Two policemen intervene for a car left illegally parked in front of a shop and, when the trader protests, chaos breaks out: in total confusion, the agents pull out the taser, the man's wife falls to the ground between screams and The operator is immobilized and then taken away.
This happened yesterday morning in the center of Vasto, in front of a fish shop.
The scene was filmed by those present and the video is now making the rounds on the net, generating quite a few controversies.
To share it, among others, the general secretary of the Communist Refoundation, Maurizio Acerbo, who writes on Facebook: "I believe that these agents should be immediately suspended from service. But what are we in Los Angeles?".
In the video that is circulating, the policeman can be heard saying to the merchant "maybe you don't understand, I'm about to report you and come with me to the office".
"But did you understand that I'm working?" replies the man.
When the agents try to catch the shopkeeper to take him away, the shopkeeper's wife intervenes and, at that point, chaos erupts.
One of the two policemen takes out his taser and loudly says: "You have to get down, I'll shoot you with the taser".
The woman falls to the ground screaming at the top of her lungs, those present continue to film the scene and a man - probably an employee of the business - contacts the carabinieri, requesting immediate intervention.
In the end the trader, not without difficulty, is thrown to the ground, handcuffed and taken away.
He will then be denounced for resisting a public official.
The policemen's lawyer, the lawyer Fiorenzo Cieri, reports the local site ChiaroQuotidiano.it, affirms that "in the video you only see what happened afterwards, but it is the consequence of what had happened previously. No shooting was done no dart with the taser, which only emitted a sound signal used as a deterrent. My clients - he adds - will sue, person by person, all those who have made offensive comments. I am amazed at the ease with which one has no respect for the uniform".
