U.S. border authorities fired stun guns at least 70 times over four years at people who were running away, even though there was no struggle or clear indication that agents were in danger, a newspaper reported Friday.
At least six times, agents used the weapons against people who were trying to climb a border fence and get back into Mexico.
The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/1M5U2GF ) also said three people had died after being hit by Tasers wielded by border agents or customs officers.
Two people were shocked while they were handcuffed, and two were hit with five cycles of the weapon, even though the agency’s policy says no one should receive more than three.
The Times examined 450 uses of Tasers from 2010 to 2013 that were documented by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.
