It’s my right to die trying to save my child. Louisiana, Missouri police reportedly used a stun gun three times on Ryan Miller to keep him from entering his burning home to save his three year-old son Riley. Maybe family pleading with a parent, or trying to hold him back, is one thing, but police forcefully stopping you – it’s wrong. They handcuffed Mr. Miller and then tasered him two more times and took him to jail. When they carried little Riley Miller out of the house, still breathing, his dad was in a jail cell. Riley died.
The mom and dad attempted to rush into Riley’s room, but the heat and smoke blocked their path. The Millers scrambled out a back door.
Ryan kicked in the front door and was about to enter when he was tasered — twice, according to Louisiana officials, although the Millers claim the man was shocked three times.
But Ryan wouldn’t sit still.
We are our children’s keepers. We have the right to try to rush to their aid when they need us most. No matter what. Mr. Miller was Ryan Miller’s step-dad according to this article at The Daily Mail.
