Feb 18 - R&B singer Tank Arrested and Tasered
 

 
R&B singer Tank was arrested and tasered early this morning (Feb. 18) at the House of Blues in New Orleans, where many celebrities were in attendance for NBA's All-Star weekend. But while arrests are barely news anymore in the music industry, this one seems a bit more interesting as Tank is accusing the New Orleans Police Department of police brutality.

According to friend Ira Dewitt, who was with Tank when he was arrested, Tank was leaving the House of Blues with her after an afterparty there following the NBA All-Star game. The two were on their way to meet Tank's driver on Decatur Street, where the driver told them all to meet. But police told them they couldn't walk in that direction. According to Dewitt, the police started to get belligerent. She says that Tank asked the cops, "Why you gotta be that way?," and then 3 or 4 policemen separated the two, threw Tank to the ground, and tasered him.

"I am 115 lbs, 5 feet 5 inches tall and I was suprised at how rough they were with me," she says. "'Please don't hurt him,' I kept saying, and they were like, 'If you try to help him, you're going to jail." Dewitt, a psychologist, says she ended up falling to the ground after being mishandled by police. She says all of the officers, except one, were White.

After being tasered, Tank had to be taken to a nearby hospital, where he was treated before being taken to jail. Dewitt bailed him out this morning. "He was bleeding. His back was bleeding and I had to clean him up," she says.

According to Dewitt, Tank was arrested and charged with intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. She says the two are planning to go to court later.

Sources say that several police officers were overhead making s3xual comments about Dewitt after Tank was in custody. But according to others, the police did a good job keeping New Orleans under control the entire weekend.

maybe you should get into the habit of rereading things to make sure you comprehend what is being said. tanks girl is describing herself. shes was stating how small she was to emphasize how rough they were with her.

Man those cops just love their Tasers.

But hey, now they're not shooting black people, only momentarily shocking them with bursts of electricity.

I guess it's minor improvement, though it's slightly disturbing they're using funds to come up with more humane ways to beat black people, when it would be more cost effective and good for public image to just stop beating black people.

I could imagine there is a department budget chart somewhere that has "Developing New Ways To fu*k With Black People" on it.
