Tasers kill fewer people then bullets..

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1321501


So does harsh language. My point is tasers serve no purpose whatsoever.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1301223


Obviously everyone here is anti-taser... myself included.

Was wondering where everyone stands on rubber bullets and bean-bag rounds? If they hit someone in the right place... they can kill too... even though they, too, are considered "non-lethal."

They aren't as "torturous" as tasers... but can still be deadly.
 Quoting: tsar_bomba


As I have stated before, I think anyone including cops should be able to use weapons to defend themselves, BUT NOT TO GAIN COMPLIANCE.

Ok let me clarify your last question then. I definitely was no intending to promote the legality of tasers... so I will eat crow if that's how you perceived that comment.

I was just trying to make the point that not breaking the law keeps you from getting zapped.... so if you don't want to get juiced, keep yourself clean because these torture devices are, unfortunately, still legal police weapons.
The fact that I disagree with the legality of tasers is a different story...
 Quoting: tsar_bomba


tell that to the six year old girl of a co worker that a sheriffs deputy used a cattle prod on here in my county to get her to engage in oral sex. he's doing a double dip on a life sentence in Huntsville.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1312328


oh thats just fucked up. he needs to be buried under the prison... that's disgusting.
 Quoting: tsar_bomba


It just illustrates why tasers should be illegal as a device to get people to comply to the whims of police. They're just people, people who unfortunately sremed to be inclined to violent behavior

So what should an officer do to gain compliance then?

Check this video out, I doubt it will imbed.

[link to blutube.policeone.com]

If that isn't the perfect deployment of a Taser being used for compliance, then what is? That guy was huge and would have done some serious damage to himself and those Officers had they not used the Taser on him.

What would your suggestion be on how to restrain a guy like that? Pepper spray? A baton? There would have to be broken bones before a guy like that is going to stop.

I'd love to hear your suggestions.

'Constable' is lucky he didn't taser my kid in my home. whether I hit the kid and he was riled up or not. He was in his own home. thats my goddamned job. I would veiw it as a criminal assault with a deadly weapon taking place in my home with out a just or logical cause. If cops can't subdue an unarmed kid with their strength, then they need to get of the fucking force
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1312328


If the Officer was called to your house by a family member, then he has PC to be there. If your kid is being a jackass and gets Tased, I'm sure you would be pissed but the reality is that the Officer would be well within his rights.

If you chose to do whatever tough guys like you do, then I'm sure you would be dealt with accordingly one way or another.

I wouldn't quite call a Taser "torture". It's an effective compliance tool, that's it. Does it suck? Yes. Is it bad enough after the first time that you will most likely listen? Hell yes. That's why people hate it. It's the instant win button.
 Quoting: Silkstalkings


It is shocking how brainwashed some people are, while others are so awake, and how the two are diametrically opposed to each other. You're missing the whole point.
I am not suggesting anything other than listen to the officer.
 Quoting: Silkstalkings


If I have committed no crime, the officer has no probable cause of illegal activity taking place, or there is not a warrant signed by a judge for my arrest, no police officer has the legal authority to so much as force me to acknowledge his existence.
If you don't, it hurts. If I was a Police Officer and you pointed a Taser at me, I would shoot you with my gun. You know why? Because anyone who is willing to use a Taser on a police officer has intentions of taking things much further. A Police Officer who Tases you wants to arrest you, a civilian Tasing a Police Officer means that they would most likely kill him once he is incapacitated.

Hence the reason for the double standard.
 Quoting: Silkstalkings


I don't follow your 'logic', why would a person being deprived of freedom or assaulted by the police in some manner automatically have killing them on their minds?
Thats the us VS them mentality, and it's lame
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1312328


Because sane people would not even think about trying to use a Taser on a Police Officer who is trying to arrest them.

Ozark police used a taser on a 10 year old girl for refusing to take a bath, The captain said they can use them on any child as they are not lethal weapons. I guess we shouldn't expect a 200 lb police officer to be able to handle a 50 lb girl with mental problems, they surely couldn't let her go to bed with out a bath. You can google this and see I am not making this up.

If cops didn't have tazers then they would just spray you down with mace or shoot you.

Tasers are a great tool. Beats the hell out of a wood shampoo with a hickory stick, or a collapsible baton. All people have to do in order to not get one used on them is follow the directions of the Officer.

Instead they act like dipshits as if they have a say in the matter, then they get zapped. If a cop tells you that you are under arrest, he has made up his mind and feels he has PC to arrest. That is not the time to plead your case. That's when you shut up and do what you are told to do, or you will get Tased, then forced to do what you were told in the first place. That's called losing.

It's pretty simple really, not sure what people don't understand about it.

Oh but it the police.. you cop hating faggets dont care about nothing.. you are all just arm chair warriors
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1153822



When tasers were first introduced, they were sold to the american public as an alternative to lethal force. That is NOT what they have turned into. Do you really mean to tell me everyone who has been tasered since their introduction would have been SHOT if a taser was not available? Find me one headline where it says 'Gun wielding man tasered into submission'. These people are still shot and killed by the police. Instead tasers have been turned into an instrument of forced compliance to any police command.

Its only a matter of time before some cop tasering someone is brought to instant mob justice by the people watching the event instead of just videoing it for you-tube.

To all these faggot shills saying that you shouldn't do something to get tasered your a buttfuuck asshole. I despise people like you, I'd love for you to say that to my fucking face.

I have been tasered and sent to jail for a crime I didn't commit.

Supposedly I caused fear and that is considered domestic assualt.


The cops enter MY house and I tell them to get the fuck out of my house and they fucking taser me.

honestly it is my house, I have no weapons, honestly if the cop was scared of me hurting him fucking take me on like a man and fight me he has 10 of his buddies right behind him.

But I didn;t even hit one person that day, just was verbally pissed off about shit. It should not be illegal to tell cops to "GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY HOUSE".


How about I taser you point blank range with no shirt on in your own home in front of your family end up with blood dripping down your chest and hauled off to jail for 6 hours for causing fear?????


Really fear? honestly like what the fuck kind of vague law is this shit?

Then their use is illegal
This isn't the movies you "Rage against the machine" clown. Police Officers mean business and their lives depend on it as well as your own. If it means the difference between violating your constitutional rights (which I don't believe it does) and the officer going home in the morning without being broken and battered, then guess what he will choose. Not to mention that it will most likely be you that is broken and bruised if he doesn't use the Taser.

I mean business too, and if I am criminally assaulted or illegally detained, I am going to act within the law to defend myself and let a jury sort it out.

And I am the only one that knows for sure whether I am guilty of the accused crime or not unless I was observed committing it by the arresting officer...In other words, don't tread on me and you won't go home to your family in plastic bag
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1312328


So if caught red handed, would you admit that you did it?

Edit

The reason I ask is because most arrests are made based on PC, not a full admission. Do you know how many millions of arrests are made based on PC without actually seeing someone do the crime? Most of them.
