Wrongful Tasering

Remember the incident in January where some blithering idiot of a WPC tasered a Rastafarian who turned out to be on some police race-relations body? She’s been charged with assault:

Avon and Somerset PC Claire Boddie, 47, is set to appear before Taunton magistrates on 14 August.

The force referred itself to the police watchdog after Judah Adunbi, 63, was Tasered in Bristol on 14 January.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) sent evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service, which said it is in the public interest to charge.

I wonder if this would be the case had the fellow she’d tasered not been a minority?

At any rate, I don’t blame her as much as the idiots and diversity culture that gave her a uniform and taser in the first place.

    He’s undoubtedly being a cock, but as I said in my initial post, that’s not a crime no matter how much Plod wishes it was.

  3. In Arkansas a police woman tasered a man who had doused himself in petrol. Reason – She thought he had a lighter and was about to use it.
    The taser did what the spark-plug in your engine does and ignited the fuel/air mixture round the man.
    At least she prevented a suicide.

    They probably assumed that the female officers would play to their strengths, being the calming influence in a confrontation, but they appear to have either selected the wrong type of female officer or that assumption doesn’t succeed where women are competing in a male environment.

    Watch any of those reality cop shows and it’s often the brick-outhouse male cop who is calm & polite while the female is either ineffectual or behaves like one of those little yappy terriers, all hair & aggression, and makes the situation worse.

    Doh!

    He didn’t look to be anywhere close to being an imminent threat to the officers or himself. That woman shouldn’t have been within ten miles of a uniform, let alone a weapon. Completely unsuitable.
