A mother in Pennsylvania is threatening to sue after officers shocked her 14-year-old son in the face with a Taser while he was handcuffed.
“What he did was wrong,” she admitted. “He was coerced by a 19-year-old. He does know better.”
According to Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler, Tullytown officers fired a Taser and hit the boy in the face when he escaped from their police cruiser and began to flee. The district attorney asserted that the 14-year-old was not able to stop his face from hitting the pavement because he was handcuffed, causing the bruising seen in the photos.
Heckler said that the officers were forced to use the Taser on the child because they were “fearing for his safety,” WCAU reported.
