I'm just feeling evil.
The girl is 20 years old, is captured by the police and handcuffed. At some point she escapes with the handcuffs still on and while she is running she is tased in the back, falls forward, cracks her skull and becomes a vegetable.
There are soooo many issues with this one. First of all she was running away from the police, an obvious no-no. She is 100% in the wrong in that regard.
The issue becomes more complicated when you hear some of the details. The police procedures are that a taser should never be used on someone from behind when the suspect is running from you for this very reason. The whole incident was recorded by accident and as soon as the officer realized the camera was on he turned it off. The video shows that the girl was still cuffed and was not escaping very quickly. The cop was a big fatty but he probably would have had no problem catching up with her and detaining her. He had his taser out immediately and did aboslutely nothing to try and stop her before using it.
Finally, this girl was arrested for leaving the scene of an accident, a misdemeanor. Was all of this worth doing over a misdemeanor?
There is a video of the incident and while I haven't seen it, I heard the entire thing and heard it described on the radio along with an interview with her attorney. The sound of her smacking her head on the pavement is pretty disturbing.
Anyways, have at it. I'm sure there will be some dissenting opinions on this one.
