within the vehicle. Mr. Wheatcroft and Ms. Chapman were charged with Aggravated Assault due to their actions, in which Ms. Chapman subsequently plead guilty.

    Fire personnel responded to the scene to evaluate Mr. Wheatcroft and the injured officer. Mr. Wheatcroft refused medical attention. The officer that was struck was transported to a local valley hospital for medical treatment and returned to full duty several days later.



    The Glendale Police Department is dedicated to remaining transparent with the community that we serve, and public safety is the top priority. The Department recognizes that society expects accountability and we hold ourselves to the highest standards set by Arizona Police Officer Standards and Training as well as state law. Per Department protocol regarding any response to resistance, a review of the officers’ actions has been performed and discipline implemented regarding certain tactics used by one officer.

  15. Now come on ABC! Show the WHOLE video! You do not show what led up to this! You do not show why the officers acted the way they did, nor why they acted appropriately!!! People more and more are not following simple, lawful instructions of law enforcement. This is what gets them into trouble, 9 times out of 10!
