Unlawful use of force


A Louisiana officer had used a stun gun on a cuffed 67-year-old man for yelling while being detained.

The man who had been tazed is Izell Richardson, who said he had been trying to get into his house through the window because he lost his key. The cops were called by his sister who thought someone was trying to break in.

Upon being placed in the squad car Izell had yelled and was taunted by officer Dehon who told him to “scream again” which was followed by the firing of a stun gun. Richardson had filed a complaint to the department who investigated the situation and arrested officer Dehon. The case is now being viewed by the district attorney.
