Legless man: Cops tasered me just to be ‘downright nasty’

A wheelchair-bound, legless man in Merced, California, says police officers tasered him twice, pushed him out of his wheelchair and left him handcuffed in broad daylight naked from the waist down before arresting him on charges that would never be pressed.

According to the Merced Sun-Star, the Merced Police Department is now investigating two officers who responded to a domestic disturbance call that resulted in 40-year-old Gregory Williams spending six days in jail without charges.

Several witnesses back up Williams’ claims, the newspaper reports. The paper obtained a short, grainy video that appears to show Williams, naked from the waist down, sitting handcuffed outside his apartment complex.

The Sun-Star writes:

[A]lthough the two lead arresting officers are white, and Williams is black, it remains unknown whether race was a factor in the incident. Those two officers remain on duty.

Williams said the officers never used any racial epithets toward him. Although he does believe race and class played a role in his arrest, he also feels the police just wanted to be “downright nasty” to him. “They did what they did because they can get away with it,” he said. “They’ve been doing it so long, it doesn’t matter who they do it to. They just think they can get away with it.”

Taser Bullets Would Shock Suspects For 5 Minutes

Taser Bullets Would Shock Suspects For 5 Minutes

New Scientist
August 26, 2009

THE manufacturer of the Taser stun gun is sparking new controversy with the commercial launch of a long-range version that can be fired from a 12-bore shotgun.

Government-funded tests on initial versions of the new Extended Range Electronic Projectile (XREP) have revealed possible health risks to people on the receiving end, New Scientist has learned. The manufacturer, Taser International of Scottsdale, Arizona, says the issue has been addressed in redesigned devices, but these have yet to be independently tested.

Unlike the current Taser X26, which fires darts attached to short wires, the XREP is wire-free. Its projectile, the size of a shotgun cartridge, is designed to pierce the target’s skin and contains battery-powered circuits that deliver a debilitating shock. It has a range of 20 metres or more, compared with 5 metres for previous Tasers.

A team led by Cynthia Bir, a trauma injury specialist at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, found that some of the 275 XREP cartridges that Taser supplied for testing last year were capable of delivering an electric shock for more than 5 minutes, rather than the 20 seconds of shocking current they are supposed to generate. Previous Taser stun guns shock for only 5 seconds per discharge, though that can be repeated.

Bir’s team reported their findings at a conference on non-lethal weapons in Ettlingen, Germany, in May. Steve Wright of Leeds Metropolitan University in the UK, who has studied electric shock weapons, says Bir’s report that the device can carry on shocking for 5 minutes is worrying. The effects of prolonged shocking are not known, he says, but the finding raises concerns about the potential damage to a victim’s mental health.

Minivan Mom Tasered In Front Of Her Kids

Minivan Mom Tasered In Front Of Her Kids

In January, an Onondaga County sheriff’s deputy pulled over Audra Harmon, who had two of her kids with her in her minivan. A routine traffic stop escalated quickly.

The deputy, Sean Andrews, accused her of talking on her cell phone. She said she could prove him wrong.

He said she was speeding. She denied it and got out of the van. He told her to get back in. She did, then he ordered her back out.

He yanked her out by the arm, knocked her down with two Taser shots and charged her with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. His rationale on the disorderly conduct charge: She obstructed traffic when she got out of the van. The speeding accusation: going 50 mph in a 45-mph zone.

The scene along Hopkins Road in Salina on the afternoon of Jan. 31 was captured by a camera on the dashboard of Andrews’ patrol car. Harmon, 38, says the video is proof of police brutality.

She plans to sue the sheriff’s office today, claiming Andrews was improperly trained in the use of his Taser. It’s not supposed to be used to take down people who pose no threat, she said.

84-Year-Old Woman Bodyslammed by Police

POLICE BRUTALITY: 84-Year-Old Elderly Woman With Alzheimers Gets Bodyslammed by Police

Huliq News

First, it should be noted that Virginia Dodson, 84, was indeed wielding a knife when confronted by police. However, the frail Alzheimer’s patient was doing so because she had an Alzheimer’s-related dementia attack and used a knife to cut herself out of her seatbelt.

The incident occurred on the night of August 1st, at a Whitehall, Ohio Wal-Mart store. Left alone in the car by her daughter, Virginia Dodson couldn’t remember why she was sitting alone in the car, and panicked. In that state, she was no longer able to remember how to unbuckle her seatbelt, and thus used a steak knife to cut herself out.

One has to wonder why she was left in the car, knowing she has Alzheimer’s, with a steak knife available.

A woman, acting disoriented in a parking lot, holding a knife? Police were called, as you would expect. According to reports, Dodson did not drop the weapon when asked to, and a police officer disarmed her by using a pretty familiar move, twisting her arm so as to bodyslam her to the pavement.

Now, while some have said, why didn’t they simply grab the knife away from her, if someone’s waving a knife around, it’s not easy to grab without getting cut yourself. On the other hand, you can imagine how such an event looks. In fact, you can see it here.

The real culprit in this is the caregiver, who should never have left Virginia in the car alone. However, you can see after the incident that since the officer was white, albeit a woman, the situation quickly deteriorated and was given racial overtones from those witnessing it.
