  •  This shit has got to stop (8+ / 0-)

    I've heard of similar cases here in California before. One was about five or six years ago, a developmentally disabled teenager in a wheel chair was tased for no reason.

    This is horrifying.

    It has to stop, but unless the public forceably tell each mayor to reign in the police of their jurisdiction -- usually through city council pressure -- I don't know how to stop this sort of thing. It takes a lot of work, but it's necessary and should be pursued. Lawsuits are another possible option. Hopefully, since he has Down's Syndrome, it could potentially qualify as a Civil Rights violation case more readily.
