The MailOnline has a story that is unbelievable. A policeman tasered a 10 year old boy for failing to do what he was told after refusing to clean officer’s car at careers day. He was hit with 50,000 volts of electricity! The report said that he now has post-traumatic stress syndrome.
A police officer has appeared in court after it is alleged he used his Taser gun on a 10-year-old schoolboy who refused to clean his patrol car.
Officer Chris Webb is accused of saying to the boy he would be shown ‘what happens to people who do not listen to police’ during the event at Tularosa Intermediate School in New Mexico.
He is then reported to have fired the 50,000-volt weapon at the boy.
Rachel Higgins, legal representative for the seven-stone boy, known only as RD, told Santa Fe County Court he had been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder since the incident on May 4.
According to the complaint filed on behalf of the boy: ‘Defendant Webb asked the boy, RD, in a group of boys, who would like to clean his patrol unit.
‘A number of boys said that they would. RD, joking, said that he did not want to clean the patrol unit.’
Webb is accused of responding by aiming his Taser at the child before saying: ‘Let me show you what happens to people who do not listen to the police.’ He then allegedly stunned RD.
The complaint continued: ‘Instead of calling emergency medical personnel, Officer Webb pulled out the barbs and took the boy to the school principal’s office.’ …
How many stories like this one will it take to convince Americans that the empire and its uniformed goons are out of control? How long before everyone realizes that private firms providing legal and police services in a government free environment would be much better than the mess we have now?
People often ask me how in the world I can support a Rothbardian market anarchy. They claim “gangs would take over and terrorize us!” Well, we have a gang in blue uniforms terrorizing us now! If we had many competing firms offering police services then it would be much more efficient and much, much more humane.
Jeff Berwick wrote an essay called “Call the Cops at Your Own Risk” where he explains how dangerous the police are even to the most law abiding citizens.
The police do not consider their job to protect you. They used to at least pay lip service to “keeping the peace”, but nowadays in the USSA it is clear their job is to enforce the law. In fasco-communist America, the law stopped being about your protection decades ago. The law is about the expansion of state power and control. That’s why there are so many of them, with more coming all the time.
It is high time we start telling our kids that the policeman is not your friend. And while you are at it, tell the children that the government is not your friend. The government is not “us” but it is rulers who are concerned only with getting ever more power over us.
