What parallels can you draw between the two scenarios?
In both cases, there was the use of unreasonable force. Officer Slager used unreasonable
force that led to the killing of Scott. In PO Watson’s case, Officer Watson uses unreasonable
force against Mr. Sanford. He strokes his using a taser to make the arrest easy. The second
similarity is that where officers asked the suspects self-incriminating questions. Officer Slager
asked Scott whether the vehicle he was driving belonged to him or it was stolen. Similarly,
Officer Watson asked the suspect questions that implicated him with drug dealing. The
difference is that violations of different rights happened. In Slager’s case, the use of
unreasonable force on a person without any legal justification happened. However, in Watson’s
case, an unreasonable arrest and seizure happened.
