    I'll start off with My favorite .. just showing yet again . What great public servants we have.

    Marcy Noriega, a California police officer decided to tase a suspect in the back of her car when he became uncontrollable and started kicking at the windows. Noriega drew her taser from her belt and fired it at the man. Unfortunately for the crook, the officer had accidentally drawn her gun instead, and she shot him in the chest – killing him. The city is now suing the taser company, arguing that any reasonable officer could mistakenly draw and shoot their gun instead of their taser. They are suing for the full costs of the wrongful death lawsuit which the man’s family has filed against the city.
    Isn't it a great feeling to know that any reasonable officer of the law …. can't tell the difference between a taser and a real gun ??? Really makes me feel secure in our law enforcement people on the job don't it ?
