yeah, babies bounce...they also get head trauma....what a idiotic comment to make.
In a confrontation captured on videotape, a hospital security guard fired a stun gun to stop a defiant father from taking home his newborn, sending
both man and child crashing to the floor.
this criminologist is worried about the baby possibly NOT bouncing
"I've got to wonder what kind of moron would Tase an adult holding a baby," said George Kirkham, a former police officer and criminologist at
Florida State University. "It doesn't take rocket science to realize the baby is going to fall."
did you read this next part?
Lewis, 30, said the April 13 episode began after he and his wife felt mistreated by staff at the Woman's Hospital of Texas and they decided to
leave. Hospital employees told him doctors would not allow it, but Lewis picked up the baby and strode to a bank of elevators.
^^^they wanted to leave the hospital....whats the problem? didn't know you could be forced to stay against your will
It was not clear whether the baby received any electrical jolt.
Child Protective Services has custody of the baby because of a history of domestic violence between Lewis and his wife, Jacqueline Gray
^^^and this is why you possibly defend the cops? what kind of history? one incident? 25 incidents? what does that have to do with them wanting to take
their child home?...
Within 40 seconds of arriving, Boling is holding the Taser.
^^^thats not a very long time for him to whip out the juice
"My wife said `we want to leave' and then he just Tasered me," Lewis said. "He caused me to drop the child."
^^^^WE want to leave
this is the best part though
In a statement, the hospital said Lewis was hostile and uncooperative toward staff members who were trying to find out his relationship to the infant
when they saw him trying to leave. Neither Lewis or Gray had indicated they wanted a discharge, according to the statement.
"Mr. Lewis became verbally abusive by using vulgar expletives. When Mr. Lewis' behavior became threatening, endangering the infant and employees,
licensed law enforcement officers followed their professional standards to protect those involved," the statement said.
^^^^^^i would have became verbally abusive too. what kind of behavior was putting th ebaby in jeopardy?
certainly tazing a man while holding the kid is putting the kid in danger.
i can't stand when people try to defend the fuzz in these instances.
