i dont like french politics or society as much as the next southerner, but as a southerner i can respect the spirit of fighting for whats right against the odds. i can respect the fact that they will not stand for a govenrment that balances its budget on the shoulders of the middle class while the politicians sit back in their louis vuitton arm chairs sipping Chateau Lafitte. much like we Americans allow politicians to vote on raises for themselves, while they raise taxes for us...

You are not from the south. No red-blooded Southerner would sympathise with the French, no matter how valid the argument.

You sir, are a fraud.

jayebee - What a rediculous abuse of power.

Tasers were implemented to be a non lethal alternative to a gun. So basically this cop deemed that in this situation, he would have needed to shoot the guy. What a load of crap.

^this

tasers are not to be used as a middle ground for when you cant catch a naked jogger and when you cant shoot one, they arent for 85+ year old senile grandmas, they arent for people who speak out against john kerry, will you peope wake the drat up and feel the grip of a totalitarian government around your throat before you watch your children turn blue and bloat, we are already raising a country of pansies at least wake u to see the bullpoo you are fed daily tasers are bullpoo, they are an intimidation tool for the masses. cops are NOT always right and they should NOT always be respected when most of them are crooked and looking to screw you over drat the police. im sorry to say but france has more balls than us.

States` cops are so fat and slow, that they have to use tasers to beat the odds against a naked, skinny 18 year old.
Good for you.

@Luniz82 - Just ribbing you brother. We all appreciate your intellectual sacrifices for the sake of the Big Mac...just hold the spit next time.

It`s all about calculation of risk. An 18 year old who is jogging isn`t going to die from a cardiac arrhythmia. At least not any more likely than being tackled on a sidewalk for resisting arrest. He would`ve gotten a night in jail and a slap on the wrist.

@Norris.
While I agree that the officer was "in the right" in this case, I wouldn`t go as far as saying "as usual"

as usual, cop is in the right

1) dumbass breaking the law
2) turned on lights, several warnings
3) Tazed his dumb ass. (literally? lol)

Guys just lucky they didnt pepperspray him too like the cops here do :P

Regardless if the guy was breaking the law he was not putting anyone in danger of being injured the use of a TAZER was to much. But because you hear about them tazing people everyday people come to expect it from cops. It is excessive and an abuse of power. People die on a regular basis from being tazed it should never be a easy choice but it seems this slab of bacon had no seconds thoughts about it. @toider man you hurt my feeling say I work at mcdonalds. I dont see what the big deal is someone has to serve your fat ass your food.

Hah, my opinion, better the tazer than the pepper spray. I`ve never been pepper sprayed, but I`ve been tear gassed, and that stuff makes any and all mucosa membranes burn, ALL OF THEM!

if he just pulled up and tazed the guy it would be one thing, but the cop followed protocol and it was either this or tackle him and i`m guessing it`s better to get shocked than have a huge guy bring you down to the pavement.

On one hand, I agree that force should only be used in situations where there is no other option, but at the same time, if you are informed that a police officer is going to use a taser on you and you do not stop, then it`s half your fault.

Regardless of whether or not it was excessive, he was warned that it was going to happen. I mean, getting a high-voltage shock from touching a fence seems excessive for touching a fence, but if you see a sign that says "WARNING: HIGH VOLTAGE" and you touch it, that`s your fault.

I don`t think it was an abuse of power, because he asked the jogger to stop numerous times, warned him that if he didn`t he would use his taser, and the naked dude still refused to stop. It`s not like he just pulled it out right away and just slammed the guy. And honestly...he was tasered...he wouldn`t be more injured than if he cop had tackled him, which I`m pretty sure no one would consider an abuse of power in this situation.

Luniz. Please tell me how this is an abuse of power? The streaker clearly was existing arrest and violating the law. Last time I checked you weren`t allowed to run through a residential area completely naked. The kid was an idiot and the cop was doing his job.

"Man I hate cops we need to get these LOSERS out of a position of power and behind the counter and McDonalds where they belong."

I`m surprised you would want to work with them in your chosen profession. I wouldn`t wish McDonald`s servitude upon even the worst of chumps.

If the cop gave ample warning, then he was in the right. Indecent exposure laws exist for a reason: they help spare the 50% of the population that doesn`t want to see your uglies.

Honestly the cop didn`t look too out of shape, sure a little on the heavy side but not obese or anything. The jogger was just faster than him so the cop really had no choice but to use the taser from the looks of the video

Is there anything funnier than watching someone get tazered? Unless of course it is you.

@jsatan:

Tell me this.

Would you rather be tackled FROM BEHIND, at a full sprint by a 200+ lb cop who is pissed that you won`t listen to him...

...or get tazered for 5 seconds.

I choose tazered. I wouldn`t want to risk sliding on the ground and my junk getting rubbed off by the concrete lol.

@snunicycler, a favor? That’s the problem, a 200lb cop shouldn`t have to tackle him I`m sure such a "athletic" person would be well able & skilled to subdue someone before pulling a tazer, what do you think other countries use? I`m not saying that sometimes a tazer isn’t the best option, but perhaps due to the way policing is done over in the UK I`m shocked that this is the norm for someone who doesn’t want to ware clothes. But back to your point, which is the most dangerous, I can`t tell you the last time I read an article about someone being tackled and resulting in death, but on the other hand I know of several tazer related incidences (yes we play rugby over here without padding, lol).

@jsatan...

no the cops gun is for personal police protection, the tazer is for non compliance, because it`s not supposed to be lethal but it does make the suspect cooperate. watch any video of tazers being used (outside of demonstration) and you`ll see the suspect being non compliant, most of the time.

Am I missing something here, but isn`t a tazer for personal police protection, when did it become the norm for non-compliance? O` that`s right when the USA became the new Germany... Or maybe it was a lard ass cop that could keep up and thought what the heck. Waste of lard if you ask me.

Nothing wrong here (once again).

He was told to stop, and warned that he would be tazered if he did not comply.

zombieland: They`d beat them with batons, Use a choke hold, and if it involved the suspect with a deadly weapon they`d likely shoot them.

In light of those previous methods, The taser is much better and has saved suspects from much worse injuries and even death.

[quote]somebody remind me please, what did cops do before they had tasers?[/quote]

Used other weapons or simple bodily force, though probably not as much.

It`s very easy to think of a taser as a magic stun spell that`s completely safe, so cops are bound to use it in circumstances where in the past they wouldn`t have used a weapon or physical force.

This is not legal for cops here. It is violence. Cops here have guns - but they are only used on criminals with guns.

To electrocute a person, a terrifying and dangerous physical punishment, without no legal process - as a sanction for being naked in public is completely insane and reminds me of a dictatorship.

This would have not happened in Oregon. Not because the cops don`t taser people- believe me, they LOVE their tasers here. It`s just that we don`t have archaic laws against public nudity.
