STEWART COUNTY, Ga. — Janice Wells called the Richland Police Department when she feared a prowler was outside her clapboard house in the rural west Georgia town on April 26.

The third-grade teacher had phoned for help. But within minutes of an officer coming to her back door, she was screaming in pain and begging not to be shocked again with a Taser. With each scream and cry, the officer threatened her with more shocks.
