Doesn't care, got cake.

That smile and the fact that it looks like a home-made cake really sell it. That's hilarious.

Amazon is awesome.  I just ordered 50 cakes and a dozen tasers and they'll be here before Christmas.

Doesn't work that way. You still get 5-7 years. Only other cops can do it.

/ just like shooting unarmed brown people

WOW. Camera set to 'LOSSIEST' - no, seriously now - how many times was that put through the same image compression algorithm?

I posted it from my cell phone after opening the image on the mobile site.  It's probably not the best source.

I think if I did that, I'd say man! That smells like bacon!  We'd both laugh for a while and maybe when we were done  he'd forget about shooting me.

I giggle at apologies like this. It's not "I'm sorry I tased you"......it's "I'm sorry you were tased." Not an apology at all; its a deferral of blame. For the linguists out there, very Spanish.

If I worked with either of these guys they'd never hear the end of it.

Why? It's not like the cops would get me a cake if I got accidentally tased.

There will be no accident in your case.

Hah.  No civilian who tased a cop would live long enough to be booked, let along tried and sentenced.

It is nice to see a simple, fun story for a change.

I got pepper sprayed by a rookie on one of his first nights on my shift.  The guy he was going to spray was directly in front of him squaring up to fight and somehow he managed to hit me right in the face and neck while I was to the left of him.

/didn't get a cake
//may have been intentional

If they accidentally did anything they typically accidentally do, you wouldn't be able to appreciate cake anymore.

If you don't know how a taser works, something made painfully clear (literally in this case) by doing things like discharging them at someone in contact with a second person, then you shouldn't be issued a taser.

I know they're technically classified as nonlethals, but if the baker here is actually this incompetent it's only a matter of time before they zap someone with a pacemaker or something and kill a harmless old person with a heart condition.

Tasers should have simple instructions.

\the implications being that citizens are the enemy of cops.

It's not clear what happened to the man or Goldman after that.

He got charged for assaulting an officer with a deadly weapon (along with resisting arrest) as it was the suspects fault that the trooper got charged.

He also got quite a beating.

/guessing
//wouldn't surprise me the least
 
2017-12-12 04:07:51 AM  
I was going to give him one. But someone left it out in the rain. And I don't that I can take it, because it took so long to bake it. And I'll never  have that recipe again.

If you're were 'accidentaly' tased it would be because you were belligerent, assaulting a cop and resisting arrest..... at least that would be the explanation you are given when   you woke up in the hospital and asked why you're hand cuffed to a gurney.

I've tazed about 20 officers, give or take, and never baked cake one...


/Mrs AOW has permabanned me from the kitchen...

I've read all of Miss Manners' books and not one of them mentions that a cake is used for an apology when accidently tasing someone.

"Since they were in contact with each other, they both took the tase," police said in the post.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's not how those work. If you shoot someone with a taser, the current goes from one terminal probe to the other. The only way for them both to get tased is if they both took a probe. So, bad shooting on the part of the deputy.

Ok, you're wrong.  Kind of.  :)

One terminal hit the suspect, the other terminal hit the trooper.  Since both people were in contact, the circuit was completed, so both got shocked.
 
2017-12-12 08:48:24 AM  
And the cake still doesn't take responsibility for the action. It should read, "Sorry I tased you" not "Sorry you got tased."

Brunnen-G: One terminal hit the suspect, the other terminal hit the trooper.  Since both people were in contact, the circuit was completed, so both got shocked.


Right, like I said, "they both took a probe". If the deputy didn't have a clear shot, he shouldn't have taken it. I'm just armchair quarterbacking.

Yet when cops accidentally tase you, they give you a baker's dozen of bullets.
 
2017-12-12 09:43:39 AM  
They should accidentally fire him.
 
2017-12-12 10:19:20 AM  
I must be getting old or something.  The tased cops response made me go "awwww".

Please don't throw me off Fark, it's just a momentary thing.  I'll be bitter and cynical again by this afternoon.

Imagine catching wind of this before receiving his cake.  You could run down to the bakery and order a "you deserved it lol" cake and covertly swap em out, sit back, and enjoy the show to follow
 
2017-12-12 10:43:50 AM  
Maybe one that says "just desserts"

Might be better

LOL that explains it!

Thought it'd been taken on a webcam from 1999 or something! ;)
