Sophie Khan, the solicitor leading the case, last night told Legal Cheek:

“The incident which involved my client is just one in a long line of disproportionate uses of the taser stun guns on vulnerable and disabled people. It raises serious questions about the quality of training that is provided to police officers and whether steps need to be taken to address the lack of training. In the absence of any action by the police service it is likely that such incidents will continue to happen.”
