LAPD TASER incident has chief seeking to fire 4

The officers reported the woman kicked one officer so hard he lost balance, prompting his reaction


U.P.I.

LOS ANGELES — Police Chief Charlie Beck is seeking the dismissal of four officers seen laughing on video after one of them used a Taser on a handcuffed woman.

The officers were suspended until August after the December 2010 incident, in which officer Jorge Santander can be seen on video using a Taser twice — without warning — against the torso of a restrained woman who resisted getting into his patrol car after arrest, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.
