You really couldn't make this up - The blind tazering the blind!

It's good to know that the UK's finest are out there protecting us -makes you sleep comfortably at night. Recently cops were hunting for a maniac with a Samurai sword who was running amok in Chorley, Lancashire.

However a row has broken out after cops Tazered a 62 year old blind man after mistaking his white stick for a Samurai sword -what the fuck!

Apparently reports that the blind man was dressed all in black and waving his stick about while chanting, "Cowabunga!" have proven unfounded.

Colin Farmer, 62, was stunned by a policeman who was looking for a man walking through Chorley with a samurai sword on 12 October.

The officer is said to have mistaken Mr Farmer's white stick for the sword. It's the latest in a string of mistaken identities and follows PC Simon (Judge Dredd) Harwood last year mistaking a man returning home from work for a protester at the G20 and killing him. Of course those of us who remember the miner's strike of the 80's know that the police are best avoided at all costs.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said it was particularly keen to speak a man and woman who left a nearby restaurant. Mr Farmer, who was taken to hospital for treatment and later discharged, is suing Lancashire Police.The IPCC, which is investigating the Tasering, said it wanted to hear from anybody who was on Peter Street at 18:35 BST.

A police spokesman has said that the officer's Tazered has been taken from him and locked in a cupboard where he can't get at it.
