Remember that cop that ordered the naked guy to be tased? I guess the guilt got to him.;

"The other, you, believes that since life has no meaning after death, that we should live our lives bringing as much joy to ourselves as possible, no matter who we hurt, because when we die none of it matters anyway."

I`m not sure what to tell you except that life isn`t as black and white as you`d like it to be. You`re more than free to generalize how you please about anyone on-line, but spare everyone else your pretentious bullsh*t. You can think you`re right, but don`t expect others to, least of all me.

"Even if the things you said were true, what good does it do to say them?"

Not everything someone says needs necessarily have philanthropic intent, f*ckstick. Sometimes I get pissed off - can you deal with that?

"im done with you."

Oh joy. Piss off, pissant.

You did say "F*ck him, good riddance." I think in just about any rational human beings book that makes you a disgusting virus in society.

There are 2 kinds of atheists: one kind believes that since our lives have no meaning after our deaths, that we should try our best to bring as much good to our society as possible before our deaths.
The other, you, believes that since life has no meaning after death, that we should live our lives bringing as much joy to ourselves as possible, no matter who we hurt, because when we die none of it matters anyway.
I guess its your life choice to be a monster, but your attitude does no one any good other than perhaps to help confirm to yourself the worthlessness of society.
Even if the things you said were true, what good does it do to say them?
Just proves the internet d*ckwad theory: normal person+audience+anonymity=total f*cking d*ickwad
im done with you.

"although it was EXTREMELY stupid, he should have been put down, not killed."

I said nothing about what *should* have happened; I only commented on what *did* happen.

"Yes, people that kill themselves aren`t making a rational choice."

Bullsh*t, suicide can be a completely rational decision.

"But don`t forget about their families, their friends, the others who are affected."

I didn`t forget, opie. I`m not likely to. I`m intimately aware of what it`s like for families or groups of people to miss a person who committed suicide. I just don`t really have any sympathy for a guy who is responsible for a wrongful death, one that simply should not have happened. I just don`t. Especially when it`s an authority type like a cop, in whom we are asked to place our trust.

"what a horrible and arrogant thing to say."

Seeing how so many problems can be laid at the feet of stupid people, I fail to see how.

I have been visiting here for years, but am not much of a commenter. The comments of a few people here are so over the top that I disgusted (not suprised, because I spent many years dealing with people of their mentality).

Caboose117, I really, really, really hope that karma finds you. I am assuming that the last life or death decision you made in a split second was whether you "wanted fries with that" or not.

Good luck with life, next time you are in peril or need help, your option of calling 911 should be taken away.

Steve41, your niavety and complete lack of understanding of what a confrontation is is astounding. Please go spit in a Chinese policeman`s face. The beating you will get will serve you well to understand world politics.

Mindless, your name pretty much sums up your undertanding of this situation.

I am disgusted by some of the comments here, obviously from people who have no clue what it is like to have to deal with things like naked mental`s dail

Aaand it ALWAYS has to turn into an American thing. Thanks, guys. Thanks.

Over, even if it`s his life, there are still people that loved him and now are mourning him. Yes, people that kill themselves aren`t making a rational choice. But don`t forget about their families, their friends, the others who are affected.

I really hate stupid people... wow overmann, what a horrible and arrogant thing to say. You would probably never say something as horrible and inhuman as that in public, and if you would, then you are just a self centered, despicable creature. The guy had a wife and kids... just... wow. There is no excuse or reasoning that could possibly make up for what you said.

"he should have been put down, not killed."

put down as in demoted, not killed. before somebody misinterprets that.

"
F*ck him, good riddance. How stupid does someone have to be to order a man, stark naked and standing at a potentially lethal height, to be tased? Don`t they appreciate what exactly happens to one`s muscle whilst being tased? I hate stupid people."

Everyone has their moments. Maybe the naked man posed a threat? maybe he didn`t get his breakfast and lacked sleep? who knows, but that`s harsh. the accidental death of an insane man should also equal in the death of a (used to be) competent policeman? from what I read, he did a good job until this latest incident. although it was EXTREMELY stupid, he should have been put down, not killed.

or maybe i`m not getting sarcasm here, because as we all know, text does not convey sarcasm well. as always.

I think this is the footage of the fall. I do agree, really stupid judgement call on the polices side. He obviously was going to fall if he was tased.

"I think it`s such a shame that folk like Overman have to come up with such nasty comments."

I`m sorry if I offended you, Rat5Rule, but I just *really* hate stupid people. Don`t forget, though - the cop`s suicide would have been perfectly appropriate in Japan.

ahh my friend`s dad told me this story after he told me what happened today on duty....he and his partners had to drag out this guy who chainsawed BOTH his hands off.....how the fxck do you chainsaw BOTH your hands?! i mean unless you put it between your legs and try to cut the other one off
well anyways so they had to drag him out of the house, the thing was was that they couldnt grab his hands because well first off one is chainsawed off and the other is only hanging on by a flab of skin....

fxcking psycho....blood was everywhere on the walls

I feel worse for the cop than for the mental guy... I mean I know that mental disabilities suck (I have mild cerebral palsy) and I know depression sucks (I`ve been treated for it) but both stemming from the same incident is just, just terrible.

Although the cop did make a wrong decision, and falling 10 feet while immobile can kill you if you land on your head (as this man did) I still feel worse for the one who went through being responsible for another`s death and then willingly took his own life.

Mustard93, his age was 46, and he was on the force for 21 years, thus him being a 21 year veteran.

Steve41high that really isn`t a case of "crazy American police with too much power". That was more of a case of general lack of common sense.

I mean you don`t blame a doctor for suggesting a proven treatment that in fact kills the patient. The doctor made a bad call, and that happens all the time, and not just in America.

Plus not all policemen are asshats. I`ve known quite a few policemen that are the nicest people you would meet, but you don`t want to mess with them.

Yes, it was a bad call to tazer him. Yes, there was no way for the guy to brace himself, or stop himself from landing on his head.

What a bad outcome from a bad decision
