Man with Autism Tasered eight times by police

A man with learning disabilities was tasered eight times by a Greater Manchester Police officer.

Michael Gilchrist suffered catastrophic psychological injuries after he was repeatedly hit with stun guns.

Michael's mother says police saw her son as nothing - ''just another black lad from a council estate.''

He was also doused with pepper spray despite officers knowing he had mental health issues.

There has been no apology yet from GMP.
