    I understand every cop isn't like this, and they have a difficult job to do...but seriously? You going to taze an girl during a pillow fight?

    I would have preferred that they had shot her, but I'm a little more aggressive than most. Anyways... a taser is a 'less than lethal' force that can be used in many jurisdictions as a means of controlling an individual. My question is this... did the taser have the effect on the woman that the cops desired? If so, then it was better than them clubbing the crap outta her. So what's the big deal?:tup:

    you don't have to be faster than the bear; just faster than the slowest person running from the bear.

    I don't really care that she got tazed big deal it wasn't fatal and she was the only dummy out of what maybe 40 people that got it; people are too soft now a days.

    I got caught in the forehead with a club at ozzfest once by the coppers made me bleed my own blood! No biggie **** happens.

    Were the streets closed off to traffic for the day?
    If they were blocking traffic, they were causing a disturbance.

    I can see the argument...and I agree with you 100%:yes:. The lethal force is allowed for a disturbance of this size. I'm merely arguing the necessity of the force that was used on the girl.

    Yes. There is reason to question that motive but if she was just tazed, she'll be fine. If this was an event where the roads are closed to traffic and police are hired just to make sure a fight doesn't break out... all of their actions were uncalled for (or at least from what little I saw).

    Otherwise... they're in a tough position (though it should not excuse unnecessary actions). It they're soft, the crowd will walk all over them. So they have to be hard but also be careful. A crowd that size could become a riot at the drop of a hat.
