Imagine calling the authorities because your child is missing, only to find out that not only did he fall off a highway overpass, the police applied a Taser to him nearly 20 times instead of rendering aid.
The Ozark cops used a Taser 19 times on a boy with a broken back who’d fallen off an overpass.
“He refused to comply with the officers and so the officers had to deploy their Tasers in order to subdue him… It’s a big concern for the officers to keep this guy out of traffic, to keep him from getting hurt.”
I know that overpass. I’ve driven it countless times, visiting family who live there.
Something smells bad here. I wonder what it could be… maybe stunning a kid who’d just fallen (or jumped) 30 feet? Think about the usual height signs for truckers on the overpasses where you live; 30 feet is really high. So they electrocuted this kid 19 times so that he wouldn’t hurt himself because he was incoherent and not moving when they told him to do so. The injuries from his fall would have prevented anyone from doing that.
If the Missouri AG isn’t looking into the police conduct here, maybe the US DoJ will. This isn’t political and it’s not partisan. But it sure isn’t protecting and serving.
It’s a crime.
