    Default How to use a Tazer to maximum effect - man on fire

    Western Australia, a known petrol sniffer is Tazed, catches on fire. Police officers go to his rescue:

    http://news.ninemsn.com.au/national/...r-use-of-taser


    Nowhere in the report does it say that the person of interest attacked or posed a threat to police. Why the use of the TASER dammit? That is going overboard.

    Under those circumstances, he's lucky he didn't get shot. Fucking glue-sniffing brain-rotted freak.

    Call me naive Goon, but can you explain why he was lucky to not get shot?

    Isn't an old fashioned manual restraint (or a good clubbing with a baton around the knees and back) sufficient for a glue sniffer? In fact, are glue-sniffers induced into violent behaviour?

    The police can't be credited with rescuing a bloke they set on fire in the first place.

    To be fair to the pigs, if a dude was running at me with gas and a lighter, I'd probably get a little nervous too.

    Inexcusable, unless you're a member of Spinal Tap.

    I think the taser was the sensible option here. The fool was just unlucky he happened to be covered in petrol fumes, but that's nobody elses fault.

    The cop used the least lethal tool he had which could keep himself safe and then helped the guy afterwards. That's exactly what I want them to do.

The sickness I was talking about was your propensity to kind of reach in and grasp on to something to define someone here. You harangue them about it and manipulate it in to conversations. You do that with every single poster here. You do this until they see things your way. The "correct way". It's vile.

    Seems like the safe choice to me.
