    You have read a piece of a snippet that contains a small amount of information and believe somehow you know what the condition was at the scene. A father would rush headlong into an inferno in an attempt to save a child. That doesnt mean it would not be a suicidal effort.

    ****in bull****. If a person wants to sacrifice themselves to save another who the **** are the police to stop them?!?!? These cops are ****ing with instinct and they are lucky to be alive.

    Stepping away and thinking about this so more, I'd have to REALLY see what happened to make a decision for certain.

    I am certain he shouldn't of have been tasered after cuffed.

    But Missouri police officers tasered the distraught dad before he rushed into flames that even firefighters, dressed head to toe in gear, had to back away from.
    By the time fire officials reached Miller’s son, Riley, it was too late

    From what this says dad had lost his mind and was going to be a dead father.

    My ex once managed to start a raging inferno in our house cooking with oil. While the fire department was in bound she tried to rush back into the house, she was delirious with guilt. I had to tackle her in the street to prevent her from getting herself dead. A neighbor handed me his fire extinguisher and i went back in and put the fire out, but I have fire fighting experience and not only survived with no injury but saved the house.

    I'm going to say this, while I understand the outrage, I think the cops did what they had to do to stop a man from killing himself. People CAN lose their minds when faced with tragedy, and as tragic as this is, as horrible as this situation is, the cops prevented it from being worse from what I have read.
    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.

    That's really ivory tower stuff to say. You were not there and it's absurd to say you would have went in against the advice of the fire department, who are some of the bravest people I've met.

    Not absurd at all. I think I know myself better than you.

    So you ignore all your training as a paramedic?

    Whether its absurd or not, you're still sitting on an ivory tower with little info.

    I was pointing out how Libbos are contrary on every damn thing.

    Just being wrong on occassion doesn't make you a Libbo.

    In this particular case, this guy had more balls than the firefighters.
