Police Sodomize Man with Taser

OK, this police taser business has gone way too fraking far. Now, Boise officers put a taser inside a suspect's anus—who was already handcuffed—and fired it. Here's a tape. (Warning: Strong audio violence).

Cop: Do you feel this?

Suspect: Yes, sir.

Cop: Do you feel that? That's my …

Suspect: Okay

Cop: … Taser up your ass.

Suspect: Okay

Cop: So don't move.

Suspect: I'm trying not to. I can't breathe.

Cop: Now do you feel this in your balls?

Suspect: I do, sir. I'm not going to move. I'm not gonna move.

Cop: Now I'm gonna tase your balls if you move again.

(A full minute goes by)

Cop: Okay, I'm gonna take this Taser out of your asshole now. Are you going to fight with me?

Suspect: No, not at all, sir.

Cop: (to another cop) So far, for the last two minutes, he's been cooperative. But then my Taser's in his ass.

Then they placed the taser on his genitals and threatened to do the same. The suspect still had burns inside his right buttock 13 days after the brutal attack. [Idaho Statesmen via Carlos Miller—Thanks GitEmSteveDave]

Diaz,

With all respect, before you place a sensational headline like that you might want to check the facts first.

Let us be clear: no sodomy occurred. Yes, there the threat of placing a taser onto the suspect's genitals and anus but this did not actually occur. The suspect was tased on the buttocks in "drive stun" contact mode - this is not sodomy.

This was a bad situation for the cops and the suspect. The suspect prevented entry of the police officers and there was physical fight that ensued which the police officers believed was needed to make the suspect compliant.

Could the officers have done a better job? Where there mistakes made? Absolutely, but if you have never had to fight a person into submission you don't know how intense it is with the adrenaline pumping - your mindset always has to be that you fight to win, no matter what. This is not an excuse for excessive force - but it is tough to quarterback this event without being there and knowing how it actually felt to be the police officer.

Before you condemn these cops, realize that many of us will never know what they have to go through every time they have to go hands on with a suspect.

Please read the ombudsman's report and draw your own conclusions.
