The cop probably didn't know the tazer was firing that many separate shots. Tazers don't make a "bang" sound, or anything like that.
if you pull the trigger 16 times in ten seconds, it will fire 16 times. But visually it looks the same and sounds the same as if it had fired only once.
But also if the target doesn't respond right away, it's hard to tell whether it's because they're resisting the effect, or whether it's because the tazer didn't fire.

If ANY law enforcement officer doesn't "know" how many doses of lethal force they are administering...then they should NOT be law enforcement officers anymore...particularly when we're talking about a one sided exchange! After all, it's not like the victim was shooting back!
Clearly, you need to reevaluate your statements! Seriously.
ETA...if it was a gunfight, that would be different, but...it WASN'T!!
