Man’s shirt erupts in flames after he is shot with Taser

`Dennis Crouch had already slashed himself. And when he refused to drop his knife, Daytona Beach police Officer Betsy Cassidy decided she had no choice.

Tasers Not Recommended To Subdue Small Children

`Police should not use Taser stun guns to subdue small children, a Miami-Dade grand jury said Thursday.

But it did not propose an outright ban on using stun guns to subdue all minors because some larger children could threaten police regardless of age.

“We are aware that there are 11 and 12-year-olds who are as large as some high school football players and who would create more of a risk to an officer than someone older,” the grand jury said in a final report focusing on law enforcement’s use of stun guns as an alternative to deadly force.’

Deputy Uses Taser to Stop Bullying Goat

`A normally pleasant billy goat turned gruff and, for his troubles, was zapped three times with a Taser gun. Dodge the billy goat snapped a leash and charged at Dawn Pinette, knocking her to the ground Wednesday about 35 miles west of Charleston.

“All I could do was grab his horns and scream bloody murder,” Pinette, 38, said.

Her daughter called police and Colleton County Deputy Jeff Scott arrived to try to help Pinette up. But the goat bullied his way in and the deputy used his Taser.

At first, Pinette thought the goat was dead.

“Within a few seconds he was back up and going after him again,” she said.’

Naked man Tasered in sensitive spot

`Deputies were called to the Holiday Inn on Fort Myers Beach Saturday night after several people reported spotting a naked man cavorting around the building.

Two women said Jeremy Miljour, 26, of Bonita Springs, approached them asking them to “touch him.” [..]

Despite the 50,000 volt shock to the sensitive area, deputies say Miljour continued to attack them. So they sent another 50,000 volts through the probe.

That was apparently too much for Miljour, and he surrendered. He was taken to the hospital to have the probe removed.’
