Donnell Williams had just gotten out of the bath tub, wearing only a towel around his waist, when he turned the corner to see guns pointing right at him.
"I ain't never been so scared," says Williams.
Police forced entry into Williams home while responding to a shooting, but it turned out to be a false call. They had no idea at the time the call wasn't real and that Williams is hearing impaired. Without his hearing aid he is basically deaf.
"I kept going to my ear yelling that I was scared. I can't hear! I can't hear!"
Officers were worried about their own safety because at the time it appeared Williams was refusing to obey their commands to show his hands. That's when they shot him with a Taser.
Deaf man doesn't do what you say? Tase him!
And there are many more tasing incidents that I'm just too disgusted to cover. Like the handcuffed woman in the police station who got tased simply for not complying with some instruction. See? It's not to enable the cops to safely subdue someone. It's to force compliance at the threat of pain.
Remember: If you allow someone to place a pair of handcuffs on you, you will be tortured.
But PPU USov is designed to be the gold standard of PPUs. We'd hire the best while these Wichita cops would be working Wal-Mart where they belong. (It takes a special breed to fear for one's safety in the presence of a naked man.)
