KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) – The Kenosha police chief has been ordered to review an officer’s questionable use of a Taser against a man in July. The Kenosha Police and Fire Commission made that decision in a closed session Tuesday. Commission President Ronald Frederick says the panel gave Chief John Morrissey 90 days to report back on his findings. Both Frederick and a Kenosha Police Department spokesman say it will be up to Morrissey to determine how to conduct the review. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/10791HE) reports a squad car video shows a Kenosha officer deploying the stun gun against an unarmed man within seconds of arriving to a call about two men fighting. The man hit with the Taser falls straight backward. The officer’s written report does not match what’s seen on the video.
