50,000 Volts

I know this is not a sophisticated argument, but this headline: "Woman Beaten in Her Garage by 2 Intruders" makes it very difficult to feel sympathy for this: "Ought Cops Zap Folks? Rocky Creates a Panel" My feeling is if you're man enough to commit the crime, you should be man enough to accept the consequences. And if you're man enough to run from the police or (worse) assault them (police are underpaid), then you're man enough to have your a$$ handed to you with the help of 50,000 volts.

Fair enough. But what about the people mistakenly tasered?

That's a good point, but its difficult to claim that someone is innocent when they flee from and/or attempt to physically harm law officers.

When you consider the old way of doing it, 115 grains of lead delivered at some 800 - 1000 fps, tasers seems down right civilized.

Look folks, if we take away Tasers like we keep taking away other "inhumane" options, what do the police have left? They will either have to use their hands or a gun. If I were a cop I'd opt for the gun. Don't you think Tasers are better when lethal force is not necessary?

You guys seem to be missing the point. Non lethal forms of stopping power isn't what's being questioned. The question is whether or not tasers are reliably non lethal.
What happens when a guy gets 'upitty' over a traffic citation, and officer yokel thinks to himself-"Can't shoot him, but sure as hell can taser his ass a few times" and ends up killing him.
God are all republicans this stupid?

Why are all democrats as uptight as you?

You guys need to get laid...

Geez, one would think that with all of the pot-smoking and casual sex you leftists promote that you guys would be happiest people on the face of the planet.

Apparently not.

Well why don't you come over, get high, and suck my dick as your latent homosexuality finally rises to the surface.

Ah yes, cuss words and threats - the last bastion of the uneducated.

I see. When conservatives get their panties in a wad, it's cute intelligent banter. You want me to leave out the cuss words? Fine.
But I want you to explain to me and the rest of the world how "...you guys need to get laid...pot smoking...all the casual sex..." amount to an intelligent argument. Can you do it Harvard?

oh, and since i can't resist-

You know, the longer you drag this out, the funnier it gets.

Intelligent argument? I never claimed ANY of my points to be intelligent, that was YOUR idea. In fact, I assert that this entire thread has spun out of control, and has now evolved into ridiculous blather. I merely claimed you were uptight and undersexed, and judging by the overall tone of your posts, I don't think I'm too far off.

Go ahead, fire again, I'm really enjoying this!!

I see. You have nothing to contribute.
Do you still want to give me a blowjob? I never heard a no.

If you never thought they were intelligent, anon#4 (I think- I can't keep track of which anon is posting which) why did you post your comments. That feeds trolls, and leads to the blather you seem to be enjoying. The point about reliably non-lethal tasers was valid- had you ignored the line about republicans, I don't think this thread would have taken this turn, and you would have saved face. That's just my two cents.
(of course this assumes it's been the same two people making the last few anon posts)
