Police taser man for trying to prevent his house from catching on fire...
Pinellas Park, Florida -- Daniel Jensen wasn't running from the law, he was trying to protect his home from burning up. Yet, Pinellas Park Police tasered him in the process. Jensen and his attorney say it's an excessive use of force.

Jensen was still shaken and visibly emotional as he retold what happened last Thursday evening. He said being tasered by police has not only impacted him, but it also impacted his children, who saw it all happen.

He described the Pinellas Park Police officers actions as "brutal." He said they showed "no compassion."

"All I remember is laying in water, being electrocuted for saving my home," said Jensen.

The use of equipment is unnecessary unless the officers cannot take the "suspect" down with their bare hands. When I was a LEO that's the way it was. Other officers would call you a rookie for peppering or pulling your straight baton out unless you were in danger.

Why are they so scared?

The article said their law enforcement policy was to only use the tazer if "other control techniques" would likely result in a "physical confrontation" that may cause injury to the officer or person. But the officer must first give a "verbal warning" that he is going to use a taser.

I have YET to see any police officer use their tazers according to this "policy". And doesn't the wording of that policy seem a little vague? If he looks like he's going to hurt himself, TAZE HIM!

If the police ever do give a warning, it would probably sound something like this: "Sir, we see that you are engaging in something that could possibly cause you injury....so we are going to go ahead and GUARANTEE your injury by tazing you!" LICK THE BOOT!

They're not tasering people b/c they're "scared." THey're doing it b/c they believe they are BETTER, STRONGER, MORE IN CHARGE, BETTER INFORMED, BETTER ARMED than we are.

And for the most part, they are right. US citizens have become SHEEPLE, and no less cowed by their government officials than jews in Nazi Germany in the '30's.

Next they'll come to usher you all off to the "camps" and you'll go willingly, just like the jews did, b/c they will tell you it's good for you.

In the next version of these police stories, we will hear the dog was shot in all four legs and thrown into a fire that the police started as the homeowner was handcuffed and eyelids propped open to make him watch and listen to his punishment. The crime will be that he left a tire mark on the curb.

 Quoting: Chip

The stated reason is to protect him from the fire, to get him away from it.

Likewise, the officers wanted to be out of there too if it was dangerous. So they did it in the fastest way, so they could all get out of the dangerous area.

Furthermore, this man was endangering the cops as well as himself by refusing to move out of danger.

I am assuming the police's judgment was correct, that it was too dangerous to stay where he was. If the judgment was wrong, then the conclusion is different.

His house was not burning his neighbors was.

They cannot stop you unless it is an imminent danger and it obviously was not because his house is still standing.

They can try to get him on failure to comply but they admitted they did not follow their own procedures.
