    You always hear about cops going beyond normal procedures. The tazer imo is the worst thing that has been added to a cop's arsenel. ITs non-lethal but you feel like you want to die after you get tazed. I'd rather get maced then tazed. Add that to the fact that the officers use it as a threat instead of defense. Take a look at this video.

    The bad part is about mid way through when he starts to taze her.

    He said she tried to swing at here. Two things, she obviously didnt try to swing at the cop. You can see that on video. Second, wtf is that 100lb lady going to do to those two, 250lb men that she would need to be subdued by electrocution?

    Look, cops are needed but they are there to "Protect and Serve." Who the fuck is he protecting or serving by electrocuting someone for a speeding ticket? When you give cops too much leeway they will take every inch they can. You think the government takes away personal freedoms? They merely create the laws. ITs the cops, lawyers and judges that take the freedoms away.

    in the singular vs the plural as you addressed this singular issue...also abuse of the weapon of choice whether a "tzaer" or firearm is a individual issue and should not be addressed to all who wear the badge! :huh:

    You actually think the COPS were out of line?? She lipped off, didn't do as she was told, they warned her *repeatedly*, and you think they're the ones with a problem?

    I think not. She got what she deserved (and should have gotten an additional fine for resisting arrest).

    Are you guys serious? She is arguing with the cop. Big fucking deal. there were 2 of them there and for what? Is she some mass murderer? Is she a threat to society? Is she even a threat to the cop standing there? No she got pulled over for a speeding ticket.

    How about this one.

    A 68 year old woman who "disobeyed an officer's orders" gets tazered, 5 times in the police station and no one has a problem with it.

    This is the problem i see with our society. We are so willing to give up the simple freedoms in life. When was the last time someone said, "We need less Cops" at a township meeting? In my township of Bristol, a suburb of philadelphia, it encompasses an area about 25 square miles. We have 68 cops and 47 police cars. They just signed a contract to higher 12 more cops by the end of the year. For what? Do we have an enormous crime rate? Do we have killers and drug dealers and rapists roaming the streets? NO. We have honest citizens trying to do their best to get to work on time and come home to dinner on time. Highering 12 more cops doesnt make us any safer from real crime. It just hassles the honest people more. More traffic tickets. More parking tickets. More cops sitting around doing nothing while getting paid twice as much as most people in the community make.

    Doesnt anyone have a problem with this picture?

    I had no problems with traffic cops here. I pull over, hand over the papers
    and dont say anything else. They come back, tell me what supposely
    I did wrong and let me go.I usually follow the speeding limit and am
    a more relaxed driver. Fullstop at the stop sign is what they usually
    put on you to check up on people. Maybe its Idaho, but they have
    always been polite and never tried to stick me with tickets yet.

    Tazer are a double edged sword. Cops need em to take out real bad
    guys. But they use them too to intimidate and abuse normal citizens.
    Seem harsh to shock that stupid lady. Its equivalent to me to beating her up with with their baton. Overkill imo. But because we still enjoy the freedom
    of possessing guns I can understand the cops mindset to not take any chances and use the Tazer. I guess better awareness training for cops
    might help. Dont taze kids or old people. The rest of us can simply be polite.

    At first glance, this might appear to be excessive force. Before passing judgement though, consider the alternatives. The cops could have used hands-on physical force to remove that woman from her car, gotten into a violent wrestling match with her resulting in possible broken bones or open wounds that might pass an infection to someone uninfected. They could have used pepper spray I guess, but that's kinda the same thing as the Taser. They could have just let her go, but then word gets out that if you make a fuss, the cops let you go, and then noone obeys traffic laws.

    The taser or pepper spray for that matter makes it possible to subdue someone without having to resort to a brawl. While it may appear to be cruel, the effects are temporary and a safer procedure than a tackle with a choke hold.

    There is an additional positive side effect to the taser also. I'll wager the next time that woman is pulled over she won't be so quick to mouth off and if the officer asks her to get out of the car, I'll guarantee she'll do so cooperatively.

    I've been pulled over and never been treated with the respect he initially showed her, especially for her opening the door before he even gets to her window. And I never had a problem with it, because being a cop is tough. If I get caught speeding, I know I deserved it and own up to it. She's running around with a suspended license speeding, and then thinks that acting indignant is the wise choice. I hope she enjoyed the tase, it's better than a nitestick to the kidneys.

    She completely disrespects him as he's trying to radio in her license plate. Then she thinks she knows the law better than an officer of it. And all throughout it he maintains excellent composure.

    She wouldn't have gotten more than just a speeding ticket if she wouldn't have been a bitch from the start, but she had to be all righteous, so he tacked on the broken light and the seatbelt and the broken windshield. She instantly adopted this all cops are shit attitude and completely deserved all that she got. People like this make a cop's job so difficult.

    My favorite part is when all her moaning and whining starts a dog barking.

    People need to learn that if you get caught speeding, you need to accept responsability and own up to it. Not only that, but her license was suspended on top of that. She won't learn though, she'll think she got tazed cuz they were white and she was black, and she'll get pulled over again, and tazed again, because she just can't get any justice. Pathetic.
