taser me once, shame on me

taser me twice, go to jail

====================================

SANTA ANA – An Orange County sheriff's deputy has been indicted on charges of illegally stunning a handcuffed suspect with a Taser – the first deputy criminally accused with misusing a stun gun since the agency began issuing the weapon four years ago.

The indictment, unsealed Friday, charges Christopher David Hibbs – a 14-year veteran of the sheriff’s department – with two felonies: assault or battery by a public officer and assault with a stun gun or taser.

Hibbs, 45, a father of two children who resides in Carona, ...

Prosecutors say the incident began when Hibbs and a deputy trainee spotted Lares, wearing a trench coat and holding a beer bottle as he walked down Ball Road toward Brookhurst Street in Anaheim around 2 a.m. on Sept. 13, 2007.

Hibbs pulled over their patrol car, and got out and asked to search Lares, prosecutors say.
Lares said no, according to prosecutors, and got into a physical fight with the deputy. Hibbs was knocked to the ground, and Lares ran away.

Hibbs chased the suspect. A nearby off-duty Los Angeles police officer, who saw the struggle, joined the pursuit. Lares was stopped about 250 feet from the car, where Hibbs "lawfully Tased" Lares, according to prosecutors.

The officers searched Lares. Prosecutors say he carried a loaded firearm in his trench coat. He was then handcuffed and put in the police car – where Hibbs used the stun gun on him after he repeatedly refused to give his correct name, according to prosecutors.

That might me a bit excessive...
I asked my wife once (CHP Officer) about excessive force, she agreed unloading 2 clips into someone might be considered excessive.

Mercedes Benz, enough said.

I have read of quite a few people being killed by these things. And, an officer using one on a pregnant woman. I think they are better than shooting someone but there has to be a standard of use. And what ever happened to just beating them with the night stick?

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

So next time you get pulled over for speeding and refuse to admit guilt, it would be okay for a policeman to taze you, right?

What is going on nowadays? You "taze" cattle not human beings. Like somebody else said, what happened to the old night stick to the leg?

This story reminds me of the "don't taze me bro" kid who was zapped while on the ground.

That's like all the kids with guns and crap. Whatever happened to a good old fashioned fist fight?

A tire tool works nicely as well.
