Cop Tasers 10-Year-Old

November 1, 2012

The Court House News Service released a story yesterday about a New Mexico state policeman tasering a ten-year-old boy.

In our present state of cultural decline, it is not hard to imagine a scenario where a cop would be doing a child this age a favor. If the child had a handgun, for example, and the cop had no choice, he would be acting heroically to use a taser and try to stop the boy while minimizing his injury.

But, according to the lawsuit being filed against the state policeman that is not what happened.

Instead of a place where a cop might fear violence, this incident is alleged to have happened on the school playground, according to a lawsuit filed on the boy’s behalf. It was career day at Tularosa New Mexico Intermediate School. Officer Chris Webb asked a group of boys which one of them would like to clean his car. When the ten-year-old boy, who weighted less than a hundred pounds, said he didn’t want to clean the policeman’s car, Webb pulled out his taser and pointed it at the boy. “Let me show you what happens to people who do not listen to the police,” he said. Then Webb fired his taser.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    Americans should fear being harmed by police. Increasingly there are published stories of police shooting unarmed Citizens; even shooting (without cause” a family’s dog. It appears some police (get off) killing the family pet.

    Last October 4th The New York Times reported “Police Fatally Shoot an Unarmed Driver on the Grand Central Parkway.” According to the story, witnesses allegedly reported that a New York police detective pulled-over a National Guardsman, Noel Polanco for cutting off two police trucks on the Grand Central Parkway in Queens. The detective shot and killed the driver while his hands were on the steering wheel of his Honda. No weapon was found. Apparently officers “swarmed” the car, yelled for the three people inside the car to put their hands up, but the driver, Noel Polanco whose hands were still on the steering wheel—had no time to comply was shot. According to the NYT Story, police involved in the shooting did not immediately provide an explanation for shooting the unarmed driver; police later made incidental mention of finding a power drill on the floor of the driver’s car. You may Access this New York Times Story below. Note this NYT Story may have updated since 10-5-12.

    Other Shooting Victims: The following are police explanations extracted from news reports why police…shot unarmed Citizens. It would appear under broad guidelines of many cities and states, police may claim—almost any imagined or actual physical act or non-compliance by a stopped individual—posed an imminent threat to an officer(s)’ life to warrant killing them. For example this can happen to anyone: Police within two or three seconds give conflicting orders confusing a suspect—police shoot the suspect stating suspect did not respond. A stopped suspect may be shot no matter how hard suspect tries to comply. Police in banana republics have been reported purposely giving stopped suspects conflicting commands so police can shoot them; it is often not possible to determine if police were executing a lawful stop or planned assassination. In Northern Ireland during the 1990’s it was reported that British Soldiers waved persons though checkpoints then machine-gunned them claiming they failed to stop.

    If pulled-over by U.S. police, reaching toward your glove compartment for your registration after the officer asks for it, could justify police shooting you. Police can simply claim you reached without the officer’s permission—that the officer feared for his life. Recently it was reported after police pulled over an unarmed driver, police shot the driver dead because they allegedly feared the vehicle could assault them despite the vehicle’s engine was turned off. Another report stated that after two police cars pulled over an unarmed driver (after police wedged in the driver’s car) so it could not go anywhere, police shot the driver because they allegedly feared being assaulted by the vehicle. If pulled over by police, be sure to park your vehicle at an angle that police can’t easily claim posed an opportunity to threaten an officer’s life.

    Federal Government has been militarizing, training local police to act like soldiers, not community police. U.S. Government intends to establish a National Police Force that will include (armed forces’ personnel) with state and local police. That is against the Constitution. Expect more shootings of unarmed Civilians and family pets, consistent with increased military involvement in local and state police.
