    This could have also been posted in the humor forum.

    I like how the defendant stood up (as if on cue) and started yelling when the prosecutor noted that he was agressive towards the arresting officer.

    Colonel Yates: " That's why we issue Tasers, they're a less than lethal weapon, ahhh, no one gets hurt and it stops the agressive action immediately."

    Well Colonel you're one for three...

    NOT a lethal weapon?

    The chances of being injured or killed with a taser is a lot less than if the cops were to wrestle you down or just flat out shoot your ass.

    If you don't want to be tased don't fuck with the police.
    Yeah! They might be wrong but they hold the taser.
    The cop who arrested me when I was twenty two was a complete dick but I still did not argue and I don't feel bad for these career criminals getting their ass tased.

    I agree, but I believe the point is knowing when to question their actions and stand up to their abuse of power (not referring to all police).

    When they have the taser or gun out, then is NOT the time to do so.

    Or shoot you, which was about the only option they had for a long time ...

    Everyone forgets the simple fact, they risk their lives almost every day to protect a huge number of people from the few idiotic criminals. Of course they make mistakes, but blaming them all for a few mistakes or a very few bad cops (the only ones you hear about in the media) is just plain stupid. People hate the cops until they need them.
