SSCC #442 – Cleburne

A Cleburne teenager was hit with a Taser by police while he was having a medical emergency, and the incident was caught on tape.

So what kind of medical emergency was it?

The 19-year-old driver was in a hypoglycemic state. He’s diabetic. His blood sugar was dangerously low.

The kid was unresponsive and the officers response was to tase the kid.  Then the medics tell the officer what was wrong and the officer knows he’s in trouble.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen something like this either.

State Sponsored Criminal #442: Officer John Doe

Because again, your first response should always be force.  That way you can compound the medical emergency.
