Charges Dropped Against Black Man Tasered by White Rochester, NY Cop Inside City Bus Station

Rochester, NY cop points taser at Brendan Carter inside bus station.

By Davy V.

A Rochester, NY City Court Judge today dropped charges against a black man who was tassered by a white Rochester, NY Police officer inside the city's new $50 million dollar downtown bus station last February.

Wednesday morning, Rochester, NY City Court Judge Theresa Johnson dropped all charges against Brendan Carter.

In February, Carter was listening to music on his headphones while he waited for a city bus to go see his sick uncle.

That's when several Regional Transit Service security guards surrounded Carter, accused him of being drunk and told him he had to leave the bus station.

When Carter questioned why he was being kicked out, the RTS security guards called Rochester Police.

As Carter walks away, heading out of the bus station, an overzealous Rochester, NY cop arrives, and almost immediately tasers Carter, who drops to the  floor.

The incident was captured on video.
