Chiming in a bit late, but I gotta remark to djwajda. The advancements in technology in the past decade have allowed people to record, sometimes secretly and sometimes with the police officer fully aware, the behavior of cops interacting with citizens and the plethora or horror stories, shocking videos, and appalling violent behavior that has become almost the norm, discrediting the concept of their job, to protect and serve. What we see more and more, is middle aged individual men looking for any excuse to beat the hell out of someone and get away with it. I am all with oldollie on this, that cop should spend about 5-10 years in prison and learn his lesson like any other American citizen would. And they say that no one is above the law. Thats' total bull s-hit. All you have to do is wear a badge and blind justice doesn`t see a thing.

-As I have stated earlier in this thread the actual tasering was extreme. It's horrible that she nearly died and I have always felt, even as a former law enforcement officer that tasers are far more dangerous than they claim. But as others have stated they are an alternative. Do some officers need more training in their use? Hell yes. But do not condemn all on the actions of a few as many have done and not just in this thread. That officer will be reviewed and more than likely will receive some sort of action due to the excessive nature of the incident as far as the taser is concerned.
For you and so many others to be able to sit there and say with 100% certainty in your mind that the cops were completely wrong is laughable at best. Just like I can`t sit here and say they were 100% in the right because they weren`t. But despite what happened to her don`t go making it sound like this woman did absolutely nothing wrong and that these officers did absolutely everything wrong.
