Calif. cops use stun gun twice on unarmed amputee
(AP) – 1 day ago
MERCED, Calif. — A California man whose legs are amputated says police used a stun gun on him twice and violently manhandled him even though he was unarmed.
Internal affairs investigators say they're looking into the complaint by 40-year-old Gregory Williams, who was arrested Sept. 11 on suspicion of domestic violence and resisting arrest.
Williams and witnesses say officers tasered the wheelchair-bound man twice, then left him handcuffed with his pants down on the sidewalk in broad daylight. Williams spent six days in jail before prosecutors said they lacked evidence to charge him.
Merced officers said in a police report that Williams was uncooperative and refused to give his 2-year-old daughter to Child Protective Services. The police department has declined further comment, pending the internal investigation.

I guess if your in a wheelchair this means you are incapable of committing crimes? I guess all of those inmates in the prison I work, some with no legs, are completely innocent?

I think sometimes the taser is the safest way to get control of anyone. It beats a night stick I would think.
