From KWCH: Hearing Impaired Man Tasered by Police
You know it’s big news when it makes the Drudge Report. I’m still not sure what to say to this. I don’t know all the details. I don’t know enough to know how harmful tasers are. At one point, I believe the deaf man disappeared and then reappeared which would’ve made police nervous. Then again, he was also wearing nothing but a towel.
I think over all the public relations as a result of this incident has been good. The police are meeting with deaf community members. They’re talking about it in a calm manner. It sounds like they’re trying to make changes to keep it from happening again. Of course, one wishes that they did this before the event took place. But for such an awful event, the end results seem to be positive. I hope it continues to be that way for both sides.
