Sorry for bringing up another taser thread but this one is from the UK which is suprising for me as I normally hear about this kind of thing going on
in the states!
A few things beg to question from this,
Just how exactly do you "accidentally" shoot someone with a taser ? I always love quotes like this where people in authority use the whole "it was an
accident" excuse in order to cover up their stupidity or intent to harm
Another point to raise is this quote
"The man appeared to become aggressive and the officer removed his Taser in accordance with protocol."
What exactly constitutes aggression ? Getting angry because you're accused of being guilty of something when you're actually innocent ? The guy had a
right to be pissed off with the cops if he was indeed aggressive, as he states himself he wasn't aggressive but again it's all subject to opinion,
what the man thought wasn't aggressive may be considered aggressive to others.
However if it's protocol for officers to pull their tasers & risk "accidentally" tasing innocent people because they are pissed off for being accused
about things they haven't done then it's just wrong. Yet another step further down into an Orwellian 1984 police state where you cannot do anything
without state approval.
