Video: Police Taser Son Who Tries to Rescue His Father After Police and Fire Department Refuses to Go Into Water

150px-cornwall_waveThe video below reveals another troubling use of a taser. 54-year-old Maurizio Biasini went to a Mendocino Beach called Portuguese Beach with his two twin sons, Dario and Andriano Biasini, and fell into the water. The police and fire department refused to go into the choppy water as the father was swept further and further out to sea. When the sons screamed at the officers for not acting and one tried to go into the water, the police tasered one son twice. The father was lost.

The fire department insisted on waiting for the Coast Guard as the distraught sons demanded action and swore at the officers. According to one witness, it was the police that turned the confrontation into a physical matter by grabbing one son around the neck and lifting him off the ground. They then tasered one son who wanted to rescue his father not once but twice. To make matters, the police proceeded to criminally charge the son for . . . you guessed it . . . interfering with a rescue that they refused carry out.

I am sure that there were good reasons for wanting the Coast Guard, but time was clearly of the essence. I am not faulting them for waiting. I was not there. However, it appears that the police escalated the confrontation and compounded the error with the repeated use of a taser as well as arresting a distraught son as his father literally drowned in front of him. There is an obvious lack of judgment and restraint in the use of force when you looks at this video.

It seems strikingly similar to a recent case of a house owner arrested for trying to save his pets in his burning home, click here

A civil lawsuit and a misconduct charge would appear certain in this case.

  1. Couldn’t they just have shot him instead? “A bullet through the head, a lawsuit will prevent.”

  2. deebee who says the tasering was right, and she/he was there. Why does your link not go anywhere and it’s not Google-able? Bullshit.
    I have never seen a pig make any situation better, calling cops ALWAYS makes things worse!

  3. Nazi Goons! that’s what the cops have become. They are supposed to protect and serve, not harass and intimidate! Sadly there is no control over the mindset of those who choose law enforcement. It’s my belief that a large number of them are the kids who got picked on and had their heads stuffed in toilets. Sure that was wrong and may cause them to grow up wanting revenge but giving them a badge is not doing anyone any good. Government is supposed to help not hinder, and law enforcement is a hindrance to freedom. I have ideas that might make the world a better place but as long as money and power are the guiding factors we cannot change things. I’d loose my mind if someone tried to stop me from protecting one of my family. the cops should be ashamed and their badges should be revoked. 420 forever!!!!

  4. Um, jesurgislac,

    I learned long ago to never get between a ‘domestic dispute’, but looking at your Comment (N) count, you could definitely “use”, and should want, mespo.

    However, in the interest of full disclosure, you should know that mespo is a PI litigator.

  5. There’s a great C and W song perfect for this occassion. I think it’s by George Jones and it starts with something like this:

    “There’s a bible on the table and a sign put on the door…” Nobody does cheatin’ better than The Oppssum!

  6. Mespo:

    Keep your guilt-ridden animal pictures (the Internet version of flowers). Everything seemed just fine at home until that web tramp jesurgislac showed up on the doorstep.

    1. Mespo, if you must see other blogs like jesurgislac, have the decency of discretion. Your wandering fingers have long been a concern for some of us that any new blog that bats its virtual lashes and whistles would distract you. You will find little satisfaction, Mespo. A relationship is more than flashy graphics and a few gifs. A good old-fashioned binary relationship is better than risking virus and other things in consorting with one-night stands with some cyberpunk. A wandering router has been the undoing of many a good blogger. I suggest you leave a virtual 20 on the dresser and return home where the heart is.
