The Daily Journal (21 Jan 2010) - A third lawsuit, filed Wednesday in connection with a police officer using a Taser gun on students, alleges the officer shocked three other students as far back as March 2009, while being supervised by the school's principal. "This case will show that, contrary to the school's statement, these tasings have been an ongoing problem," said James R. Rowe, the attorney representing the parents of the alleged victims Monday. And the lawsuit, seeking $33 million in damages, also foreshadows more legal issues as it alleges that school resource officer Lonnie Netzel -- the same officer named in the two lawsuits filed last week -- used a Taser gun on students suffering from traumatic brain injuries at Kankakee Junior High School.
