On October 2012, I got TASERed. The door to freedom mocked me from less than ten feet away — but there was no escape. I shouldn’t have done it, but I had asked for this and it was too late now.

Two police officers, one on either side of me, gripped my shoulders, trapping my arms. A booming voice behind me shouted “TASER! TASER! TASER!” and then everything went black.
