"They tortured him"; police used Taser on special needs teen for breaking window before shooting him

Thurau's nationwide examination of decades of lawsuits involving Tasers, also called "Conducted Electrical Weapons," found the devices were used on a disproportionate number of children of color and children with disabilities.

Washington says her son fits that description and attends a specialized school.

"A 14-year-old. A special needs 14-year-old, who has disorders, who do not understand what is going on," she said.

I’m naming and shaming these psychotic shit bags.

Officer Seth Brown tasered a 14 year old special needs child for allegedly breaking a window. Sergeant Scott Langan then attempted to murder the running child by shooting him in the back with a handgun.
