A North Wales Police spokesman said: “During a confrontation with officers a Taser was discharged and the man fell sustaining a head injury.

“He was treated by officers and paramedics at the scene and taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor.

“Unfortunately his condition deteriorated during the night and he is currently being treated in hospital in Stoke.

“North Wales Police have voluntarily referred the incident to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.”
Should the officers attending had handled things in a more controlled fashion instead of piling in? yes

This is stereo typical of how North Wales Police handle difficult situations, it is possible this young man could die due to injury’s sustained after being shot with a taser by a trigger happy North Wales Police Officer, lets hope they never get issued with real guns.

  1. I wonder if they were wearing their body cameras, it wouldn’t surprise me if they were conveniently ‘switched off’ at the time? Better still, we learn that all the information was lost in a freak wave of electromagnetic radiation due to the earths axial tilt being aligned perfectly with the equatorial solar plane or something like that, though I prefer this third scenario where the officer responsible is a mason. You can make up the rest yourself.

  2. A bit of over reaction on behalf of the Police maybe? Tazers need to be banned and Police need to be taught unarmed combat as they were in the past. They also have a nice weapon in their baton and used wisely most situations can be dealt with, efficiently and effectively. Hope the chap injured makes a full recovery.
