Colin Farmer (Chorley, Lancashire) is a 61-year-old blind man. Colin was taking a walk to a local pub with his white walking stick. The police received complaints about a man walking by Chorley with a samurai sword. A officer spotted Colin with his walking stick and confused the walking stick for the sword and immediately shot him with a 50,000 voltage taser in the back. Colin fell to the ground and the officer started to arrest him. After the officer figured out he was mistaken, Colin was transferred to a hospital. Colin is afraid to leave the house now and is filing a lawsuit against the Lancashire police department. The officer received no discipline for his actions.
