Bullying by taser at Texas auto dealer: Manager films, laughs, expects legal protection


Bradley Jones worked at Fred Fincher Motors, Houston, Texas. For the last several months, his sadistic coworkers and the dealership manager, Sam Harless, tasered him dozens of times. A taser attack is painful and a form of torture. When applied by untrained amateurs, it can result in death.

Jones endured the surprise, pain and humiliation simply because his coworkers sought to entertain themselves deriving their pleasure from his pain. They filmed the events and posted on YouTube (since taken down.) Jones has filed a Harris County civil lawsuit (Case 1035300 on Aug. 2) against his three assailants — Adam Winslow, Sam Harless and Alberto Chavarria, and the owner of the dealership, Patricia Harless (wife of manager Sam and a Texas State Representative). We at WBI hope law enforcement also pursues criminal prosecution of these civil defendants.

Somebody should at least their jobs for their monstrosity. Guess who was banished. Bradley Jones was fired!

Watch the KHOU-TV story and see Sam Harless’s confidence that the county court system will exonerate him and his cohorts.

Not sure which is worse — a gloating Harless or recognizing the trauma to which Jones was subjected while simply trying to sell cars or the all too predictable fact that the victim was the one fired !!! Share your outrage with Sam Harless.

Help the Texas State Coordinator get the anti-bullying Healthy Workplace Bill enacted.

    Tasers are potentially lethal, even when used by trained professionals.

    Anyone who does not consider being tasered as a criminal assault (exception for law enforcement officers following use of force protocols appropriately) should speak from personal experience.
