Dan Tessien (Modesto, CA: 2007) is deaf man who was pulled over while driving by police in a case of mistaken identity. Police ordered him out of the car, first in English, then in Spanish. But Tessien did not move because he was deaf. Within sixty seconds police blew out his back window and began pelting him with nylon bean bags containing 40 grams of lead shot. Tessien claims he repeatedly yelled to the officers he was deaf while they continued to shoot at him.
