Police taser dementia patient10th May 2012
The Alzheimer’s Society has branded the tasering of a dementia sufferer by police as “alarming” and showed a lack of understanding of the condition in society.
A report by Humberside Police Authority revealed that the 59-year-old farmer was shot with a stun gun after he became violent. It emerged that the man, who was suffering from a rapid onset of Alzheimer’s disease at the time, had to be physically restrained by two policemen until more officers arrived on the scene.
