"Knightstown police chief gets electrocuted to buy much-needed cruisers"

At least the new cruisers will look good in his funeral procession.

You know how they could've made a shiat-ton of cash? Have people bid on who gets to shock the cop with a Taser.

So.. a kinky cop who likes pain?

Shocking.

He was shot with the Taser in a middle school gym on Wednesday, and the town clerk treasurer followed for what also became a teaching tool for young kids. A K9 officer also showed the crowd what his partner could do.


So, they're terrorists. Great. Way to show those kids who they can trust and rely on.

Fox 59 asked the chief what [his wife] was thinking ahead of the big jolt.  "She wants to pull the trigger," he said. "She likes to see me in pain, I guess."


Yeah, TMI there, chief.

I'm not sure whether it's smart to turn the use of weapons on people into entertainment, especially given that the audience consists of children.

Pretty much man, pretty farking much. You see it is far easier to make a small child fear you then it is to get adults to fear you. Just like with tobacco products, the trick is to get them good and young.

still it sure would have been a good time getting to tazer a cop!

Can they also yell "stop resisting arrest!" While the guy is still spasming on the ground? I think this would be highly relevant info.

I do like the emphasis it puts on "eating your own dogfood" as it were. When that cop tazes someone, he knows exactly what that person is going to go through.

/me and my friends used to play "Lick the electric horse fence" long before tazers were a thing.

It certainly is. The town I grew up in had one police officer, one police car, and very little crime. No tanks, no tasers, and no SWAT team. No one messed with our police officer, not because he was a bad-ass, but because he was one of us. He had to live there too.

I spend summers in rural NY. If you call 911, an air raid siren goes off to alert the volunteer fire department, and one of your neighbors shows up in a few minutes.

/I think they've got pagers too, but you always know when shiat's going down because the siren goes off.

"I have three full-time, five part-time, and nine reserves, and we all have to use the same car," said Knightstown Police Chief Danny Baker.

Judging by the picture, you and your officers could benefit from some walking.

It's a town of 2100 or so people, with a median income of 40K per year.

They also have other public infrastructure to fund. Like roads, power lines, and the fire department, schools, etc. etc.

That's about how intimidating he looked. Also, his initials were P.I.G. For reals! He had a son who was paralyzed from jumping out of a haybarn as a kid. Everyone would push him around town, and make sure his errands got taken care of. He once pulled over a couple of high school friends of mine. The girl hid a beer in her pants. He made her jump up and down, then made her pour the rest out. Then he sent them home. Different times, I guess.

I have a real problem with this.
