This story does not actually involve tasers, but it's very much indirectly germane to the taser issue.
The It all goes here blog pointed me to a story [LINK] about a crazy police officer in Washington state beating up a 15-year-old girl.
From what I can see in the video (see link above), he probably asked her to remove her shoes, so she (being a teenager) kicked off her shoe in the direction of the officer. That should have provoked a good laugh, but instead the officer goes completely insane and puts a severe pounding on the little girl. Even after she was "properly restrained".
Decision makers need to keep this sort of incident in mind when they listen to the reassuring words from police officials.
I expect that most police would not do such a thing. But obviously some would.
