im not trying to villify him, we all make mistakes. i didnt jump in with the whole," all pigs are powertripping lunatics," i know better. but i know
we as people make mistakes, especially when afraid. im not making outlandish assumptions either. i know they didnt have a shotgun taser, but also
know they had an m-26c, so unless he was scared and only trusted his sidearm, or never came within forty feet, hes not exactly in the wrong.
he would probably regret it, but wouldnt be in the wrong. but we dont know the details, so really all we can do is look at the possible situation.
i also made the assumption he pointed it at the police too. (after all, if he has a childish mentality, he may have seen it as a game of cops and
robbers. its one thing to assume that something happened, its another to look at the possible reasons it did. the possible reasons he chose bullets,
not prongs. or possible reasons the man didnt drop his gun
hell, he couldve been TRYING to kill himself by cop. after all, you get cops called walking around pointing what looks like a gun at peoples dogs and
we dont know. but thats no reason to say that the man was innocent, or the cop was wrong.. or whatever. but theres a higher probability that it was a
bad decision on both parts than one being more to blame than the other. i just hold those in law enforcement at a higher standard of decisionmaking
than a mentally retarded man.
to magnum.... good, do what you were trained to do, you are supposed to. im not one of the anti police pricks that frequent these stories as this post
should show. if you go around tazing random people thats not right, u use it in a situation that prevents you from shooting someone and people will
feel much better about it.
theres always gonna be the people that hate anything that even resembles authority, but dont be so quick to put people in that category. let them
slander you for tazing someone that needs it... you are the one that knows you had the mans life in your hands, and let him keep it
