Teen With Broken Back Tasered 19 Times for Not Standing Up When Ordered

This time it's a white 16 year old male teenager who suffered a broken back after a thirty foot fall in Ozark, Missouri. When police arrived the boy was incoherent and refused to get up when ordered to do so, so police tasered him 19 fucking times! I bet that'll teach him some respect for law enforcement officers:


OZARK, Mo. -- A family wants answers about what happened to their son that left him hospitalized. Early Saturday morning, police found Mace Hutchinson, 16, underneath the Highway F overpass over U.S. 65. [...]
By the time officers arrived, the teen was off the 30-foot overpass, lying on the shoulder below along U.S. 65, with no good explanation as to how he got there.
"According to the doctors, all injuries are consistent with a fall," said his aunt, Samantha.
"They tested his system. He was clean of drugs and alcohol. We don't know why unless just being in shock and the whole thing in itself caused him to forget everything," said Hutchinson.
