An Iraq war veteran was shot in the face and neck with 50,000 volts of electricity by an Angel Fire Police officer last year. The ex-Marine was hiding under his bed when he was shot and, according to the police report, was too drunk to stand.

According to the police report, the two veterans had been in a yelling match with the landlord over a snowmobile they had accidentally wrecked while trying to get a vehicle unstuck from the snow. The landlord told police that the veterans were armed with high powered assault rifles and were threatening him. One of the veterans, who refused to have his name released for fear of further police violence and legal battles, reported that the only person on the property with any kind of weapon were the police and the landlord who had verbally assaulted the two ex-Marines that were reminiscing over the war and their friends who had died in Iraq.

After incapacitating the two veterans, police searched the yurt only to find empty bottles of alcohol.

Shocking. Considering how caring our federal government is towards our brave war veterans.
