Ouch! Brit cops hit Colin Farmer with stun gun, thought blind man’s cane was a Samurai Sword
Who is it that’s blind, exactly??
Officers were responding to “a number of reports that a man was walking through Chorley armed with a samurai sword”, when they confronted Colin Farmer, who was on his way to meet friends in a pub last Friday, in the northern English town.
When Farmer, 61, did not respond to their calls to stop, one of the officers used his taser stun gun, which delivers a 50,000 volt shock.”
I certainly didnt know they were police – and I certainly didnt know they were shouting at me. I thought I was going to be attacked by some hooligans,” Farmer told the Lancashire Evening Post newspaper.
Despite pleading with the police and telling them he was blind, he was handcuffed.
