Hate Cops?? Heres another reason for ya.

Don't mind the title, I don't hate cops, just gotta share this with you.....

http://phillydtv.tumblr.com/post/834...edly-tasered-a

Quote:
Two US police officers have repeatedly tasered a rural woman who called police to complain of a prowler outside her house.

Janice Wells, 57, called the Richland Police Department when she feared a burglar was outside her clapboard house in a rural west Georgia town.

Minutes later when an officer came to her backdoor, she was screaming in pain and begging another officer not to be shocked again with a taser. The second officer joined the first one to complete the old woman’s trauma.

With each scream and cry, the officers threatened her with more shocks.

Much of what happened in front of Wells’ house was recorded by the camera on the dash of one of the officer’s patrol car. The minute-long dashboard video shows the officer pulling up to assist another officer.

The third-grade teacher can be heard on tape screaming “don’t do that” as a stun gun is heard repeatedly zapping.

Wells told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in an interview, “All of it is just unreal to me. I was scared to death. He kept tasing me. My fingernails are still burned.”

Ryan Smith of the Lumpkin Police Department has resigned and Tim Murphy of Richland Police Department was fired for using pepper spray and a stun gun on the woman.

I think I also heard where one officer is telling the other one that the lady would not tell him anything? That she wouldn't talk to him? Not sure, the volume was low. I'm not taking sides just yet on this one. I'd like to get some more of the story before I pass judgment.

I can't claim to know the full story, as there can be more facts that may be unknown to the media, etc.

I can say this though, some people just aren't cut out for law enforcement work. It happens in all career areas. Based upon the above, these guys show some serious training deficiencies to say the least...

My knee jerk reaction is to say the police messed up pretty good, given the fact that they've been let go. But... I've seen departments fire officers for political pressures when termination should not have happened.

She had no weapon, they didn't say she had one or that they thought she had one so there is NO reason for what they did.

The EVIDENCE is in that one quit and the other was fired. Done.


.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'
