Cop Uses Taser Gun on 10-Year-Old Boy on Career Day
A police officer from Albuquerque is now in the hot seat for allegedly stunning a 10-year-old boy with a Taser after the boy refused to wash his car.
Officer Christopher Webb was at an elementary school career day. After his brief presentation, he asked the kids if they wanted to wash his patrol car. One of the boys refused, and Webb pointed the taser at him.
“Let me show you what happens to people who do not listen to the police,” Webb said.
The Taser discharged, and the boy blacked out after being hit with over 50,000 volts of electricity.
A lawsuit filed by the boy’s family now claims that the boy, known as R.D. suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. His attorney claims that the boy has “woken up in the middle of the night holding his chest, afraid he is never going to wake up again.”
Webb explained that the Taser accidentally discharged, and he wasn’t aware that it was loaded. He was suspended for three days without pay.
