    My two words for the day Pussification and Commiefornia. We need A DP word log book thread so we can easily go back and get these Jewels when ever we need them.

    And if you're built like a football player with all the skills and athleticism of say Urlacher or Lewis; I may agree with you. But changes are very very slim. And certainly the drunk dumbass they were chasing wasn't no Ray Lewis. So again, that argument is BS.

    So instead, we have a device which can cause death vs. a low speed tackle or take down with much less change of overall injury and pain. For trespassing with no threat to others; I'm going to say that tazering is a bit over the line

Go look up some statistics that don't come from your paranoid anarchy blog websites on the tazer for more info, you know, learn something.
    Mmm, yes. Very controlled circumstances vs. field environment. Yup...that's valid.

    If he got tackled and if his arm got broken, that's part and parcel to the whole trespass thing. But for the speeds and forces we're talking about; that's highly unlikely.

    But hey, thanks for throwing in that nice little hyperbole. Does wonders for your intellectual honesty.

    There is zero need to risk fatal or serious injury from overloading one's own electrical system when a simple tackle/take down would suffice. The human body was designed to take some bumps and bruising. We're not made for electrical short circuit.

    Would you rather take a tackle or french kiss a light socket? I've played plenty of tackle football, I've been electrocuted too (part and parcel with the whole physics things). I'll take the tackle any day of the week.

    I think he's already faced one charge...

    They couldn't even catch him.... So how can you say that a "low speed tackle" was going to happen????? Besides, I already stated , now for the 3rd damned time... that the use of the tazer was not necessary in this situation...



    Mmm, yes. Very controlled circumstances vs. field environment. Yup...that's valid.
    Whats different about it? Do you know?
    Or art thou talking out of thy ass again.

    Big Fat Guy landing on you. Not exactly all that unlikely. Besides, big fat guy could get injured in the process. But "thats his job to get hurt" right? Thats a douchebag way to think.

    But hey, thanks for throwing in that nice little hyperbole. Does wonders for your intellectual honesty.
    Its the truth... sadly. Just look at your signature.

    Blah blah blah blah. More talking out of your rear. You don't know anything about being tazed except that a few freak accidents happened and your in knee jerk reaction mode.




    Would you rather take a tackle or french kiss a light socket? I've played plenty of tackle football, I've been electrocuted too (part and parcel with the whole physics things). I'll take the tackle any day of the week.
    Go get tazed, then come talking. You don't know the first thing about it.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
