Re: Don't tase me bro!


Glad I didn't have to do that.

The direct-in-the-face pepper spray about killed me. I was leaking fluid from everywhere on my head for 30 minutes.

Glad nobody filmed it.

Don't tase me sonny, don't tase me!

Chief: Tasing 76-year-old probably not 'best way'
Aug 11, 9:10 PM (ET)

GLENROCK, Wyo. (AP) - Glenrock Police Chief Tom Sweet said two officers "probably didn't do things the best way" when they used a Taser on a 76-year-old man driving an antique tractor in a parade. Sweet spoke at a packed town hall meeting Monday, nine days after Bud Grose was hit with a Taser during the town's annual Deer Creek Days.

The officers are on paid leave while state Division of Criminal Investigation agents investigate.

Mayor Steve Cielinski and most of the Town Council apologized to residents and asked for patience. Cielinski promised the findings will be made public.

"If we have to stand up and take it on the chin, we will," Cielinski said.

State investigator Tim Hill has said the two officers contend Grose disobeyed orders. Grose hasn't commented publicly, however, and investigators have not disclosed many details of what happened.

Sweet originally said it didn't appear any policies were violated.

Some at Monday's meeting called for the two officers to be fired. Several people who witnessed the event told the crowd police repeatedly shocked Grose with a taser.

"Those two were the most out-of-control officers I've ever seen in my life," said Scott McWilliams, a witness who said he was shoved by one of the officers. "These two guys got to go."

Mike Pyatt, a former Glenrock police officer, called on town leaders to make changes at the department.

"We will hold you accountable," he said.

Sweet, however, said he won't act before receiving the DCI report, expected by the beginning of next week.

"I don't want to take a knee-jerk reaction now," he said.

Seems our cops are unable to diffuse situations these [sign in to see URL] straight to the violence. Maybe it simply matches our society as a whole.

Damn, That's sad. I'm surprised that old lady didn't get her hip broken or die from a head injury.
 I realize there were kids around, and the officer had the priority duty of protecting them and the rest of the public-- but surely that officer should have realized that there was little chance of that old lady making a "fast move" on anyone.
(And that's if she had even wanted to, which she didn't. She was just scared and confused)

That situation could have been diffused with a lot less force than a body slam.

One has to wonder how differently that would have been handled if that was an old white lady standing in the Draegers parking lot in Menlo Park..
