Police use Taser on 10-year-old at school career day, lawsuit alleges By Ron Recinto | The Lookout – 11 hrs ago An Albuquerque, N.M., police officer stunned a 10-year-old boy with a Taser after he refused to wash the officer’s car.
Officer Christopher Webb was visiting the boy’s elementary school for a career day on May 4 when the incident occurred. During the presentation, Webb asked a group of students if they wanted to wash his patrol car. When the boy, identified as R. D. jokingly refused, Webb pointed the stun gun at him and said, “Let me show you what happens to people who do not listen to the police. ” Then R.
D. , who weighs about 100 pounds, was hit in the chest with two barbs and 50,000 volts of electricity. Webb told the Albuquerque Journal the Taser was accidentally discharged. The boy blacked out. The officer removed the barbs, which left marks that “looked like cigarette burns” on R. D. ‘s chest, the lawsuit alleges. The lawsuit claims Webb acted in a “reckless manner. ” R. D. , who now suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, has “woken up in the middle of the night holding his chest, afraid he is never going to wake up again. Webb was suspended for three days without pay, the Albuquerque Journal reports.
He did not return calls from the newspaper seeking a comment. * My personal opinion on this is that this cop, however the situation he might have found himself, had no right to tell that little boy that. He might have been just joking but after that little incident kids are going to be afraid of cops. Which is a growing issue since everyone puts a bad image on cops. For example a little kid does something wrong and his mother tells him I’m going to tell the cops to come and get you. They grow up thinking cops are bad when in reality they’re there to help us. How are those kids going to feel about cops now?
These types of reckless people are the ones who affect the image of a good organization. * This is world related in that these types of incidents…well I suppose I already answered that in my first answer and this has really been all over the world people are scared of the police when they shouldn’t be. * This relates to me because I remember how my parents would tell me things that if I was bad the police would take me to jail. Obviously this was never true but I thought for the longest time that cops were bad but I grew out of it. The man who sued his wife for birthing an ugly baby By The Week’s Editorial Staff | The Week – 16 hrs ago
Apparently in China, bad genes are grounds for divorce — and six-figure fines The story starts out conventionally enough: Feng, a resident of northern China, met and married a beautiful woman, and they had a baby girl. Feng was “so sure of his own good looks, so crushed by the wrinkly ugly mess that was handed to him in a swaddle, that he decided to sue his wife because the awful looking baby was totally her fault, He won. the wife came clean on her little secret: Before they had met, she had undergone about $100,000 worth of cosmetic surgery in South Korea. “Our daughter was incredibly ugly, to the point where it horrified me. A judge agreed, and ordered the wife to fork over $120,000. The wife obviously has to pay a huge amount of money, and got publicly humiliated in the process, but at least she’s free of an obviously odious husband. * My personal opinion about this article is that if looks is all he cared about then be glad that you are getting a divorce. But it’s too bad that she had to go through all of this to find out what a total self-absorbed jerk her husband is. * This relates to the world in the sense that it’s been proved that beauty all over the world has been taken a bit too far.
People go to extremes to look beautiful or what is now a day’s considered beautiful. They put high standards and expectations on beauty and end up disappointed on the reality. All the magazines and posters and any propaganda shows a fake image of what the people look like. * This relates to me because well not to me but I knew a couple who broke up because the girl really let go of herself and the guy broke up with her. Sad but true, if someone likes you they’re going to like you the way you are. http://news. yahoo. com/man-sued-wife-birthing-ugly-baby-110500995. html
SCIENTISTS IN WALES HAVE BEEN SEWING KITTENS’ EYES SHUT By Matt Shea It seems that Cardiff University have been going to extreme lengths to rebuff the old stereotype that the Welsh love animals more than the Scottish love violence. Their tactic? Conducting a series of experiments in which they sew kitten’s eyes shut from birth. It turns out that they weren’t just doing it for a bit of horribly sadistic fun (who knew? ). Instead, the research is being used to develop a cure for amblyopic—or lazy eye—which impairs the vision of the world’s population and is really distracting when you’re trying to have a conversation with someone who has it. Hello, you monster. What exactly is the goal of this gruesome experiment? Lazy eye affects two to four percent of all children and leads to extremely poor vision, or even clinical blindness in one eye. To date, no treatment is available to restore normal vision in an amblyopic eye after the age of around eight years old, which is the end of the critical period of visual brain development. * Is there not a way to deprive their sight without sewing their eyes shut? No.
The research was done under anesthetic without causing undue distress or discomfort, to the same standard as it would be done by vets, who frequently carry out the same procedure as therapy for eye conditions in cats and dogs. * What happens to the kittens afterwards? As required by the terms of the Home Office license, the cats were humanely killed at the end of the experiment.
