Our Police force are thoroughly out of control. Another blind man has been tasered when the police mistook his cane for a gun.This follows another incident in incident when the Police tasered a blind man in 2012 when the ploce tasered a man when they mistook his cane for a Samurai sword. you may also remeber the tasering of the elderly ex head of the Bristol Police Community Cttee as he was perfectly lawfully trying to enter his house recently.The appointment of Cressida Dick as head of the Met means that a culture of gross incompetece, rather than being condemned, is it seems, rewarded and celebrated by our government and our Police force.

Maybe we should be thinking about labelling them, with like signs or flags as let's face it, sunglasses nowadays everbody has. It would make it easier to identify who's normal and who isn't. Because I do sometimes fear of being smacked in the shin

I'm not sure that incorrectly tasering two people in 5 years make a case that thr police are out of control.....

Yes,good idea, I do think that that Police with tasers should be made to wear a flag on their helmets to identify how dangerous they and,so that we know that they are not "normal".

60 million people is it in this country? And 3 or 4 people get incorrectly tasted? Get real. Stop talking inflammatory crap. We need protecting. Lot of bad people out there that may well need stopping in there tracks.

@Cane. Agreed. This could be written as ' number of blind people tapered doubles in 5 years'. Don't think I'm going get to worried about this. Seems the police round here are more 'out to lunch' than 'out of control '.

Ill-educated, ill-trained, undisciplined trigger happy tattood thugs. I'm so proud of our modern police force.

When the police first got tasers they were to be used by trained firearms officers, in place of firearms. 'Police shot partially-sighted man because he needs a white stick' doesn't sound too good, does it.
