    Police use taser on Kent resident - News

    So let's recap. More police who think they ARE the law and can do whatever they want. And more abuse of the taser. I swear, every day it's a new story with more fucked up events occurring.

    I loved the "psychological resistance" part though. I'm assuming he's a Jedi? :eusa_eh:

    Tasers have their uses...but doesn't it seem that police are reaching for them as the solution of FIRST resort more and more these days?

    Another example of why police simply can't be trusted to have their little torture toys.

    I've never seen a perp who wasn't standing around minding his own business when the police showed up and roughed him up for no reason at all.

    The truth is usually that the guy was out of control, drunk/high, getting abusive and not obeying police commands.
    I interact a fair amount with police. I'd say about 97% are very decent guys (and gals) doing an unpleasant and often boring job frequently out of a sense of duty. About 3% are sleazebags who get off on inflicting their power on someone else.
    In Chicago that percentage is probably reversed.

    Generally speaking, how many times do you have to read a straightforward article before comprehension skills kick in?

    Just wonderin'.
