Ohio Taser Incident Caught on Tape
WARREN, Ohio -- There's another high-profile Taser case.
This one involves a police video released in Warren Thursday. It's from Patrolman Richard Kovach's police cruiser and city administrators said it shows him jolting 38-year-old Heidi Gill at least twice: both before and after she was handcuffed. It shows her falling face-first onto the pavement and being knocked unconscious.
The officer's report said the woman had kicked out a rear window in his cruiser and had tried to crawl into the front seat. She was being transferred to another police car when she was shot with a Taser.
Kovach has been put on administrative leave while the Sept. 2 incident is investigated.
The woman said she was left with bruises and impaired vision.

The reality is that sometimes our job isn't "pretty". We get called to take care of the problems others can't or won't deal with. My badge says "Police Officer", not "Politically and Aesthetically Correct Public Pleaser".
There's obviously more to this incident than what is being released with the video clip. Had little Miss Heidi complied, Taser deployment would not have been neccessary. I'm curious to know what she was doing that initiated LEO response...The true measure of your character is what you choose to do when you think no one is looking.
