Thank you for not disappointing...

Don't tase my bros!

zez: The electric taser probes hit Peter in the groin, missing his penis by three inches, and his right ankle.

Holy shiat! His penis hangs almost all the way to his ankle??!!!


... giggity

bamf75: AlphaTwin: bamf75: It's really time to take these away from police. I don't get it, the government is of the people for the people, yet these assholes seem immune to public pressure.

Ya, because this would have turned out so much better if he'd have upholstered his side arm.

Tasers save lives, on both sides of the dispute. I do however agree that cops often get an unfair advantage often, and are taken at their word too frequently. But you have to consider that they and the system that they work in, sees mostly lying scumbags day in and day out. They're bound to be a bit prejudiced, not and excuse, just saying.

So, most cops are good, and most people the cops deal with every day are lying scumbags?


I could have worded that a bit form clearly. I'm just saying that cops and the people that deal with law enforcement see a hell of a lot more idiots and scumbags that say your average person. Again, not an excuse to be a farking ass bag, I'm just saying. I would image it would make you a bit more cynical over time to your species as a whole.

Unless you're talking about inner city Baltimore or some other high crime area that's a farking lie. Most of these fat farks just sit along the highway and give out speeding tickets all day. They rarely deal with the scum anymore. It just isn't profitable to do so. The only scum they deal with are non violent hippy pot heads.


I believe your view on the topic is about as far from the truth as you interpreted my comment to be, just to the other end of the spectrum.

spacechicken170am: The only way to stop it is to either take the tazers away or taze them every time they taze us.

I like this idea, but only for questionable tasings. It could cut down a lot of paperwork for IA. If they find that the tasing was justified, no problem. But if it's questionable, the offending cop goes through taser training again, including getting a jolt, and the case is closed. If the person who got unjustly tased accepts this instead of a law suit/cash settlement, it could also save the police department some money too.

You know he is lucky. You usually have to pay extra for that.

There's a show on TV, it's called 'Cops'. You should check it out. Idiot lying coward scumbags abound.

They have no real pressure to change. Just whining about it online and filing paper complaint forms isn't exactly striking any fear into the hearts of these dipshiats. We should get tasers out on the civilian market and just start tasing cops until they knock this shiat off but we won't do that because we're pussies.

Quit your whining. Would you have preferred this was a gun?

Tasers are good. A non-lethal way to diffuse violent situations or restrain suspects without physical contact. A few accidents don't negate that.


Yes... they do. They ARE lethal weapons. "Accidentally" firing one or (if we give the asshat in Oakland the benefit of the doubt) grabbing one unnecessarily (or in his case grabbing the wrong gun... riiiggghhht) do mean it's time to retire them and time to practice better conflict management.

What the hell does that Lebowski quote have to do with anything?

You don't think they pick out the "best" interactions between the cops and the public to make the show more compelling, do you? Or do you believe the half hour show on Fox is an accurate portrayal of half an hour in a cop's life?

While I like the idea, I don't think it goes far enough... See "taser training" usually means getting tased in the back, while wearing safety goggles, on a soft mat, with two people standing next to you to gently lower you to the ground. Additionally, theoretically the cop is in good physical condition, and there's probably a medical person standing nearby.
That doesn't properly reflect the other side of the fence, where they tase some 90 year old grandmother with a heart condition that could kill her.
So, how about this: figure out what the average odds of death are from tasing, and load one bullet into a revolver in a pile of empty revolvers such that 1/(number of empty chambers) is equal to that number. Take one at random, give it a spin, and pull the trigger. Odds of dying are really, really, really low, but not zero - as a result, it may make them empathize with the person they tased that they could have accidentally killed.

Actually, in a way, that was the best verdict they could have gotten... You get the cop for murder, then okay, he goes to jail. But this - the taser was so poorly designed that a trained user can't tell the difference between it and a lethal weapon in the heat of the moment... That's a slam dunk product liability wrongful death suit, which could get the family millions.

There is no gottamn reason whatsoever the copper (sorry, Fark uber-internet tactical guys, "LEO") needed to have that weapon drawn. This is some serious bullshiate.

Unless of course, this was Chicago-land, well on its way to achieving Neo-Detroit stature.

As someone who would probably die if tasered, I couldn't agree more. When cops undergo a tasering as part of their training, they do so under strict medical supervision, but when a cop decides to use his taser on a member of the public he's pretty unlikely to first call a doctor to make sure it's ok.
 
2010-07-20 02:10:42 PM  
Subby...why didn't you use the guy's name in your headline? It's comedy gold.

FTA...Eyewitnesses say the male officer pointed the taser gun at Peter Cox "for more than 20 seconds" before lowering the weapon.
 
2010-07-20 05:29:07 PM  
Tune in next week for the follow-up headline; "Cops accidentally molotov'd by man accidentally groin-tazered".

Peter Cox.
