    Diabetic Teen Hit with Taser after Crash

    SOURCE

    Reminds me of when my father had an accident because he had a stroke while driving. Instead of getting medical treatment, he was arrested for DUI and put in jail.

    Forty years later, and the cops are still as dumb as a brick of number two.

    Someone having a diabetic emergency can easily appear to be under the influence. Plus, if he did not have an emergency alert bracelet, that would make it that much harder to determine that this was a medical emergency.

    As for his Dad, 40 years ago the signs and symptoms of a stroke were not as well known as they are now. So, his behavior after having the stoke could very well have resembled that of someone who was DUI.

    I agree he should have been wearing an emergency alert bracelet.

    Like a cop is going to take the time to look for a medical bracelet. It seems he did not take the time to do anything but jump to the conclusion that he was dealing with someone who was resisting or willfully ignoring the officers commands to exit the car. The officer needs to be retrained in basic first aid......

    Can someone explain to me why not getting out of a car is cause for getting tased?

    If the cop thought he was drunk, does that mean it's ok to tase a drunk?

    Those cops have too much attitude and too little brains.

    If they do these things automatically because they think they might be in danger, they need a little more nerve, too.
