Autistic Teenager Is Beaten by Deputies After Being Mistaken for a Prowler

MOUNTAIN GATE, Calif. (AP) - An autistic teenager suffered a head injury and a broken elbow in a beating by three sheriff's deputies who mistook him for a prowler, authorities say.

Pierre Cowell, a 17-year-old who does not speak, had wandered from his home early Friday.

A neighbor, who did not recognize him, called 911 after seeing him outside her home about 2 a.m., Capt. Tom Bosenko said Monday. The woman became alarmed when she heard the doorknob jiggling, he said.

As three deputies approached the house, Cowell ran toward them and bumped one of them, Bosenko said. When Cowell didn't respond to the officers' commands, they used a baton, stun gun and pepper spray to subdue him.

"The officers were very much concerned for their safety," Bosenko said, adding that the deputies thought Cowell was under the influence of drugs. He said that the officers did not know that an autistic teenager was missing at the time.

Cynthia Cowell said she was unaware her son had left their home Friday until deputies came to her door.

"He doesn't understand anything to do with danger. He has to have someone constantly with him," she said.

She said she was surprised the deputies did not know he was autistic until she told them. "Being totally nonverbal would be a clue," she said.

Tragic. You'd think if the kid was autistic enough to not know what house he lives at, the cops would be able to recognize that and realize the kid is most likely not a threat.

:mad2: That just pisses me off.

WTF would they hit him for anyway?

I guess there are a couple cops who are about to be minimum wage security guards at some place like raging waters.

This is a whole new path. You cannot use your old map on this new path and if you try you'll only end up lost in the woods. Get a new map.

1)they hit him with a Very Hard Stick.
2)They gave him a few shocks with a 750,000 volt stun gun.
3)Then deiced "o what the hell" and sprayed him with pepper spray.

This is so disgusting.  I cant even begin to show you guys how sick this really is.  I hope those parents sue the hell outta all 3 of officers and also sue the department.  They obviously need a wake up call over there.

Those fuck tards........ :nonono: :enraged:

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein
