(NaturalNews) Daniel Jensen of Pinellas Park, Florida, was simply trying to protect his house from burning down when he instinctively grabbed the garden hose and began dousing the corner of his roof and backyard fence with water to prevent nearby flames from catching hold. But this was apparently unacceptable behavior in the eyes of the local police department, whose corrupt officers decided it was somehow appropriate to aggressively taser Jensen in the back for trying to protect his family and property from the approaching flames.
According to WTSP 10 News in Tampa Bay, police officers who arrived at the scene of the fire before firefighters showed up actually demanding that Jensen leave his house alone and allow it to burn, claiming “that’s what insurance is for.” Not wanting to see his beloved home needlessly catch fire, potentially taking with it all of his family’s personal possessions and irreplaceable mementos, Jensen made the sovereign decision to reject the officers’ poor advice and grab the garden hose again after flames suddenly jumped from his neighbor’s house to his own.
Upon doing so, the Pinellas Park Police Department sergeant who was on the scene began shouting at another officer to “hit him” and “take him down” with a taser, statements which Jensen says he had no idea at that time were in reference to himself. Almost immediately after these statements were shouted; however, Jensen recalls being struck in his back with the dual taser barbs, which brought him to his knees and ultimately face down on the ground as if he was some kind of criminal.
