Re: "I thought it was my taser" Shooting

I've no issue with forcibly handling those who don't cooperate. But in the very first instance I don't go from having failed to handcuff them, and they were initially complying, to shooting them once they panic and do something stupid. There really should be several intervening steps before that po...

"Triggering riots" :lol: You really are a silly boy. My bad, it was my understanding there's widespread mistrust of the police especially in regard to treatment of non whites.

Re: "I thought it was my taser" Shooting

There is a vast gulf between just letting him go and shooting him, even shooting him with a less lethal taser. The job is to protect and serve, and that can be managed over a 24 hour period of tracking him down and arresting him if needs be, and adding the charge of resisting arrest, and adding ano...
