If I'm a LEO responding to MWAG call, you better believe Taser is the last thing I'm thinking when the SHTF.
That woud be like bringing a knife to a gunfight.

A second case took two Tazers as the first set were ripped off by the suspect with his clothes. Bare skin is harder to get rid of them from.
Face it, those who have opined con-LEO are never changing their mind and those who opined pro-LEO probably will do the same, although I would have reversed my opinion if the more-criminal inquest had put some fault with the LEOs. I assume the civil case has yet to start but it will have no really full bearing on the truth (it is the nature of civil suits and conclusions by juries) and you know that the videos being asked for by the family, with reward, are as prevalent as the OJ videos, which that wonderful guy was willing to pay for. I, for one, am totally pro-LEOs on this one but am open to reason, which does not seem to exist in some of the more ridiculous and vicious anti-LEO statements made.
I am in a similar frame of mind on this as kelcarry. When I first heard about this I wondered how the police could screw up that bad. Then as I read some of the unbiased stories of what happened rather than those that just presented small snippets I started realizing that it wasn't so cut and dried. After reading two different detailed reports and viewpoints ofthe inquest I came to the determination that it was a good shoot and the father is much more worried about money than truth.
Just for comparision this is a story today about an 18 year of that has been found guilty and sentenced to two consecutive life terms plus 80 years yet his mother is repeatedly proclaiming her son innocent.

Yet another a$$hat. They should just issue these clowns full auto weapons. This would eliminate them from straining their fingers pulling the trigger so many times. He should receive taxpayer compensation for a strained index finger in this case. Four times to drop a homeless man armed with a three inch knife used for wood carving is total, off the chart unnecessary physical demands as far as trigger pulling in the line of duty. Full auto sears is the least we as a people could do to relieve these overworked public servants in this case! I mean for Christ's sake. If a man walks by a patrol car "armed" with a pocket knife, how can we expect a well intentioned public servant to do his duty, and gun him down if he has to pull the trigger for each and every single shot? Ridiculous. He could have at least pulled forward, rolled down his window, and ended his life from the comfort of his patrol car. But of course for that it would call for surpressed weapons, still yet more much needed taxpayer dollars. Bill T.
Yeah, you hate the police, Bill - we get it.
Start a new thread next time. This one is over and you are starting to look ridiculous using it to express your indignation and kooky LEO obsession.
Anyone on these drugs should NOT be carrying a firearm, driving a vehicle, etc. The young man served his country with honor and distinction. However, he made a very poor decision to go armed while on this medication. I pray for his family, his soul, and for the officers who had to shoot and kill him.
