They had every right to remove him from the seat, and possibly the stadium.
They had no justification to use a taser.
Would they have had justification to shoot him?
No they didn't, the taser is for non-lethal use instead of a gun. Not pain compliance.
Out of the 47,000 cops in this country, I would say less than 1% abuse their power. But of course, you see it once and you are convinced that they all do it.
Thank you for brainwashing the ignorant, media.

Well if we would stop with the moving along, maybe we could do something about it.

Well I doubt this is going to help their ticket sales. If you look at the top of the stadium, they keep all the top seats covered to make it look not as empty.

If someone breaks into your house and robs, are you going to call the cops? You're encouraging absolute lawless anarchy.

Not to make this personal, but I am going to be a Police Officer when I come of age.
