Under no circumstances is it ever okay to fire a weapon, lethal or not, at an unarmed child who is controlling an ATV. This is 15 year old Demond Grimes that was killed.

DISGUSTING!!!!!

"Bessner has been sued in the past for using excessive force. Since 2013, two different civil lawsuits, both involving Tasers, have been filed against the 43-year-old for excessive force."

WTF?!?!?
Why is this maverick still pretending to be a cop?!?!?!

Grimly noted. Hope the murdering coward is criminally charged and prosecuted to the full extent of the law! Thx for sharing Dandelion.

So sad that such a young life has been lost because of the stupidity and arrogance of a police officer.

Horrendous that it was a teenager, but even if it had been a grown man what would possess any sane person to shoot a taser while someone was operating an ATV. I think someone should do a video with all the illegal police shooting victims photos. Showing one person after the other.

I hope we see Besner charged with murder.,Will it happen in a country where black lives don't seem to matter any more?

Jerks like Besner give law enforcement a rotten name. There are plenty of good cops out there, who truly protect and serve - but you hear about only the bad ones, and they make everybody fearful of all police.

Hope third time is the charm for weeding out this bad apple from that law enforcement agency. Thanks for posting Dandelion

I hope so too, what could be worse than killing a child? Why must a death occur to finally rid ourselves of these bad apples.

The attorney indicated the cause of death is still unknown as a second autopsy is still being conducted. “Absolutely mind-boggling stupid” is how Fieger characterized the “drive by shooting” of a “child on an ATV shooting him with a taser”.
In Norway police are told to never take up a high speed pursuit because it's likely to make the situation worse.

when does this murderous violence from policeman finally stop? prosecutors purposely charge policeman with incorrect crime so policeman is not convicted then do not appeal the case.

One would think Jamie. Doesn't seem we have a high intelligence being hired on by the police depts.

Seems like a foolish thing to do, but why was he trying to get the ATV off the road?

Indeed Pam. And now some family must forever grieve the loss of a son. Riding an ATV should not be a death sentence. In particular that the police are trained to know what tasers do and that he'd have loss of control of the machine when hit by this taser.

DEAR GOD I AM SICK Have you noticed how many more of these horrific crimes against the people of color have increased with PRESIDENT DUMB SH___ in office? HATE CRIMES WHEN REPORTED COUNT!

Perhaps the police in the entire country should quit. They do little or nothing when riots break out which are started by the blm and antifa thugs. And that''s Pres. Trump to you, joette. Pres dumb shit left office after 8 yrs of doing nothing.

Good evening and thank you for this article -which I read and noted- IF THAT BAD COP HAD BEEN FIRED AFTER HIS FIRST CRIME AGAINST THE CITIZENS OF THEIR CITY- THEN THIS YOUNG BOY WOULD STILL BE ALIVE- NO ONLY SHOULD THIS BAD COP PAY FINANCIALLY FOR HIS CRIME AGAINST THAT FAMILY AND THE CITIZENS OF THAT CITY- HE SHOULD PAY WITH HIS FREEDOM- ARREST HIM- CHARGE HIM WITH PREMEDITATED MURDER- HE DID IT DELIBERATELY- HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING- HE HAD DONE IT BEFORE -THIS IS HIS THIRD STRIKE - HE SHOULD GO AWAY FOR LIFE -WITH NO CHANCE FOR PARIOLE - it is so sad to see some care 2 commenters -------try to blame this on PRESIDENT OBAMA- when this secret Russian agent orange tic tac- pot us-- trump ---we have in the oval office now --gives permission to bad cops to commit crimes and get away with it- It would be too bad if a cop did this to one of their family members-then maybe they would care---sincerely KAY M.

That the Black Lives Matter and antifa started? Which one was that? How about Charlottesville where the young woman was run over and killed? Who started that one?

Why is it that Joette must call him President Trump but you can call Obama dumb sh*t? Seems we have a one way street here.

They need to raise the IQ requirement for their police. Assuming they have a requirement.
