I watch A & E and the Discovery Channel. I've seen the clips of police officers using a taser on each other for demonstration purposes, but today I got to see it used for real.
Some erratic driver was caught live
on tape escaping from the local police in the next town over. The
traffic helicopter joined the chase. Those of us watching the morning
news could see the guy drive off the road into a grassy area followed
by three cop cars. He got out of his car and started to run but
turned around to face the cops.
The officers got out and surrounded the guy who was gesturing like a
crazy man. You could tell they were yelling at him to get down on the
ground, but the guy was using his hands and screaming at them while
refusing to do what they asked.
BLAMO!!!!! Well, maybe ZZZZZZZZZAAAAAPPPP! is more accurate.
He was down so fast Mrs. Linklater had to wait for the replay later to realize what happened.
COOL. Gotta get me one of those. Can you use it to get dates? Or split a watermelon when you don't have a knife?
