These fine officers deserve a raise and I'm sure they will get it, you can't have seizures like that. They should sue him for having a heart attack in front of them.

Two Texan police officers are being sued for using a Taser to shock a man who was having a seizure, causing the 50-year-old to suffer a heart attack and permanent brain damage.
Scott Sheeley filed a federal complaint last week in Austin, TX, requesting a jury trial against two police officer who shocked him with a Taser. In May, Sheeley unsuccessfully asked for a settlement of at least $1.5 million to cover the costs of medical fees, attorneys and emotional damages.

The case involves a police response to a 911 phone call last November. Police responded to a request for medical assistance for Sheeley, who was suffering a seizure at his home in Austin. When officers Chard Norman and Kevin Sederquest arrived at the man’s house, they allegedly used violence to restrict him from movement, constrained his ability to breathe and repeatedly shocked him with a Taser gun.

The officers controlled the man by “pushing a knee on his back while he was in handcuffs, causing his head to be pressed against the back cushion of the chair, all while he was still convulsing,” the brother of the victim, Dustin Sheeley wrote in a complaint against the state.
Police continued to Taser the man, even after the brother told them not to, and even after the convulsing man was handcuffed. The 50-year-old was left with wounds on his shoulder, back and under his left armpit.

When paramedics arrived, Sheeley was injected with Haldol and Ativan – drugs which are used to control psychotic disorders and anxiety and which can also cause seizures and sudden death, the plaintiff said. The victim then had a heart attack.

“As a result of being improperly restrained, in particular after concurrently having received Ativan and Haldol, the plaintiff suffered respiratory arrest and ceased breathing… As a result of the respiratory arrest, plaintiff suffered cardiac arrest,” reads the formal complaint against the officers.

It took paramedics 11 minutes to revive the man and bring back his pulse.
Sheeley says he suffers and continues to suffer from respiratory arrest, cardiac arrest, loss of heartbeat, loss of oxygen, Taser wounds to the torso, abrasions to knees and elbows, brain injury, loss of vision, headaches, broken ribs, physical pain, continued seizure and severe emotional anguish.

The man claims the police violated his Constitutional rights under the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments.

“Mr. Sheely’s injuries were severe and impact him daily,” defense attorney Leslie Lienemann wrote in the complaint. “He is still receiving medical care for a number of medical symptoms and will continue to do so.”


When in doubt, shock the slave and give them a heart attack.

Collecting stories of police brutality and misbehavior and posting them on wackbag is Kirk's contribution in the fight to bring down the globalists. It's the way Kirk makes himself feel important and special. He's been doing it for like 7 years now. It's his life's work and his special purpose.

I know... quite sad and pathetic.

Why the hate on Cops, Kirk? Do you hate Motorhead, a fine police officer on this very board?
No I don't like a system that allows bad cops to keep their job and a system that punishes the tax payers for the actions of bad cops and a system that protects state workers from getting jail time for doing something that would get a non state worker jail time.

Ever wonder how it went from a call for medical assistance to handufing and tasing the guy? That's a whole mess of story missing.

You've been waging your "not liking the system" campaign from your basement for what? 7 years now? How many more years you figure before you start seeing some real results?

Were you planning on doing something about it, or just doing your piss/moan dance for our enjoyment?

I doubt anyone is thrilled with that. Problem is, your stories always seem
a tad 1 sided. It's tough to condemn anybody when you only get 1 side of the
story. That's why we have courts. So both parties get to tell their version.

Did it occur to you that the cops might have wanted to see if he could pass through walls?

He gets his news from anti-cop websites that leave gaping holes in the stories. It's his thing.
Still that gaping hole would have to contain on hell of a plot twist to explain responding to a gentleman having a seizure to tazing a gentleman having a seizure.

Ummm ativan actually is used to help stop seizures...it is basically Reallly good Valium. You wouldn't get a heart attack from Ativan. now respiratory arrest..maybe. I don't see Haldol being used in the field. If it was it, it might cause tachycardic rhythm but not cause a heart attack...not unless they dumped a massive amount of Haldol in the patient.

Haldol is used I.M. the hosp. quite a bit when your finally done with their shenanigans. I'm personally a fan of the I.M. Haldol, Ativan, Cogentin cocktail. Stick it thier tushy, takes the fight right out of them then the sweet, sweet Haldol doesn't even peak for about five days with a half life of about three fucking weeks thereafter. See ya in about a month fucko'.

Yeah..that's not on any list I can find for paramedic use in the field. That's a hospital drug.

The "reporter" who wrote the story Kirk found at www.FuckThePo-lice.com seems to have overlooked a little detail from the court documents. An innocent oversight I'm sure.

http://postbulletin.com/news/stories/display.php?id=1510671

According to the court documents, Sheeley suffered a seizure in the basement of his Austin home on Nov. 16, and his brother called 911. Responding officers and medical personnel said they found Sheeley "out of control, combative and assaulting his brother" — a description disputed in the 19-page lawsuit.

sure they did an does the brother back up that story?
Irrelevant. It's an important detail that is included in the official court record and it was conspicuously omitted in the article you cited. That is a clear indication that the source you cited is biased and has an anti-police agenda.

Are you interested in pushing a biased agenda, Kirk? Or are you interested in "the truth"?

Truth so what does the brother say? I still see no reason to shock a seizure victim just because they are having an argument with their brother.
