A dramatic video posted online earlier this week has captivated public interest, as it depicts alleged abuses of the criminal justice system. The video shows a police officer using a taser on a 6-year-old boy who was trying to help his mother escape arrest on drug charges.

You should probably just watch it, though, rather than read a description of it, if we’re going to be completely honest.

The video has already received over 7,000,000 views, which we acknowledge is a hell of a lot more than the 39 this article has had so far. But we don’t have permission to show you the clip so we can only give you a less than perfect account of what happens.

That’s why it might make more sense for you to just stop reading, Google the video, and watch it on the site that is hosting it. Doesn’t that make more sense? Just throwing that out there.

The video, which was taken by a neighbor on a cell phone, begins with police knocking on the door of Tamara Williams, a housewife from Santa Barbara, California. Viewers can hear her inside the house yelling to her son to help her escape them.

We should say, though, we can’t really capture the drama of this scene in words. Only the imagery of the original video, which is available for free online but not on this webpage, can truly depict the powerful moments that have captured the nation’s empathy.



In the second part of the video, which begins at 1:26 if you’d rather just go to the page, scroll to the time, and watch it, viewers can see Tamara’s son trying to help her escape from the window. Police approach them and tell the child to stop, and when he refuses they use their taser on him.

If this sounds unbelievable to you, well, don’t take our word for it. Just watch it. We’re not allowed to publish a link but let’s just say it’s available on a website that rhymes with ShmoxNews.com. Should be pretty obvious…it’s not BoxNews…get it? Yeah?

Reaction to the video so far has been mixed. We could tell you about it, or you could just look at the comments below the video on the site where it being hosted. That way you wouldn’t have to trust us to present the feedback in a fair and balanced way. You could just see for yourself. You could watch the video and form your own opinion about it too.

Though, now that we’ve spoiled the entire thing for you, there may not really be a reason to at this point.

Note: This article is satirical and the video we’re describing doesn’t exist. As far as we know.
