Power is a very dangerous thing. If used wisely, it can act towards the betterment and security of the society, but if fallen into the wrong hands, it may become a threat to the society as well. Something similar happened in Missouri, the USA when an Independence police officer misused his power and almost killed a teen.
This incident is a lesson for everyone who holds the authority to use it wisely and only for a positive reason.

Bryce refuses to come out of the car and repeatedly asks if he is under arrest. The Officer finally tells him that he is under arrest, after which Bryce asks him the reason of his arrest.
The worse part is the electric stream of the Taser remained deployed for 20 seconds while the officers are trained to use it only for 5 seconds.
The teen went into a coma soon after that and now suffers from a brain damage. All of this because a police officer showed off his power on a non-threatening teen.
The US Attorney Tammy Dickinson stated: "His use of excessive force violated both the public's trust and his oath to uphold the law. Police officers are not above the law and will be held accountable when they violate the civil rights of the citizens they are sworn to protect and serve."
