    Everyone says crap about their jobs they don`t mean when they are frustrated. Just because he said doesn`t meant he`d actually DO it for that reason. Come on, people.

    From the YouTube Comments "He says, `I think he needs to be tased just for all this work." And the other officer agrees and says, "Yeah""

    I couldn`t understand what he said though.

    Wow, how stupid can he be to say that while being filmed? I think that`s grounds for firing right there, no self control. "All this work?" That`s what you get PAID for. If you don`t think you get enough, find another job, jackass.

    Problem is that it`s from a TV show...Where the people they arrest are allowed to watch the tape, and sign if they want their face shown or not, not to mention the guy knew he was on tape (hard not to with a film crew standing next to you.

    Cops is as real as Speeders...

    At first I was like "hell no" but then I was like "hell, I would".

    If you could get away with it, isn`t there someone you would just love to walk up to and ZAP! I`ve a long list of names.

    "So someone isn`t allowed to make an offhand comment, ever?"

    All the time, EXCEPT for when you`re on camera.

    I mean, there`s a guy filming the thing. If you know they`re there, don`t say stupid crap like that.

    If everyone did this, we`d think everyone`s the world`s nicest person ever until we got screwed over.

    Which is how life works.

    Not a smart thing to say but, we all say something out of place at sometime or another but,it was not a wise thing to say on camera. Protect and serve and leave the punishment to the courts.I`m kind of surprised how edited the show "Cop`s" are how this made it to air. Perhaps it needs to be seen in it`s full context.

    @Zeegrr60 - Seriously? ALL police? Yeah there are a few out there that are straight up jerks, MOST however tend to be nice and at the end of the day they`re people coming home from work like everyone else.

    For people who staight up HATE the police, who love to say "F**K the police" or think they`re all dumb I just say this, I REALLY hope one day you have a loved one hurt and you REALLY need help and NO ONE comes to help you or even cares...And you how what the best part is? I know that wont happen, they will show up, they will help you and you probably wont even thank them.

    dreaco-`Wow, how stupid can he be to say that while being filmed?"

    Nothing wrong with saying it. I say many things during the day that wouldn`t be kosher if put to actions (but then, I have to deal with the work habits of many real idiots.)

    dreaco-`I think that`s grounds for firing right there, no self control."

    Then you think wrong. DID he actually taze the person? If not, he has great self control. Why? Because some people DESERVE to be tazed.

    dreaco-`That`s what you get PAID for.`

    Seeing as the video did not show what occurred PRIOR to that statement, you have no idea if he get`s paid for that, or not. There are many things officers do not get paid for.

    Haha everyone`s getting up in arms about this one throwaway comment.

    You`re telling me you`ve never said you would do anything simply for effect? The guy`s probably a good cop, who was just frustrated with a perp dragging things on for so much longer than they needed to be.

    Haha that is funny... But what`s the problem with taseing? Every cop gets tazed (multiple times mind you) and it`s pretty non lethal.

    Getting tazed hurts like hell...for the few seconds it`s actually happening, after which you feel fine it`s not a long lasting effect, it`s not going cause any damage, and every single police officer who carries one is tazed in training, so they know how it feels too, get over it.

    but more and more frequently cops are abusing the power and becoming more of the punisher of their own free will. Why not get rid of the rest of the judicial system and call them Judge Dreads

    @TKD_Master : I don`t know where you get th generalization "every cop gets tasered". At least in my area, most departments have a "No Tazer" policy in terms of using it on officers - ie you don`t have to get tazered to carry a tazer, and you CANNOT use your tazer on your fellow officers.

    @illios I am good friends with the man who does non-lethal weapons training for officers in TN and VA. In the U.S. at least officers do NOT have to get tazed to be certified. One or two volunteers get tazed and the trainees watch and take notes.

    In fact they specifically tell you not to taze old or obese people who look like they may have heart problems, unless no other cause of action is available, b/c the shock may accidentally kill them.

    McGrendel - What my point is, is that he is a public servant and he is being filmed. He is representative of his police department because of that, and should show some restraint and self control. And maturity. If the person deserved to be tazed, it would have been done in the police officers self defense during a struggle, otherwise who is he or you to say what this person deserves? Do you know all the facts of what is going on? And he gets paid to go out there and do his job, which is what he is doing. He doesn`t get paid to pass judgement or impose punishments. He can think it all he wants, but if he ever does it, it may be you or someone you love he does it to. Then let`s see what you have to say then...
