Legless Man Tasered in Merced

September 22, 2009

From the FresnoBee:

 

“Gregory Williams, 40, a double-leg amputee, spent six days in jail on suspicion of domestic violence and resisting arrest after the Sept. 11 incident. Merced County District Attorney Larry Morse II said there wasn’t enough evidence to file charges, however.”

 

“Williams says he was publicly humiliated after his pants fell down during the incident. The officers allegedly left him outdoors in daylight, handcuffed on the pavement, nude below the waist. Williams said the arrest also left him with an injured shoulder, limiting his mobility in his wheelchair.”

According to the report, the two cops are still on duty.  It’s worth remarking: He was an unarmed, wheel-chair bound man.  What physical threat could he have posed to the cops?  Tasers must go!
