1. They obviously never gave the kid a chance to actually communicate otherwise they would have realized he wasn't being a sarcastic kid
2. Just because a kid "disrespects" a cop, doesn't give said cop the right to taze the kid, pepper spray him after he freaks out when something he
didn't understand happened to him, and then punch him in the chest and leg.
3. TAZERS ARE MEANT TO REPLACE DEADLY FORCE. They aren't meant to MAKE people be obedient.
3: Incorrect. Tasers are not
meant to replace deadly force. There is no replacement for deadly force. Period.
They are meant to provide an intermediary step in a use of force continuum before hard hand, impact and chemical. Where that lies is the individual
department's SOP but ALWAYS before chemical as most OC propellants are alcohol based and there is risk of fire.
They are also specifically employed to force compliance on a non-compliant subject in a safer manner than an impact weapon or hard hand can provide.
I've been Tased numerous times as an instructor. It hurts for a few seconds then you're fine. This assumes you are in good health and have not
ingested stimulants. If you have there is risk of heart attack- the same as if you were in a fight (hard hand).
BTW- I'll take a Tasing over a hard hand strike, baton strike or pepper spray any day of the week. I HATE PEPPER SPRAY!!
Damn stuff runs down your body the next day when you shower and when it hits the package.... I scream like a little girl
