The suspect was not tased by officers, he was tased by Chief Battle. Funny how he leaves that out of his press release. So let me get this right... battle is the incident commander.. why is he tasing suspects when he is supposed to be overseeing the operation? Is it because he is such a control freak that he has no confidence in his officers and has to do everything himself? Since he tased someone, who determines whether this was an appropriate use of force? Town Manager? The suspect was unarmed so why was he tased? See http://www.ca4.uscourts.gov/Opinions/Published/151191.P.pdf
which is a court case that deals with tasing individuals.
Hopefully, battle will be transparent and make the body cam video of this incident available to the public.
Now lets see if he puts together another dog and pony show by shutting down court square when the suspect has his court case heard just like when the pharmacy murderer appeared in court last summer. That was a slap in the face to Mosier who is responsible for court security, not the town police.
