How About Another Police Interaction Video



Language warning.

Walk aggressively with an attitude and the cop pulls out a taser. Problem solved.

I'm still not sure why the taser isn't used more often.

Man, he dropped like a rock.

Edit: Uh, a couple of commentors who might be "low information voters" (that's Rush Limbaugh simplistic code for some other term), when did I say I did not approve of the officer's conduct? I'll condone a taser used in this situation every time. It's when a guy like that gets shot in the head is when I have a problem.

Tasers save lives. I still like the earlier ones though, the ones that made 'em scream and writhe about in the dirt. Ride that lightning.

I have no problem with him dropping this screaming fool with a taser.

It calmed him down so what's the problem?

They should always aim for the bawls. Just for entertainment value.

Wow. These comments are... enlightening.

I love the idea of using tasers more often but they do not always work. Just keep that in mind when armchair quarterbacking the actions of the police. It is the same with fingerprints - just because an item was touched doesn't mean a good, workable print was left behind. Touching something smooth like glass should leave a print unless it smudged. Touching something like a brick - good luck getting a working print off that surface.

That old white guy is lucky he wasn't shot...He raised his hand and pointed at the cop; if he was a black or brown dude, he would be pushing up daisies by now.

The guy jumps out of his SUV and gestures like he is pointing a gun at the officer. Yeah you might call that aggressive. Goddamn, you try to spin every goddamn thing in favor of criminals and against law enforcement.

Another example of racist cops and anthropogenic climate change.

At least see why you were pulled over before going bat shit crazy. Stories every day about cops handing out rewards for good driving and such.

that kid acted like the guy in the video above and whipped his hand out. I would have shot his ass in the face once and in the chest twice. Just like a marine. Done. Simper fi

Good thing that wasn't a minority....

Hopefully was also "have a problem" when the guy jumps out and shoots the cop instead of having a finger pistol. Imagine you are the cop and that guy jumps out and points at you like that. THAT's how "innocent" people get shot by cops.

Every interaction between the cops and a perp/suspect/citizen/victim that does not end in death for either side is a win. That's an embarrassingly low standard, but that's the nature of our society these days.

Here's a solution...how about each officer be equipped with a lawyer as a human shield.

Will that shut you idiots up?

7:44 I agree totally that this guy deserved the taser. That being said, I don't at all agree with police pulling people over for anything but enforcing the law. I don't want to be "rewarded" by getting pulled over and taken off schedule (with elevated heart rate) in some sort of off-base police PR campaign. If I'm not doing anything wrong, I consider a traffic stop a violation of my right to be left alone. I opt out of such incentive programs!

Those of you making reference to this guy being "pulled over" by the cop... He wasn't. Police were called by passersby because this guy was parked in the median, out of his car, and walking into the roadway and/or trying to wave down passing cars. This wasn't a traffic stop.

Reeper said...

I'm confused what did this guy do wrong? Getting upset is against the law now?

11:32 read the comment above yours at 10:30 am. I would add he was impeding traffic..against the law...but he was walking out into traffic. He was walking in a charging manner and pointed his fingers at the cop..looked like he had a gun or some sort of instrument to me. Officer made the right choice but if the guy really had a gun it might have been a fatal mistake by the cop to not pull his gun.

Loved it!

The officer is so nonchalant. I think he's done this before...possibly even earlier in the day.

And he did get a "Yes, sir" out of that angry old coot by the end of the video.

Tasering that fool was the funniest thing I have seen in awhile . Should have have him a booster shot.
