SSCC #542 – Springdale

A Springdale police officer has pleaded guilty to depriving a handcuffed man of his civil rights by using a stun gun.

Prosecutors said 31-year-old Mark E. Thom pleaded guilty Friday. Plea documents said Thom beat and used a stun gun on a handcuffed man in Dec. 2011.

Honestly the taser has done nothing but aid in the use of excessive force by lazy police officers.  As usual the department drug its feet letting the criminal resign to save face.  Unsurprisingly, there is also a previous history of corruption with this officer too.

State Sponsored Criminal #542: Mark E. Thom

Because by all means when someone’s handcuffed use a taser on them.  Nothing says do as I say like interrupting their central nervous system.

    I don’t understand how you can do that to another human being… I mean tasers aren’t exactly a ray of sunshine and a martini, and the guy was already restrained and you can’t exactly run when you’re handcuffed. This cop needs therapy.

      There’s a lot I’ve been trying to understand how anyone can do that to another. Most disturbing is that cops always seem to get a free pass with the excuse being “their job is dangerous.”
