A Blue Island police officer used a stun gun on the victim of a hit-and-run crash, and the victim says the incident changed his life forever.
Donald Flores needed help after a June 2012 hit-and-run incident. Instead, he says, police caused him further injury.
“I just wanted to go home to basically die, where I felt more at peace,” Flores says
Dazed and covered in blood, he was walking home when he came upon Blue Island Police who had been called to do a well-being check on him.
“The first two officers, they did the right thing,” Flores says.
But then he encountered Sgt. Schultz. Flores says the sergeant screamed at him, “`Are you out of your effin’ mind? You’re bleeding.’”
Stunned, Flores says he yelled back and then it escalated. When the sergeant threatened to use a stun gun on him, Flores said he implored him not to because he has an electronic spinal device to treat a previous injury to his hand.
When the stun gun was used, Flores says it caused a seizure. ”When I was seizing they told me, ‘Stop it. Quit resisting,’” he says.
