This story is terrible.  The guardians of a 10-year old boy have brought suit after the pre-teen was tasered by New Mexico police, after saying he did not want to clean the police officer’s car.

10-Year Old Boy Tasered by Police

The events happened at Tularosa Intermediate School, at the Career Day event held by the school.  The officer in question was Christopher Webb, who asked students whether they would clean his cop car; the boy in question joked that he did not.  The officer apparently said, “Let me show you what happens when you don’t listen to the police,”  pointed the taser gun at him and fired two barbs into the boy’s chest, and tasered him with 50,000 volts.   According to the lawsuit incident, the boy has been traumatized by the incident,  waking up in the middle of the night holding his chest, and reporting afraid he is never going to wake up again.

Officer Webb was given three (3) days of suspension.
