A Florida police officer, 267-pound Trooper Daniel Cole, was recently cleared of any wrongdoing by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Questions were raised when he tasered a 20 year old handcuffed girl in the back as she fled.
The encounter took place last September at the FHP Pinellas Park Substation. As Maudsley fled, the tasering prevented her from catching herself as her muscles involuntarily seized up. As a result, she fell to the concrete, and bashed her head. She suffered severe brain damage and has been in a persistent vegetative state ever since until she died last month.
What do you think? Abuse of power? Of course it is! He wanted to dish out punishment and that was the end all say all of the situation. For whatever reason, he wanted to hurt that girl. He weighs 267 pounds,sheweighs 100 lbs. She was no threat to him all he had to do was chase her down. He was pissed because she made him run which we all know is har for some cops to do. So he got pissed and tasered her. Did he mean to kill her? No. But that is what happened and he deserves to take responsibility for it and the punishment. All police should do that, your suppose to protect and serve, not taser people because your too lazy to run. I’m sure he feels remorse for what happened but to me and im sure her mother, that is not enough.
