Proper Treatment


Michelle Schreiner is a diabetic and her blood sugar was dangerously low, so a friend called 911. For some reason, dispatch sent a police officer as well as paramedics to her Gresham, Oregon, home. When they got there, Schreiner was holding a syringe filled with insulin and drifting in and out of consciousness. The officer ordered her to drop the syringe, and when she didn't, he Tasered her and handcuffed her before paramedics treated her. The city settled a lawsuit filed by Schreiner for $37,500.
