Let me show you what happens to people who do not listen to the police.New Mexican Law Enforcer Christopher Webb, moments before “accidentally" discharging two steel barbs into, and shocking, a 9 year old government elementary school student who said that "he did not want to clean the [agent's] patrol unit."
The Smoking Gun has the story and the official documents from Tularosa, NM:
Webb reportedly asked a group of students who would like to clean his patrol unit. While a group of boys said they would, the victim–identified as “R.D.” by his lawyers–“jokingly said that he did not want to clean the patrol unit,” according to a Santa Fe District Court lawsuit.
In response, Webb allegedly pointed his taser at the boy and said, “Let me show you what happens to people who do not listen to the police.” The 44-year-old cop then fired his Taser X26 model.
According to a Department of Public Safety (DPS) report, Webb, a member of the state’s Motor Transportation Police Division, removed his taser from its holster “to display it for attendees.” Once the weapon was “out of the holster, he pulled the trigger and the probes from this less-lethal weapon struck a 10 year old male subject in his chest.”
Law Enforcer Webb was suspended for three days because of his actions before being allowed back on the job. The boy’s mother is suing Webb and the New Mexico Department of, ahem, Safety.
