Poster: I want my mommy
Subject: RE: Cop who tasered woman till she braindead is cleared...smh at Florida.
I love threads like this!
First off: Has anybody commenting on this story ever been a police officer? I didn't think so.
Second: Does anybody commenting on this story know how a taser really works, and how it affects a human body? I didn't think so.
Third: Has anybody on this thread, while on duty, ever had to arrest a deranged drug addict? I didn't think so.
Fourth: Anybody commenting on this thread been trained in defensive tactics, as well as this Department's/Florida's use of force continuum? I didn't think so.
It is unfortunate what happened to this woman. The armchair experts on this board can whine and say "The pig should have done this/that" "Boo Hoo, we live in a police state" or "It's a cover-up! Conspiracy!" when they have never worked in law enforcement, nor have any idea what governs an officer's use of force decision making.
No officer goes into work anticipating or wanting to kill someone. In the event that they do, even if the situation was cut and dry, they will be sued. They will be sued for any number of things. And in the age of dashboard video cameras and cell phone cameras, their actions will be recorded. So when it is time to go hands on with someone, you can bet 9/10 officers are going to make sure they're doing it by their department's standards.
It is easy for the sniveling, hyper sensitive weasels on this board to criticize an officer from the safety of their home computers. It's not going to be them jumping out on a corner of dope dealers, working a wreck on a highway while people are buzzing their doors doing 80+ MPH, working a knock down, drag out bloody domestic, stopping a vehicle at 2AM that just left the scene of a burglary... you get the picture.
Do you enjoy living in a reasonably safe society? Who or what do you think maintains that? The goodness of people? Community programs? (Yes, this question is rhetorical).
Your local, state, and federal law enforcement do. Without them it would be survival of the biggest and baddest (look at areas that don't have functioning law enforcement: places in Mexico, Africa, etc.) and nobody would want to live in a society like that. If you think "people will just get along", you're either extremely naive or stupid.
I believe the police should be criticized. In this case the officer was in the right.
One of the other posters brought up living in a civilized society. Society, particularly American society, is no longer civil. That's the breaks.
Americans now have the society they've always wanted: a society where criminals/drug addicts/miscreants, are no longer held responsible for their actions.
