    Man Shot With Taser By L.A. Deputy Dies

    This comes on the heels of many days of protest over the Police shooting and killing a knife brandishing Guatemalan National who had been threatening the life of a woman minutes before.

    There have been calls for the review of Police shoot to kill policay and questions asking why no use a Taser and then this. Another death by Taser. Of course the suspect was drunk as was the knife carrying man, when he was shot.

    This goes to show you need to learn the language and listen to the police because they don't play games with crazies.

    The protesters are out of line on this one.

    In Arizona there is a limit as to how close you let the guy with a knife get before you shoot them, and it's about 15 feet. Any closer and they might get to you before you can react, and if that happens you might be killed.

    Some people who have heart problems could die very easy from a Taser attack.


    Taser Death: Man Shot With Taser By L.A. Deputy Dies - ktla.com
    LA MIRADA -- A man who was shot with a taser by an L.A. County Sheriff's deputy died Saturday.

    According to preliminary information from the L.A. County Sheriff's Headquarters Bureau, the incident happened just before 1:00a.m. in the 14700 block of Firestone Blvd and Trojan Way.

    The man was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

    Exactly what led up to the man being shot with a taser gun is still being investigated by sheriff's department officials and has yet to be released.

    "Whenever an Officer-Involved Shooting (with a Taser) occurs involving Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies, and it results in a fatality, multiple independent investigations immediately begin at the scene," according to a statement released from the Headquarters Bureau.

    The probes will be conducted by a number of agencies including the Los Angeles County District Attorney, the Department of Coroner, as well as the Sheriff's Homicide Bureau and their Internal Affairs Bureau.

    Honestly, if they have a knife, the officer should be using their gun anyway.

    I'm smelling a lawsuit, but I hope the "knife brandishing Guatemalan National who had been threatening the life of a woman" will close that lawsuit if it has its day in court.... <_<

    Where did it ever say, promote for the common defence, and provide the general Welfare..... Please don't mix up the two....

    Screw tasers. If you are stupid enough to go up to anyone with a weapon or heck even go up to someone in a threatening manner that individual being threatened should use deadly force.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    This is why cops who use their tasers on people for stupid reasons should be fired.
    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.

    And that's the unfortunate thing about a tazer... it's not perfect.

    But let me get this straight... People are protesting the shooting of a knife wielding maniac... because he was Gautemalan? And they think it was racially motivated?

    I'm sorry, how was this cop tasering for stupid reasons?
    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.

    You understand that a knife can kill you, right?

    Unless that cop had his partner nearby with a firearm drawn and aimed, his choice to use the tazer was putting his own life in mortal danger. Tazers have a short range and are not 100% effective. If the darts don't penetrate properly, the weapon will fail to function. (it needs a completed circuit) There's not enough time to reload the tazer or even to drop it and draw your gun, there's a "30 foot rule" to think about. If your gun is in your holster, a person within 30 feet can close range before you have time to draw, aim, and fire.

    I'm the first to rail about dirty cops when they actually do something that could be considered brutality, but the general public has a really messed up idea about what cops can actually do to apprehend someone. You don't shoot for legs or arms, you don't try to disarm someone with a knife, you don't get into a grappling fight with someone you don't outweigh by 100 pounds. Because trying to do those things can get you killed.
