Eric Smith is a tour manager from our Warped Tour scene that has worked with many bands covered on PropertyOfZack. Smith passed out and became unresponsive yesterday, which resulted in his girlfriend calling 911 from their East Rochester, NY apartment for medical attention.
Smith, however, was not greeted with care. After regaining consciousness, Smith declined going to the hospital, which resulted in EMS technicians and police offers grabbing Smith to forcefully take him to the hospital in addition to handcuffing his girlfriend. The police then tased Smith and fractured his left eye socket after he requested the police remove his girlfriend’s handcuffs. A brutal report from The Free Thought Project can be partially read below after the jump.
Police brutality actually pisses me off… Like a lot.
