Missouri Police taser injured boy 19 timesDavid Edwards and Diane Sweet
Published: Saturday July 26, 2008



KY 3 News' Sara Sheffield reports on an injured teen from Ozark, Missouri who was tasered up to 19 times by police.

Passing motorists called Ozark police out of concern for the teen as he walked along the busy overpass. When the police arrived, the young man was lying on the shoulder of the highway directly underneath the 30 foot high overpass with a broken back and foot.

Doctors believe 16-year-old Mace Hutchinson broke his back and heel after falling, as his injuries are consistent with such a fall. The boy's family does not understand why police would have tasered the the teen 19 times after he was so seriously injured.

The teen's father said that the use of the taser caused Mace to develop an elevated white blood cell count, leading to a fever that delayed the young man's otherwise immediate surgery by two days.

Ozark Police Capt. Thomas Rousset attempted to explain why the taser was used:

"He refused to comply with the officers and so the officers had to deploy their Tasers in order to subdue him. He is making incoherent statements; he's also making statements such as, 'Shoot cops, kill cops,' things like that. So there was cause for concern to the officers."

Ozark police say that while there remains unanswered questions in the case, the reason for the use of the Taser is not one of them.

This video is from KY3 News, broadcast July 24, 2008.

i guess the officers might not have been able to evaluate his medical condition. would it have been apparent his back was broken or did he look like a nut laying there babbling to himself?

so i could see one tazing or something. but 19?

Wow. There's a whole lot about this deal that doesn't make sense.

With any luck, somebody was filming this encounter. For example, I can't see how a guy is "unsubdueable" after say ... 5 tazerings. Even if he's whacked out on something like PCP or PVC or PEZ. 5 tazerings does a body good. I have a feeling they were using him for target practice.

There are degrees of broken back. I doubt if he was laying on the ground with a severed spine protruding.

Probably more likely he was high on something really nasty and moving around raising hell in spite of the broken back.

I'm not one to generally defend cops, and 19 times with the taser certainly sounds extreme. But keep in mind, a few years ago he'd have been beaten with nightsticks or shot.

according to this link: http://www.ky3.com/home/video/25829234.html


By the time officers arrived, the teen was off the 30-foot overpass, lying on the shoulder below along U.S. 65, with no good explanation as to how he got there.


“They tested his system. He was clean of drugs and alcohol. We don't know why unless just being in shock and the whole thing in itself caused him to forget everything,” said Hutchinson.

Kid: Mace!

Cops: Seriously, what's your name?

Kid: Mace, dammit!

When they arrive, he's 30 feet below, with a broken back and heel.

Actually, Mr. frazod, I do see your point. Unquestionably, in these more civilized times, those who protect and serve us are using less violent means to do so. Shooting a guy who just broke his back after falling from an overpass just doesn't seem right.

Missed that part. Who knows what he did or why? But it seems clear that if he'd simply said "help me, I'm hurt," he wouldn't have gotten tased once, let alone 19 times.

Can you begin to imagine how much those tazes must have hurt with a broken back? All of that involuntary twitching probably wreaked havoc on his broken back. They better hope he doesn't lose functionality of his limbs they might have a hard time proving they didn't cause it with the tasers.

There aren't any cops in my family, dickbag. Typically my cop experience is getting speeding tickets. I view the bulk of them as state-sanctioned thieves. Happy now?

My point is that unless these are the worst cops on earth, they aren't going to taser some kid with a broken back over and over for kicks on a Saturday night.

I do like to know the facts before I instantly condemn somebody. I'm funny that way.

The MMO (Mobile Microwave Oven) is a converted police cruiser trunk into which officers can place a suspect and set it to medium for suspected medium crimes and high for suspected high crimes. Low is reserved for things like drying uniforms and frozen dinners.
