1 Waffle House employee is stronger than 3 cops? Never underestimate redneck strength.

At least Tazers are voltage limited.
Before Tazers the cops in Santa Rosa county Fl. used 250,000 volt stun guns and wired you up with alligator clips to various body parts.

Of course, they subdued and handcuffed you first.....

Here is an idea....hire cops that can actually physically restrain the perps just like the old days. This would result in the guy getting wrestled to the ground and handcuffed - not electrocuted.

These sorry cops need to do their jobs and not rely on weapons to do what they should be doing.

If break you're ankle so badly there's a piece of bone sticking out, and yet you're still able to walk around, you know you're on angeldust.

Excellent. Now I have a reliable test for those times when I wonder if I'm on angeldust.

a night stick is considered a less than lethal weapon. doesn't mean you can't beat someone to death with one.

/same for tazers
//i call shenningans on that story
///lot more going on than they reported
//like how did he go from "getting tazered with no effect" to "critical condition"? the only fact i could ascertain was he was in police custody between the waffle house and the hospital.
/"there was nothing we could do" said the cops. i bet they did plenty on the way to the hospital

The police had no choice. The man must have been on something really strong not to notice a bone sticking out of his leg.


Did you miss the part where one waffle house employee subdued him?

I dont get this shiat, is it that hard for 4 cops to hold one dude down?

duckpoopy: Is the phrase 'compound fracture' in use anymore? Or do they just not teach it to journalists?

It just doesn't have the same oomph as "jesus christ, he's got a bone sticking out!"

And it's all about selling papers...

I believe I read somewhere once that most media aimed at the average American is wrote at a 3rd grade reading level to insure the majority of the target audience understands it.

It also appears they have taken the concept to the next level and now most media is not only wrote at a 3rd grade reading level but it is also wrote by 3rd graders. Thus removing any chance of the information being to deep or complex for the reader.

I think even if the cop is Hulk Hogan size he/she (picture the Hulk Hogan sized she-cop!) should still tazer the hell out of just about anyone that even looks like they will resist. Why ? Because it don't matter how big you are you don't want some crazy farkers blood on you and infecting you with who knows what.

"It still is unclear why Enard's condition had deteriorated to critical by the time he reached the hospital."

I dunno... maybe the broken ankle, protruding bone, "unknown" substance, and being tasered had a little something to do with it? Just a hunch.

Without actually seeing the incident on tape I wouldnt be to harsh on the cops ability to restrain him. I know from personal experience that some guys just go ape when they see a cop and can not be subdued. I had a cousin who was bi-polar/multiple personality disorder and mentally retarted.

I could take him down easy when he had an episode, but if a cop came by he turned into the incredible freakin hulk. I am not exagerating that last time he was arrested it took 11 cops to subdue him.

This is one of the best songs evar:

IN A WAFFLE HOUSE
IN ALABAMA

I had to get to Nashville, I was driving through the night
Coming in from Mobile, I stopped in for a bite
My ex-wife had my money, but I needed to be fed
I had to cut some corners, or I wouldn't have been caught dead
In a Waffle House, particularly in Alabama

It'd been one year since she left me, and today had been kind of rough
It was the special anniversary of the day she took all my stuff
I was looking at the menu and the lovely pictures there
The waitress said, "Can I take your order?" and I looked up and stared
At my ex-wife, working in a Waffle House

In a Waffle House in Alabama, I just sat and stared and stammered
Revenge don't come much sweeter than that
I wasn't quite good enough for her, and now she's cleaning up for sure
Wearing that stylish apron and a paper hat

She realized it was me, she knew she couldn't run
I just sat and thought to myself, "This could be fun"
I said, "How's your friend, you know, that big old biker?"
She said they'd broken up, as she wiped off the formica in the Waffle House
In Alabama

I said, "You're looking well, do you make some good tips?"
Her look told me to go to hell, but not a word passed from her lips
So I ordered me a waffle, and some coffee and some juice
And I thought, "I'm glad the Waffle House has found some kind of use
For my ex-wife, cause I sure couldn't"

Oh, in a Waffle House in Alabama, wishing to hell I had my camera
Revenge don't come much sweeter than that
She left me for another lover, now she's serving 'em scattered, smothered, and covered
Wearing that stylish apron and a paper hat

Soon after she'd taken it all and split it seems that the biker ran off with it
Now she's frying up bacon, serving up spam, to truckers and bikers in Birmingham

I felt a little sorry for her, just the teeniest bit
And I figured I should leave her a real nice tip
So I got me a napkin, and I proceeded to write
Next time don't leave a good man for a loser with a bike
Or you'll end up

In a Waffle House in Alabama, you got what you deserve, goddam ya
Revenge don't come much sweeter than that
Her brand-new lover took all her junk, now she's serving 'em scattered, smothered, and chunked
Wearing that stylish apron and a paper hat
She was wearing that stylish apron and a paper hat

Internal memo to all Waffle House managers.
Please note that effective immediately, we have changed our policy on naked men entering our restaurants. We will no longer service these people as they have no visible means of paying for food. Our policy of servicing naked woman will remain the same. We will still offer our complimentary pancake breakfast with extra syrup.

In all fairness to the 4 pussified cops who couldn't restrain this drugged out freak while 1 Waffle-House employee had no problem restraining him without help, the night shift Waffle-House cooks around here are usually 6'3" 250 lb. ex-cons who's resumes include cooking in the prison kitchen and killing a man with his bare hands.

"This is not the first time dealing with a situation like this, and I'm sure it will not be our last," Francis said. "I'm sure some people are going to have some ill feelings about this. But this is the business we're in, and it's not always pretty, but we have to go out and get the job done."

That was the Waffle House manager right?

Four officers were called to the Waffle House, and when the male employee freed Enard, he once again became combative toward officers, who unsuccessfully attempted to restrain him.


So this employee of waffle house was able to get the guy in a choke hold, not something easily done especially when the person is combative, but four officers couldn't control the guy? I call bull shiat, these officers were just trigger happy.

"Waffles!"

On a more serious note, it's not hard to imagine the employee sneaking up on the guy and getting him in a headlock. The guy was grabbing a waitress after all. When the cops arrive and the cook lets go, it'd be a bit more complicated...

FTA: According to Lafayette police Sgt. Mark Francis, police believe Enard was under the influence of some type of unknown substance

anyone else thinking unknown substance = beer?

Stanfan114a night stick is considered a less than lethal weapon. doesn't mean you can't beat someone to death with one.

Some of you should be beat to death with your own PC rhetoric. Is it always the cop's (US's, southerner's, any non-east coast, non-west coast) person's fault? It couldn't have been the dummy duster, huh?

It does seem to me the police are awful quick to zap a person with a stun gun or pepper spray someone when perhaps a bit more diplomacy might work .....not talking about this situation exactly but others ive seen on the show cops .....many times they let the guy have it when perhaps a less vilolent way may have worked.....Takes patience to work though ......Perhaps the poster above who suggested that if these police were larger,stronger and more physically capable they wouldnt resort to the spray or stun gun ......but sometimes i think they do it just to be vidicative or purely outta arrogance ....like when they already have a guy restrained in back of car and spray em zap em etc .....I dunno
i wouldnt wanna be a cop and deal with the stress of the job and realize lots a times these measures are much more preferable to the alternative like lethal force....I guess i do'nt have an answer

I get so sick of people hiding behind things like 'departmental policy' Bullshiat. You attacked and killed an injured drugged out loony. Just because you hide the criminality of your actions behind a badge down not make them any less criminal. Of course... what comes around goes around.
 
2006-12-19 01:58:24 PM
FYI, the taser was invented as a preferable non-lethal weapon to a nightstick.

In order to use a nightstick for restraint (i.e. not hitting the person) you are talking about choke holds, pressure points, arm bars, etc.

All of which are painful and can cause lasting injury if done incorrectly.

The taser was designed to incapacitate an opponent without lasting injury.


Yes, some people die from tasers. But they are usually hopped up on drugs, or have a weak heart, or similar. A healthy sober person rarely (if ever) dies from a taser hit.


Perhaps crime should come with a disclaimer.... "If you are hopped up on drugs, or have a weak heart, or other health problems, please do not commit this crime."

Dude.... the guy was whacked out on drugs and behaving "combatively." The "policy" which you have so much disdain for is to arrest him for doing what he was doing.

What's the problem?

You try being a cop, and then come back and tell us all how easy it is.

Jennifer,

There was a study done back in the day (studied it in a Policing Administration class I took) that examined the policing techniques of a policing department. The cops patroled in pairs, but they found that the levels of physical altercations between the police and suspects/citizens were very high.

So, they tried splitting them up and having them patrol alone in conjunction with additional training in mediation and dispute resolution. What they found is that the number of physical altercations decreased. The cops realized that, without a partner, they were going to be getting their asses kicked for a while before back-up arrived if they found themselves on the losing side of a fight. Couple that with the increased training in dispute/conflict resolution, and the cops found that they were able to diffuse many more potential problem situations than previously believed.

Although it wasn't the case here, tasers and, to a lesser extent, pepper spray do take away the incentive for police to talk people down and diffuse situations. It allows them to use physical force with very little chance of pain on their part.

Personally, I'd like to see the rules for using tasers to be almost as strict as the rules for using their firearm.
 
2006-12-19 02:03:17 PM
No shiat, huh? My warehouse was right next door to that Waffle House when I was up in Lafayette. And all the employees stayed at that Motel 6. For what it's worth, the cops didn't "taser him to death". They tasered him, arrested him, loaded him in an ambulance, and he died in a hospital. It's not like they sat there and fried him until he died. I don't see why people always think this is the case. I guess it's not even remotely possible that someone so farked up on drugs that he could jump off a balcony, suffer a compound fracture in his farking ankle and not even blink, RUN into the lobby, strip naked, RUN out into the street, wave down a car, wind up at a Waffle House 2 miles down the road, and assault an employee could have died from anything except the taser jolt. Yeah. That's flawless logic. It had to be the taser that killed him. Couldn't have possibly been anything else. He was so perfectly healthy before the tasering. And a true credit to the human race at that.

/he won't be missed, I guarantee you
//Good riddence
///Wish these crazy farkers would get dispatched or kill themselves more often
