Between March 31 and July 31, Milwaukee Police used their 14 new Tasers 105 times on suspects, the Journal Sentinel reports. That’s about five times a week. One person shocked was a 63-year-old grandmother trying to keep child welfare officials from taking her grandson.

One man rated the pain as 40 on a scale of one to 10, according to police reports the paper reviewed. Another jumped up and asked officers “Is that all you got?”
