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. http://www.nearlygood.com/files834000/ladytazer.wmv 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.
