People on drugs are often not "stunned" which may call for repeated use of the taser. I suppose you would rather they just shot him and be done with it, right?

Was he in the patrol car? Thought he was in the family car still. That many Tase shots will adversely affect most people.

So, What I see when I read all of this is, a bunch of name calling on all sides. Grow up! Study every thing you can about who wants to be President, Then Vote. If/and when the main conventions are done, Vote for the person that is chosen. If you can not Vote for that Person, Go study your navel. I will never vote for any of the Democratic candidates, in this upcoming National Presidential Election.
I like your comment. Especially, the “Grow up!” part.
And you are right about studying everything you can about the candidates — not studying them is how we got Mr. “Fundamentally Change America/Hope/Change We Can Believe In” or whatever it was. Please, let’s not do that again with Mr. “Make America Great Again.” At least 0vomit acted on his principles, as depraved as they are. Trump cannot even act on his principles; he apparently has none.

You are obviously young, and have not felt the true impact of an act like was done to this young man. I feel sorry for your ignorance.

Blinknight you seem to be irrelevant to Most conversations that you comment on. Any body on this site would grant that there are Some College Students who work very hard to gain their education and support themselves. There is a large percentage of students that do not. When you spout your drivel, it just proves to a large percentage of the people reading that you have an agenda and are not very bright in your comments. Mostly those who agree with your statements are Known Trolls and by their own comments trying to drive the same agenda as you. Which in my view, makes you all irrelevant to the conversation.
November 10, 2015 at 2:51pm
come out here, I will show you a hanging from the rope side. You are as bad as the Black Lives Matter group.
At this point I deem you a TROLL, and an ugly one at that, at least in your heart.

On this post Zappa, I will agree and give you a thumbs up. I live in this area, I will wait to have the full story and it will not be just one side or the other.

Am aware of a situation that occurred back about 2006 or 2007(sorry getting old) Idaho State Police car broadsided another car that was coming out of a side road. Getting close to evening time, According to my son, who let the lady go ahead of him to the road, there were NO LIGHTS that were on on the police care, NONE. Lady Died as my son got to her car. Never heard another word about the accident, and to my knowledge the officer might have been transferred to another district. Whole story seems to have been hushed up. Just my recollection.
As for this incident, go back to the fact that there were cameras available but not used? Why? As for the statement that there are a lot more “young punk know it all’s” being hired in our area(Idaho)that is true. Record your encounters, do not antagonize be polite, when they do step out of line, you have proof. If there is polite discourse between you, then go about your business, The officers, if they are of good character are only doing their job.

What you might have missed in the first story of this is that the people in the car had to be extricated. The car they were driving weighs in about the same as a full grown Black Angus Bull, something over 2000lbs. They were in no condition to call anyone, accident was reported by another motorist. The location from “town” is about 5 miles or so. My son and I both drive this road at least twice and sometimes more each and every week. The speed is around 55mph at this location. Imagine hitting a 2000lb animal at that speed in a small car. It is open range, even if some fences are along the road. Open range means just that, animals can be on or beside the road, use caution when driving. Once Rancher is on scene, the animal is his to deal with, unless he refuses, or is unable to deal with it. Things to consider: How long have these officers been in the force, are they from a rural area, have they ever dealt with this situation before, How old were they. This rancher and his family have been there for generations. This is not the first time that he would have had to put down an animal. Some of the Questions raised about the rancher are also valid, What was his “condition” when he came down to the scene(grant that he was upset about the possibility of losing a “prize” breeder bull) but still aware of his duty to put the animal down if needed. By the way he lives less than a about 300-500 ft from the road. Now you have a bit more information. WAIT FOR THE WHOLE STORY TOLD!

Leper, speed of either of the two cars is unknown that are in front of him. IF the car in the right lane is going 1 or even 2 miles under the speed limit and the car in the left lane has started to pass him, the car in the left lane is within the LAW. He should NOT speed up to pass the car in the right lane. IF the Idiot who was tailgating was going over the speed limit, he is the LAW breaker and no others should be “forced” to also break the law, just so he can continue to speed down the road. I drive transports, I see this idiocy all the time in all states. If you are late, leave earlier. If you have an emergency and feel you need to hurry, that is what they make emergency flasher on your car for. Most will move over if they see them. If you are doing that just so you can get ahead, then you have broken the law. Pull that stuff on me and I will continue to drive the speed limit and probably delay your impenitence even more. Try to cut in front of me, and I will probably run you over and think I hit a small bump. It is hard to stop 80,000 pounds on a dime.

If it comes to convert or Die, I chose them to be the ones to Die. If there is such a thing as a peaceful Muslim, they probably aught to stay away from everybody, because they will suffer the same “fate” as the Violent Muslims.

If you know not what you speak about, perhaps you should remain silent and prove to people that you know nothing about this.
 November 3, 2015 at 11:58pm
Depends on where he is from, may have reciprocity with Utah in Concealed carry, but may have had to pass through an area that would frown on a “gun” in the vehicle. I would have to agree, the first shot would have dropped one, especially the one who attacked. The rest would have scattered and **** their britches. I travel to Salt Lake at least once a Week, Do not mess with me or my vehicle, you will be shot. Not big talk, just fact.
 November 3, 2015 at 6:45pm
Post up this report you speak of
November 3, 2015 at 6:41pm
Hope to know the truth soon. If the Rancher only fired one shot and it hit the bull, we will know that there are two incompetent officers employed in Council Idaho.
 November 3, 2015 at 4:51pm
Zapparules, What you have is only one side of the Story, That as told by the officers and Their Boss. Do you know the reason you only have that side? Because the Rancher is DEAD! Officers are armed with pistols and DO NOT KNOW where or how to put down such a large animal. The Rancher was armed with a Rifle, and knows where to shot to put the animal down, with one shot. Until you know the Whole Story, why don’t you SHUT THE HELL UP!
November 3, 2015 at 4:40pm
Why don’t you keep your misinformed opinions to yourself, instead of proving to people what a Fool you are? I know these Folks, you are not worthy of even digging a ditch for them.
If you do not like what I post to you, please “bring” it. I am not afraid of Ignorant people. I live where these People live, YOU do not. Figure out a way to reply to me direct, because I will probably not be back to this post once I am done reading.
 November 3, 2015 at 4:32pm
This is to the Misinformed Zapparules: Yes he is serious! Oh, by the way, this occurred in open range, if you do not know what that means, please look it up. The Accident was NOT caused by his Bull, it was caused by inattentive driving. Let the Rancher deal with his Bull, Once he is there, it is his responsibility to control or put down the animal. Engage the authorities in a shoot out?!?!? Bull spit, you are speculating based on minimal information. You are suggesting that a financial “investment” is more important than the lives of people. He did not suggest that, you did. You have no clue what that Bull is worth, but the vehicle they were driving, might be in the same neighborhood of the Bull. You obviously have never seen a vehicle after it has collided with a large animal. It is generally totaled. You do NOT have the information to make your statements. You have proven time after time that you really do not know about many things that you speak about. Why do you continue to “speak” , is it so you can remove all doubt that you are indeed a Fool?
