    Actually taking down a suspect by wrestling them to the ground is EXACTLY how they are trained. I'd like to see how big the guy was compared to her, but if they were comparable in size, I think it was overkill. Only time will tell.

    Was the bitch alone, that's my question. I doubt it. She made a bad decision, and I hope she loses her job over it.

We don't have all the facts, obviously.

    It sure sounds like she over-reacted to me. But how should an officer who has every right to detain someone for questioning (a right she definitely had, since the guy was arrested and charged) handle it when a guy just turns and walks away? As Grip said, a .45 to the kneecap? Should she try to wrestle him to the ground? Should she just forget about it? That's not how they're trained.
    I see where this is going, it's because she's a woman that you're working so hard to protect her. I didn't realize you were that shallow. Now that I do, I will understand your responses better from now on. Thanks.

    Well I would call myself a feminist, and I do not defend this ranger's actions. You taser someone when they are being violent or resisting arrest. You don't taser them as a matter of compliance.

    Excessive use of force. As usual.

    I wish someone who says this would tell me what other action a LEO should take if someone doesn't comply with a lawful order...

    In America, one does not have the right to walk around without your papers.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Authority figures in this nation have totally forgotten their place, which is not surprising at all, given the propensity of Americans to surrender their liberty to an increasingly totalitarian government. We are becoming a servile people.

    I'm not follwoing - at all - the 'feminist' lilt, here.

    Who cares if she was a man or a woman - I would respond in kind of the perp was a male and the aggressor was a female.

    Facing lone males in the park is probably more common than facing lone females. If this female parkranger is SO uncomfortable with men that this is how she handles situations one on one with men then she needs to find a different job. She's obviously not cut out of Ranger cloth I thought they were suppose ot be rugged and capable - not feeble and fearful.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
