Pittsburgh police abuse of power leads to a delightful taser video

Chris Spags Founder and Editor

Detective Frank Rende is under investigation after an altercation with a couple of revelers during Pittsburgh’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Who’s right? Who’s wrong? Take a look at the video and help us decide.

It’s worth noting that Rende claims to have just put the taser to the neck of the man in the video but that he only went to the ground due to his drunkenness. It’s also worth noting that Rende was a part of a similar tasing situation of a fan at Pittsburgh’s PNC Park two years ago.

The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports that Rende has had over a dozen accusations of conduct unbecoming of a police officer. (via BroBible)
