In this incident, you can clearly see that the police taser is being used in Touch Torture mode for no other reason except to provide street-level electro-punishment (torture, pure and simple) to the subject.
Watch the video at 1:37 (cop enters frame carrying taser) to 1:51 (starts torturing victim).
Judge and jury? Bah! Not required. These cops make up their own wild-west street level justice.
Given the fact that tasers are used far more often than the police have historically used their guns, this sort of taser use is obviously far too common.
Thankfully, the cops in this case have been charged.
And note that Taser International will not make any statement about this all-too-typical application of their pocket-sized torture toy. Their silence is telling.
