Blind Man Tasered By Greater Manchester Police Officers Who ‘Mistook Cane For Gun’

Post by Thorin on Sat Feb 25, 2017 9:33 am

A blind man has been Tasered by police after his cane was mistaken for a gun. Greater Manchester Police (GMP) were called to reports of a man with a gun on Albert Road, Levenshulme, shortly after 6.40pm on Thursday. A force spokesman said: “Armed response officers attended and a Taser was deployed. A 43-year-old man was detained.

“Officers later discovered the man was in possession of a folding cane and he was subsequently released.”

True to form...

One day they might actually catch a real criminal...

Rather than attacking random blind men,  cripples,  foreign students,  wrong coloured folks,  or people who look, talk or walk funny..

These fold up sticks don't look like guns. The police are too quick to taser innocents. It's happening lots. This practice must stop unless they are sure someone is a threat, it's obviously not working.
