National Action Network V.P. tazed in Mississippi.


Debra Simmons, 55, vice-president of the Mississippi Chapter of the National Action Network (NAN), the civil rights organization founded by Rev. Al Sharpton, was violently pushed to the ground, held down and tasered at a civil rights rally in Natchez, Mississippi by deputies of the Adams County Sheriff's department.

Simmons and members of NAN traveled to Natchez to throw full support behind Glennese Smith Scott, 33, a social worker and author of the book, “Surviving A Thousand Deaths,” who is in the midst of an uphill court battle against the Sheriff’s Department for abuse — and negligence — she allegedly suffered at their hands that caused her to miscarry twins.
