Don't Go ahead and tase me, bro!

What happens when you get pulled over for a traffic stop, don't comply with the officer, tell him to "do what you gotta do", swing at the officer when he tries to arrest you, and then turn around and try to walk away?

Well, this happens.


Liberals will probably get their panties all in a bunch over this, of course, but this guy had it coming. You cannot swing at a police officer and not get tasered -- not to mention walking to a vehicle filled with unidentified people. How does the officer know what his intentions are, especially after this former football player just swung at him?

I don't care if the police officer is wrong in the situation (and there hasn't been a video I've seen yet where I've thought he has been). When he tells you to comply, you comply. If he tells you not to walk away, don't walk away. When you are about to be arrested is not the time to fight the officer -- if he really is in the wrong, there's a time and place to do so, and most of these idiots we see getting tasered, if not all of them, don't seem to be able to understand that.

He's got only himself to blame.

The guy took a swing at the officer. That's a lot different from several of the other incidents we've seen lately. Point to another incident where "liberals got their panties all in a bunch" where the guy took a swing at the cop.

One can debate the appropriateness of taser use in a particular incident, but it's dishonest for you to conflate them just to score cheap political points.

How about the infamous "Don't tase me bro" brian? He didn't take a swing per se, but he was swinging elbows in the cops faces, resisting and fighting them for a good while before they tased him, after a multitude of warnings, and liberals sure as hell got their panties in a wad about that one.

Creating fictional liberals to mock and you question their intelligence? Rrrrright.

Perhaps if the perp pulled a gun out, there might be a robust 2nd amendment debate here.

Not the same thing. I'm not aware of a "pro-hit-cop-with-no-consequences" movement that advocates inconsistent positions.

That's fair. We've long ago given up waiting for you to base your posts on facts rather than personal digs. Although I admit some are minimally entertaining.

It is the same thing in that it's an attempt to score cheap political points. The pro-choice movement is not without hypocrisy itself. An under-age girl can choose to have an abortion, but she can't legally chose to get pregnant in the first place. When have you seen NOW protesting about that?

Your cheap shot is to apply pro-life values to capital punishment, but there's a great distinction between innocent life, which all unborn are, and individuals who end up on death row. I know of no rational person who doesn't think that's true.

No one can guarantee with 100% accuracy that capital crime convictions are correct, just as no one can guarantee with 100% accuracy that abortions are safe for the mother. Innocent people could die in both cases, so if less than perfect procedures justify the stopping of the one they also justify the stopping of the other. That's fine with me, how about you?

Dave W:

I think all liberals should be tazed.

Well, not really, but they do get their panties in a bunch when ANYONE gets tazed.

I think that even if you're just standing there and you refuse to do what a police officer tells you, then bamo. You get tased. Manditory, no questions asked. If the cop was in the wrong, THEN he should lose his job. If you're an idiot, and you get tased for not listening to a cop, it's your own damn fault. What do you think a cop is gonna do? yell at you like your mom did/does? I don't think so.

Some people are just so coddled growing up that when they enter the real world, and confront actual authority figures, they think they are still only dealing with empty threats. It also takes a bit of an ego to think you can walk all over a cop and not get a chunk taken outta your ass.

False. Show us where it's illegal for a 13 year old girl to get pregnant.

That's not pro-"life". That's "pro-some-life-but-anti-other-life".

It is illegal. It's called statutory rape. Even if it's not prosecuted, it's still a crime. Obviously, women don't have control of their body in this case. Better pick up your sign and march around spouting the pro-choice slogans. Or are you a hypocrite?

That's not pro-"life". That's "pro-some-life-but-anti-other-life".

It is the pro-life position. You don't get to make up your own version just to support your view. The pro-life position even includes the taking of innocent life if it's needed to save the mother's life. Thus, it's not all inclusive like you claim.

Fish:

The condescending arrogant remarks, and refusal to comply with a lawful order manifests in teachings from the black church. The hatred for whites and lawless behavior makes one a hero within the black community. To do otherwise is acting white, and no respectable bro wants to be labeled white. It's all about the black experience, and America is only beginning to awaken to the threat. It's in the churches, music, and street Ebonics, and the message is hate whitey and all he stands for.
