File under "ROLLS-EYES".
...officer then attempted to taser the inmate through the door opening, however the taser did not affect the inmate and he pulled one of the taser probes out of himself. Then armed with a replacement taser cartridge, the detention officer deployed it onto the inmate and entered the cell. Inmate ... forced the taser device from the officer's hand while the device cycled and pressed it to the officer's upper right chest "drive stunning" him. The officer then struck the inmate, causing him to drop the taser which then slid under the bunk in the cell. The inmate then grabbed the device, reactivated it and tasered the other detention officer in the upper torso. [LINK]
Sooner or later, an officer is going to coincidentally die of "excited delirium" immediately after being repeatedly tasered in the chest by an offender.
Perhaps the inmates should be reminded that detention officers are not to be tasered in the "upper chest", nor in the "upper torso". Such locations are not in accordance with the recently-updated taser targeting guidelines.
A sternly-worded memo needs to be issued to all inmates and offenders.
Geesh - it's like herding cats...
