Tazing the Mentally Ill

Tazing, I think is pretty common. I remember the first time I was in the Victoria jail…and I was in a solitary cell where some 'trouble' women were kept. Most seemed to be mental illness cases...anyhow, one woman that was clearly mental ill was drug out one night by about 10 guards and dragged, screaming, to the "chair"- where they get tazed. She was gone a long time, then brought back around the early morning, a whimpering mass of jelly. I saw this also when I was being processed in Harris County jail one time and one man caused some minor trouble being processed and they drug him off and he got tazed too. He came back crying. A tough man too. -Prisoner, Texas County Jails, Harris and Victoria
