Asheville Taser victim to appear on Fox TV

Asheville’s Kyle Ann Ross, whose early morning trek in 2005 to tend a neighbor’s pets in Oakley led to an erroneous arrest and three jolts from a Taser, will be a panelist tomorrow, Sept. 26, on the Fox network’s “Morning Show With Mike and Juliet.” The show airs at 10 a.m. on local cable channel 6 (WHNS-Greenville).

The panel discussion will focus on the use of Tasers by law enforcement. Since her own experience, Ross has become an advocate for reform of the APD-complaint process and for external police oversight. According to Ross, her recent Xpress commentary on the subject, “Shocked,” prompted the invitation from the show.

    I hear that freakinAsheville dot com will be hosting a “tazing for dollars” event in the near future. That should be exciting.

    Looking at Ms Ross’ photo, I can just tell that she is a vicious, terroristic person, who needed tazing while surrounded by THREE police officers!

    I think EVERY police officer should be zapped at least three times EACH, before being handed a tazer, just so they know what it’s like.
