More Taser Abuse

According to CBS News, Merced, California police tasered an unarmed, wheelchair-bound double amputee.

Williams and witnesses say officers tasered the wheelchair-bound man twice, then left him handcuffed on the sidewalk in broad daylight, with his pants down.
I'm sure an unarmed man with no legs in a wheelchair was such a threat to police that blasting him with electricity was necessary. Maybe he tried to run them over.

To add insult to injury, Mr. Williams spent six days in jail before prosecutors figured out that they "lacked evidence to charge him." Don't worry, I'm sure the police will have great excuses about why this tasering was completely justifiable and with their taser use policy.
