I’m not normally one for criticising the police, I think they do a good job under increasingly difficult conditions. However, it would appear that the police in Lancashire could do with sending some of their officers for eye tests, or common sense tests. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read the story about a blind stroke victim being tasered by the policeman who mistook the man’s white stick for a samurai sword. Easy mistake to make I suppose – if you’re a moron. I can’t imagine the terror this poor man must have felt. Read the whole story here.
