I can't stand watching these vids because I get so mad!!
Hand guns dont need to be banned from citizens, tazers need to be banned from cops!
I suppose the officer will cite officer safety as the reason for using a taser, but what happened to waiting for back up or restraining the individual first?

I have met a number of people with severe mental problems that walked around and looked completely normal. The mans reactions could have been attributed to drugs or alcohol. Again you are assuming like everyone else so eager to denounce the cop.
Whoever above me said that it seemed like the guy shooting video was just as much to blame as the cop is certainly correct. He was salivating at the chance to see the man tazed and if he really cared would have informed the cop before the 'disabled man' was on the ground.
The cop should have waited for back up at that point, but for some reason thought it would be better to just shoot him.
