Edmonton constable suspended for using stun gun on 16-year-old
An Edmonton police officer who used a stun gun on a passed-out teen eight times in just over a minute during an incident a decade ago has been suspended for 120 hours without pay.
Const. Mike Wasylyshen was convicted last month of using excessive force and insubordination for repeatedly using a Taser on Randy Fryingpan, then 16, as he lay passed out in the back seat of a friend's car.
