Imagine seeing the world through the eyes of taser-happy cops. Via the BBC:
Colin Farmer, 61, was [tasered] by police following reports of a man walking through Chorley with a samurai sword. One of the officers who arrived in Chorley believed he had located the offender.
Mr Farmer, who has suffered two strokes, said he thought he was being attacked by thugs. He was walking to a pub to meet friends on Friday when the officer fired the Taser. It forced him to drop his stick and he fell to the ground, he said. He said the experience had left him “shaking like a leaf” and scared to go outside.
A Lancashire Police spokesman said the incident was being investigated and the officer’s Taser had been withdrawn.
