CASE ENTRY

Myers v. Brewer

Allegation: Barber County, Kan. officers give man inconsistent orders (hands up, get on the ground). Eight seconds later, an officer shoots him in the chest with a beanbag from close range, killing him, even though he was unarmed, standing still with hands at his sides. Tenth Circuit: Video from bodycam doesn’t show everything but doesn’t contradict the allegations. A jury should decide if this was excessive force.
