    Note: the woman is 7 months pregnant. Trying to forcibly remove her could be a greater danger to her and her pregnancy than tasing.

    I understand where the attitude comes from. You spend your days dealing with bull**** and idiots, much of the public thinks you're a piece of crap, you have to deal with your own personal life, you aren't getting paid a whole lot and you have to balance all the other annoying and dangerous stuff that comes with the job. It's easy to understand, but understanding doesn't amount to me thinking that it's okay.

    Oh ok....no one is going to tase you for refusing to let them in with no warrant..UNLESS...they believe there is a crime in progress inside your home...

People form opinions of police where they live...Police do not operate the same in every state every town...and what you read in the paper like this case...is a drop in the bucket compared to all that happens all over the country...the sheer amount of arrests..and incidents..
    I am not arguing that point and you are absolutely correct that almost every time some one is tased by the police, it is justified and legal. That does not change the fact that there are times when it is not justified and legal.

    aye.... I guess i'm weird in that I don't care about being arrested and taken down to the precinct, it's never bothered me.
    some folks are more apt to simply comply in order to get out of being arrested...I just do my thing, do what's required of me, and that's it... if i'm arrested, i look forward to getting in front of the judge.

    I much prefer dealing with street cops than CO's though...i've never met a CO that wasn't a complete asshole.
