Do you have some inside information? I see nothing in the report of previous encounters with the law or of Lochner lunging AT police. The fact a police report contains so few details - accounts, I remind you, that are almost always overfilled with trivial detail - leads me to question police actions in this case.
Yes...I agree. Thankfully this will happen in a courtroom and not a police internal investigation. I myself
missed the Taser burn on the victims left hand also. Someone here want to bet me a quarter (paypal?)
that this guy wasn't prone in bed on his right side with his left hand trying to protect the back of his
neck, turtled into a ball??? I'm just looking at the locations of the many Taser prong burns. Time will tell...
Well when someone with a gun breaks into your house, I hope the cops don't show up....
Well the police are entitled to defend themselves, especially while on duty...
Keep in mind that this family has had a history of being anti cop. I would seriously expect those photos are doctored.
The story is very misleading then as it say's the police burst into his room and he was unarmed and in bed. If this retarded man was able to get out of bed and was lunging at the officers, I wonder how he ended up with two sets of Taser prong burns on the "back" of his left arm, and three more sets of Taser prong burns on his "back" between
his shoulder blades and his neck?
These burns would make sense if either the guy was turtled in a ball in his bed, or maybe
trying to get away from the police in an enclosed area. I'm not a CSI or anything but I
believe these prongs are either projected in more or less of a straight line... or used much
like a cattle prod. I don't think the police have the Taser "Boomerang" model yet that can
circle the room and repeatedly shock this guy in the back when he's lunging at them.
Should not the prong burns be on the front of this guy if he was lunging at them?
The guy who was assaulted has a brother that the police where looking for and he might very well be a dirty sh*t that "has it out for the Police," but I'm still not seeing where that justifies the Police bursting into the room of the victim and assaulting him like they did, and Tasering him five times. I'm assuming that there was more than one Officer present?

"He's coming right at us!" At least with the Taser, the Police don't have to explain five bullets in thisQuote has been trimmed

'Jimbo and Ned are best known for their hunting antics. However, their idea of hunting is to slaughter
anything and everything in sight, often with military weapons. They seem to have misinterpreted
hunting-regulations as attempts by the Democrats to outlaw hunting, and so shout: "It's coming right for us!"
before shooting an animal in order to exploit the loophole that they can kill in self-defense.'
Ontario's Special Investigations Unit says provincial police officers did not do anything wrong when they used a stun gun on a suspect who was in custody and handcuffed.Quote has been trimmed
In August, after officers were called to the Havelock Jamboree campground, east of Peterborough, a man was arrested for fighting and causing a disturbance, and then was handcuffed and put in the back of a police cruiser. According to the SIU report, the suspect continued to fight.
"He kicked out the rear passenger window, cutting his foot in the process, and repeatedly banged his head and face against the Plexiglas partition between the front and back seats causing his face to bleed," said the SIU in a news release. "The man was soon covered in blood and was transported directly to the Peterborough Regional Health Centre."
When the police arrived at the hospital, the man, whose name has not been released, continued to resist police.
"The man then was able to break the grip of at least one officer and failed to stop his behaviour even though warned that the Taser would be used. When the Taser was employed, the man was incapacitated and fell face first to the concrete," James Cornish, director of the SIU until recently, said in a prepared statement.
I always understood that tazers are meant to be alternatives to deadly force not compliance tools....
Using Taser on handcuffed man 'not unreasonable,' says police watchdog
Was the use of the taser justified or do you feel there could have been another way to deal with this situation?
