Clarence Thomas' Nephew Tasered While Epileptic


Talk about High Tech Lynching...




A New Orleans TV station, USA Today, The Washington Post, Democratic Underground, Tasered Nation along with alternative news outlets are reporting that hospital security beat down Clarence Thomas' Suicidal, Epileptic Nephew. Ouch!


The nephew, Derek Thomas, is epileptic and suffered a seizure after being stunned, his family told ABC-affiliate WGNO.


He was taken to West Jefferson Medical Center in Marrero after a possible suicide attempt yesterday. His family said that after he refused to put on a gown, guards punched him in the lip, grabbed his hair and shocked him.


The family said doctors knew Thomas is epileptic but directed that he be stunned to restrain him. No comment from the hospital so far.


The station says Justice Thomas is expected to travel to New Orleans "as soon as possible." 

OMG, maybe the tasering of Americans will get some attention now that  nephew of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has been tortured with a taser. 


Bloggers such as, Pam's  House Blend, The Afrospear, The Police Brutality BlogTasered While BlackHullabaloo, Tasered Nation, Electronic Village,Wonkette, Black Women in Europe™  Blog, THE  INTERSECTION | MADNESS & REALITY,Jack and Jill Politics, Electrocuted While Black, and a number of other bloggers have been paying close attention to the issue of Taser Torture for many years. 

It's too bad Clarence Thomas was not concerned , until now...




When I tried to get the conversation about taser abuse going at the so-called liberal blog, the Daily Kos.. there was limited concern until the nephew of Clarence Thomas got tasered. I guess it news worthy for now.

Other bloggers such as Truth...Not Tasers and the Excited-Delirium blog (mine). Both of these blogs have THOUSANDS of posts dedicated FULL TIME to the taser issue. Both should be on the must-read lists for anyone concerned about the issue.

Is Justice Thomas indeed concerned over the issue now? The treatment his nephew received is scandalous. Tasers in hospitals? For not wanting to put on a gown? It is just like something out of One Flew Over A Cookoos' Nest.
