A family member of Mr McCarthy, from West Derby, told the ECHO: “There were three couples that were all out, three females and three males.
“They were in a bar and they walked out to call a taxi. One of the girls with them had their bum pinched by somebody.”
She added: “They (doctors) worked on him for an hour last night. [He was] Tasered four times – you are not supposed to Taser anybody more than once. The kid’s fighting for his life.”Sorry to burst your bubble there, love, but I think you'll find the police are entitled to Taser someone who is resisting arrest as many times as is needed to subdue them.
The family member added: “They were celebrating their friends having a new baby and the next thing you know they were in hospital [with James] fighting for his life.”Yes, I'm absolutely positive there was nothing in between those two incidents.
The police just decided they had too much electricity in their Tasers, it was making them too heavy, and they'd better get rid of some.
You know what else you're 'not supposed to do'? Get drunk and drugged up and violent, and fight with the police.
Yes. Even in Liverpool!
