Longo Supports Officers’ Actions

Item: ‘Police Chief: I support the actions of my officers’/KHQ

More Info: Both lawsuits occurred in the summer of 2008. The first involves a traffic stop in which now 20-year-old Natalie Reighard claims she was sexually and physically assaulted during a weapons search, performed by Officer Jared Reneau. The second lawsuit also stems from a traffic stop, when DeLoyd Scott was riding by on his bicycle. Officers asked him for ID, which he refused, a scuffle broke out, and Scott was tased seven times. Internal investigations found no illegal activity by officers in either case, and Chief Longo says no officers were disciplined.

Question: When should police officers use their Tasers?
