Miami Beach Police tazer kid to death after doing graffiti

Graffiti // Thursday, August 08, 2013
Once again the excessive force taken by police officers has taken center stage in Miami, where local police tasered an 18-year-old boy to death Tuesday night after chasing him for doing graffiti. Israel Hernandez who was a skateboarder and artist, was doing graffiti on an abandoned McDonalds, which led to a chase and the eventual tasering. Hernandez recently launched his own skateboard line and had a number of shows featuring his artwork in local galleries. His sister was quoted saying, “He wanted to change the world somehow through art.”
