“Missouri Police Taser injured boy 19 times”

After a fall from an overpass that leaves a kid with a broken back and other injuries, cops apply voltage up to 19 times. The official explanation: “He refused to comply with the officer’s instructions.” According to the police, the kid was making incoherent statements about threatening cops. On the other hand, a police captain on the video tells that their actions were done also to protect the kid, to prevent him from getting into traffic.

Here’s the video by local media and a Raw Story link.
