Cocaine's a hell of a drug.

So the police are allowed to harm or kill people (even sex offenders) and not be charged with assault, or murder? This liberal commie hippie wants to see those officers brought up on charges. And for tasers to be outlawed from use. It gives cops a false sense of safety.

Safety? Dude it is a farking war zone in Florida. There are naked guys everywhere. Flying out of trees, dancing through strip mall parking lots, power walking down the highway! They are out of control and the cops keep tasering them but the bastards keep coming! We're losing ground here! At this point it looks as if the naked dudes actually like tasers. There's a whole underground network of them, infesting the cities like rats. Elctroshockjiggly eye-popping human-sized shaved rats! I don't know whose sick idea it was in the first place, but I know one thing for certain: the Florida police are being turned into pervert servicing electric cyborgs. Decent folk just stick 12 volt batteries to their tongues, and they take the party home! But a taser is to the naked Florida man what the invention of the vibrator was to the Bryn Mawr dormitory. Why, Florida did not even know what a naked man looked like until the taser was invented!

The cops are not safe! The cops are being used and violated! I bet the naked men don't even phone them in the morning.

This will never happen. Most Americans have a reactionary or knee-jerk morality coupled with an annoying tendency toward unquestioning respect for authority. The moral question of whether an alleged criminal, for example, should be treated in manner X never arises because to most people he's a criminal and the people tasing him to death were police. Criminals are bad. Police are good. See how that works?

I agree, they should just go back to shooting people.

/what's happening here?
//isn't this the correct response???

I see that you feel people who had the misfortune of mooning a car that happened to have a minor in it barely qualify as people. Farkwit.

So, not having been armed with a taser, these guys would have discharged firearms? Isn't that why tasers were put into service? To be used instead of a firearm in a situation that would normally have called for one?

If a bunch of cops can't seize one unarmed man without tasing him they are a bunch of lame-ass wussies. I don't think resisting arrest is a good enough reason. Using taser in extreme situations where you would otherwise use a firearm is one thing, tasing so that you don't have to touch naked man's dirty skin is another.

They're just trying to keep all those naked, high and horny Floridians from raping alligators.

Won't someone please think of the gators!

Why the hell should a cop risk personal injury by going hand to hand with someone? That's just ignorant. The taser is there to protect the officer and the suspect from major injury. The dude's a cokehead, that couldn't have had anything to do with his death? Would you rather they dog piled him and crushed him, beat him with a baton or just shot him? If you think you can do a better job as a cop, go apply and show us how it's done. If not, shut your pie hole and remember that cop does not equal abusive or dirty. Just like black doesn't equal criminal and white doesn't equal trailer trash.

I think tazers are by and large an excuse to torture people on a whim, except...

If you're being called on to restrain a naked lunatic running around in traffic, I have a hard time seeing how the situation is resolved without a tazin'.

Oh, wait, naked guy obviously doesn't have a weapon. Never mind. Get the butterfly net.
