In another example of indiscriminate use of tasers for minor infractions, a Victoria, Texas officer is under scrutiny for beating and tasering a 76-year-old resident twice over a perceived license tag discrepancy that never actually was.
Pete Vasquez was pulled over on Thursday by a young officer because of his license plate – legal dealer tags that are exempt from inspection.
The officer attempts to snatch Vasquez’s papers away when Vasquez pulled back his arm. That’s when the officer forces him on the hood, then down to the pavement out of view. After tasing, the officer shouts repeatedly “Put your hands behind your back! NOW!”
