    Re: Park ranger shoots man with stun gun for walking dogs off-leash

    This makes me wonder why park rangers need to carry tasers.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    She arrested him for walking dogs off their leash, she tazed him for not complying, and resisting arrest.

    Arrested for walking your dog off leash?

    I bet there was a spark between these two.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    There may be more to this story but there is never a scenario where someone should be detained for improperly walking their dogs.

    Some people gotta learn the hard way that crime doesn't pay.

    If the suspect in question is not a threat then the best course would be continued surveillance and a radio call for back-up - especially if you haven't dotted all your I's and crossed all your T's. In this case simply telling him why he was being detained may have solved the problem, though.


    On a side-note, I don't like the idea of following an unlawful order from a cop - but where I grew up you did what a cop told you, lawful or not, as long as the request wasn't illegal (like putting that bag of drugs into my pocket). Why? Because chances are he'll try to add more charges to the list if you give him any grief - and he's more likely to remember your face in the future. Like it or not, LEO's have a huge amount of discretion when it comes to law enforcement. No reason to antagonize them if you can avoid it.

    Nowadays I treat them like they're doing their job and try to put myself in their place. On a traffic stop I keep both hands in plain sight and my car is already shut off by the time they're walking up to it. A lot of cops get shot during traffic stops, they've got plenty of reason to be wary. I want them to be as calm and relaxed as possible - no muss, no fuss. They've got a job to do so let's get it over with and we can both move on.

    When a LEO tells you to "Jump" you ask "How High?" ON THE WAY UP. If you choose not to, I have absolutely no sympathy for anything that happens to you. When you give that LEO a false name, address, etc.... you get even LESS sympathy from me. Hell, in her place I'd probably have SHOT the SOB rather than tasering him.

    Which is 180 degrees to what SHOULD happen. His ass should be headed to jail for failing to follow a lawful command of an LEO.
