ok, ill play along but whats the ratio with that in mind? how many people have died from Tazers compared to those who were just subdued? your still overlooking my main point here Yavoon. if the guy would have just showed his receipt it would have never gone that far. and this is the kind of crap that happens everyday. Law Enforcement continuelly have to put up with Gungho citizens who try and buck the system. this takes me back to the young teen who was shot and killed in Cincy after stealing 20 bucks from some woman. the officer chases him down and he gets cornered in a alley. the officer than proceeds to tell the kid to put his hands up and lay on the ground. so, what does the kid do? he smiles ( as if this is a joking matter ) and puts one of his hands in his pocket. now, obviously the officer shoots him in fear of something happening to him. and had the kid pulled a gun and killed the officer no one would be making a stink about it, instead the kid would go to trial and be tried as a minor because he " didnt know any better ". the way i look at it, if you stupid enough to challenge authority than your ready to deal with the consequences.
