SSCC #321–Portland

Police took down Dan Halsted while he was just innocently walking home. The officer stunned Halsted five times with a Taser in the back because he thought he sprayed some graffiti.

Then when the officer realized that he screwed up what did he do?

"The arresting officer in his police report, he made up a whole other story and said that I had been running down the street with a couple other people."

Don’t worry though if you live in Portland:

The settlement comes not long after a city audit recommended police limit the times a person’s stunned. Most police agencies train officers to stun suspects up to three times.

Portland police doesn’t comment on lawsuits but said officers just completed refresher training on Tasers.

Because that totally solves the problem of out of control police officers that obviously have zero restraint.

Because someone running away from you while you’re acting aggressive is an excuse to continually use force.
