No shyt. This county judge approved decision by Niagra Falls police department to use a taser on Ryan Smith to get a DNA sample that tied him to a shooting and a gas station robbery. Smith was handcuffed and sitting on the floor of Niagara Falls Police Headquarters when the 50,000-volt electronic stun gun was used on him after he insisted he would not give a DNA sample.
Taser International can now market their lethal weapon to police as another way for them to get DNA samples. Forget the old-fashioned options of getting the DNA from discarded bubblegum or soda pop cans. Let's just handcuff the suspect and send 50,000 volts of electricity into their body.
Do you agree with the decision made by this county judge?
