Tasered For Resisting
This is a story about a man who was stopped by police for not wearing a seatbelt. When police asked for his paperwork he started to run away. After a short chase the guy fell and rather than obey police officers, he started kicking them. That’s when police tasered him. He can read the whole story HERE.
It is never good idea to disobey a police officer’s lawful commands. There had to be more to the story, but at this point we don’t know.
Police officers follow what is called a “continuum of force.” They use whatever is reasonably necessary to get a suspect to follow lawful orders or subdue an assailant.
In this case a taser was used. The Taser X 26C is the same model police officers use but their version has a longer range.
Tasers have been shown to have more stopping power than a 9 mm handgun and will work even through a bulletproof vest. They have nearly 100% stopping power.
