The officer used pepper spray and tasered Love while removing him from a Dollar General store bathroom where employees said he had been for more than an hour. They then discovered Love was hearing impaired and was unable to communicate with officers while in the bathroom. [LINK]
This is yet another example of those vunerable being tasered. The stupid advice of "Just obey..." is wrong on so many levels that it's beyond unhelpful. It's based on bad thinking and is actually a bit dangerous in that it encourages such taser abuse.
They attempted to have him booked on charges of resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and failure to obey a police officer, but a magistrate refused.
Typical attempted "cover charge".
The magistrate must have been pretty quick thinking. Bless his heart.
