Another Black Man Killed By White Police Officer

A Black man named, Baron "Scooter" Pikes is said to have been tasered 9 times in the span of 14 minutes by a White Police Officer, in the Louisiana town of Winnfield. This town is said to be brewing with racial tension as a result of this incident. With Winnfield being just 40 miles from the unforgettable Jena, La. and Baron Pikes reported to be a first cousin of Mychal Bell, many are shocked as to the irony of the bizarre conncection between the Jena and Winnfield cases. Many Louisiana residents are outraged at the excessive usage of the taser, and what ultimately led up to the unwarranted death. It is however openly perceived as just another case of normalized police-brutality.
