    As far as I see it, you’ve just said all there is to say about this topic.

    I wouldn’t disagree with that at all really, but I was commenting more about the attitude of the idiots badgering him. Mocking a guy who’s already clearly lost his cool and is waving a rifle around threatening to kill you is just about the stupidest thing a human being can do. But they act like they’re razzing some nerd at a Star Trek convention. If I were there and saw that cop my thought would be “holy crap, let’s get far, far away from that guy”, not “hey, let’s pester that guy and push his buttons.”

    I definitely can’t agree with the cop waving his rifle around like that, but these idiot liberal rats badgering him are playing with fire. It’s all just a big game to dimwits like these, like a college dorm party spilling out onto the streets. But if the powder keg blows and bullets start flying, these liberal idiots will be peeing their pants and crying for their mommies.

    Um…I’m pretty sure that since the founding of this country 18 years old was considered the age of adulthood, and typically one refers to adults as “adults” or as “men” or “women”. Pretty simple stuff. Or are you one of those dorks who likes to make himself feel smart by pointing out to people that tomatoes are technically fruit and other silly crap like that?

    “in what reality do you live in where (who cares what happened before this video) a cop can just taze you when you are completely just standing there. instead of him holstering that tazer when the threat no longer existed and putting the boy in cuffs.”

    In what reality do you live that a dangerous suspect can be safely considered non-dangerous simply by virtue of standing still? If a mass-murdering psychopath stops his killing spree and stands still for a couple seconds, can we assume he’s now tame and gentile as a rabbit? You may not care what happened before this video, but I think reasonable people should, because if indeed the suspect was behaving in a manner which could lead to the officer having a credible belief that the suspect posed a threat, then the tasing may be justified, regardless of whether the suspect happened to stop and stand still for a few seconds.

    Admittedly this hypothetical before the video aggression would have to be pretty extreme, but the officer could be justified in using the taser if he felt that the subject presented a credible threat, even if the subject happened to be standing still at the moment he’s hit with the taser. In other words, if the cop believed that approaching the subject to handcuff him might be dangerous, then I believe tasing would be justified. But again, the pre-video activity would have to be pretty convincing.

    The mob in Ferguson doesn’t care, they just want the cop strung up regardless of the evidence.

    We don’t get to see what happened prior to the start of the video, so I think it’s hard to say one way or the other. I mean, the video sure looks bad, but if the “teen” had been behaving aggressively and making threats just before the video begins, it might change my perception.

    It’s like the Robin Williams joke about unarmed English cops: stop…or I’ll yell stop again!

    One thing about Bill Maher is that he does speak his mind without regard to what anyone else thinks. Of course, 99.9% of the time what falls out of his mouth is moronic, but occasionally some morsel of intelligence makes it’s way out too. I wish that conservatives could feel as free to speak their minds as Maher does.

    “Hartford Police Stun Teen With Taser”

    Is this going to be a thing now, calling 18 year old men “teens”?

    Once again my state capitol manages to embarrass me. Madison a fun place to visit, but if I could push a button and jettison the entire city into space I would do so in a heartbeat.

  • August 19, 2014 at 7:03pm

    But what fun would that be? Better to find his cold dead corpse in the street once the smoke clears and say “Gee, wonder what happened here?”

    The police should be sure to “accidentally” nail that commie in the head with a tear gas canister, or “accidentally” run him over with their armored trucks, or ensure some other such “accident” occurs to rid the earth of this piece of crap.

    Perhaps America could send a return message in the form of an ICBM.

    UPDATE: later that day the U.K. man was spotted brushing his dog with what appeared to be a 14th century spiked mace.

    Must have been one of those devious squeaky bone grenades.

    Oh for crying out loud, who cares! This “story” illustrates a couple of the problems with today’s society. First, you have a guy who’s apparently too much of a coward to do the right thing and break it off with his fiance but instead feels it necessary to fake his own death. Then, he’s too lazy and stupid to even do that right. Next, the fiance feels it necessary to publicly broadcast her pity party across the internet. Finally, a news organization which, like many of today’s news organizations, considers trolling the internet for viral videos as “reporting”, somehow decides this is newsworthy.

    I will say this, I think the guy probably did dodge a bullet here. Listening to the way this gal carrys on about herself in a public video, I sure as hell wouldn’t want to be saddled with her for the rest of my life. I’d probably want to puncture my eardrums with a screwdriver before too long.

    Perhaps the would-be Florida rioters got stuck in traffic behind all the old folks?
