    Police officers from two Chicago suburbs are being sued after one of them allegedly Tasered a man having a diabetic seizure because the diabetic involuntarily hit the officer while being taken to an ambulance.

    Prospero Lassi, a 40-year-old employee of Southwest Airlines, filed the lawsuit (PDF) with a federal court in Chicago last week, following an April 9, 2009, incident in which Lassi was taken to hospital following a violent diabetic seizure -- and being Tasered 11 times while unconscious.

    First aid?
    The lack of cheap easily accessible defibrillator devices is a serious problem .

    So at this point, no one can defend the cops. Good. This is just crazy.

    Sheesh! What were the EMTs doing while these two idiots were torturing their patient? They should have insisted on remaining in control of what was clearly a medical situation.
