Cop shots a teen for flashing lights. Shocking video

Yet another video of US police atrocities has entered the internet.

The Sheriff's sergeant Jonathan Frost shot a 17-year-old Deven Guilford for flashing lights at him to switch off the high beams that constituted a threat to other drivers.

The case happened back in February, however the prosecution has claimed this week Frost not guilty.

During the confrontation that ensued, Frost admitted that two other drivers had also flashed their lights at him and that his headlights were brand new, and probably too bright.

Despite this, Frost turned the tables on Deven and demanded him to provide his license, registration and insurance details.

The police officer though refused to show his badge. Deven in its turn refused to give Frost the documents, maintaining that he had broken no law.

Deven Guilford was ripped out of his vehicle, tased and then shot seven times by Jonathan Frost.

Frost later claimed that Deven, an unarmed and clearly non-aggressive seventeen year old kid who had just been tased, attacked the officer, managing to get on top of Frost and punch him in the face, causing him to fear for his life. The Sergeant did suffer cuts and bruises to his face, X-rays showed no fractures.

This week, Eaton County Prosecutor Doug Lloyd said he reviewed the investigation by Michigan State Police, as well as the video footage, and concluded that the sergeant acted lawfully.

Following the decision, the Guilford family, who plan to file a civil lawsuit in federal court, released the following statement:

"There was no reason or necessity for the officer to physically remove our son from the car without considering other options to avoid an unnecessary violent escalation. It must be also noted that Deven was not in possession (of) any weapon and emphatically told the officer that he was not armed. We also have serious concerns about whether the officer used unreasonable force against Deven under the circumstances."

"The family is very unhappy," said Attorney Hugh Davis. "It's just very hard to go from dimming lights or not dimming lights to being dead."
