Deep Contact: Slappajo: Deathfrogg: Slappajo:
Ignoring the "running at them" (which a cop is likely to put in his report just like "strong odor of alcohol" or "was non-compliant with officer's instructions") I think the mitigating factor here is the severity or type of crime.  The person killed here posed no threat to anyone if he got away.


You forgot "there was a strong oder of marijuana" and "He was a knee-grow driving a nice car" and "I thought he might have had a gun".

I was just providing examples, not trying to provide an extensive list...One of my favorites is also "I pulled you over because you were weaving."  This one was used quite extensively by the cops in the small town that I grew up in so they could just pull anyone over at will which would then lead to the "I smell alcohol" or "I smell marijuana" or "your eyes are red" which gives probable cause to search the vehicle...yada, yada, yada...

Weaving must be more dangerous than texting while driving.

Wouldn't that be textiling while driving?

So, he's only one for four.  At least he got the useless tagger.  With a little effort he can raise his average to .300 and we won't have to trade him.

Nobody deserves to be tasered, not even the sharp-toothed, wired-wrong, social misfits that call for the liberal use of said tasers.
It's just not nice, the barbs leave little holes that can contribute to karma leakage and the resultant mindful of electrical storm from a tasering can cause havoc with your rotational eclipse, or cognitive feedback circuits.
I say we just throw goldfish at each other if we want to create mayhem, otherwise let each others live in peace, no matter what supposed crimes we imagine are happening.

TuteTibiImperes: The Internet seems out to get this guy because he used appropriate force to stop a vandal that he caught red handed who then fled and resisted arrest.

Granted, some of the policeman's previous actions may warrant review, but in the case that's bringing this all up I don't see how he did anything wrong.

A taser shouldn't kill someone, in this case it did, which is unfortunate, but it never would have happened if the vandal hadn't run away when he was confronted.


I also think we should kill vandals, glad to see I'm not the only crazy person.

Yeah, it's the Internet. Some nameless force. Some group of whiners hiding behind an electronic curtain. There are no real victims out there.

The scariest thing is how did it all start? How did the Internet just up and decide to start targeting this one officer? How did it manage to successfully entrap him so often? What motive drives the Internet to scheme to ruin this man's life?

Despite it all, the Internet is still at large. And thankfully for this officer, the only people hurts so far are these "alleged" victims.

I've seen this movie.  You go and you tell some broad who's idiot kid got his ass sent to Valhalla for being a stupid punk kid with a rattlecan, then I'll care about the armchair stoic fandango.  And I don't think you're gonna stop pestering me with it, so.. bye.

TuteTibiImperes: I don't see how anyone can hold what happened against the officer


I dunno, try hanging this guy's rèsumè on the tagger and you'd be screaming for him to head off to gay sex dungeon land for life.  Apologists don't interest me.  Justice interests me.  Call me when it also interests the cops.  I can put a badge on and blow your head off and be home by five.  If you're fine with that, I can't think of anything to say to you.
