Not really clear what led up to it, but it seems a bit biased in the reporting. It would seem that you comply with the instructions of the police, or you have problems.
One would think that those police have a lot more to do than have to worry about one guy that's upset.

Officers in hurricane-ravaged Fort Myers used a Taser gun on a man allegedly trying to get by a police barrier to get home, and it was caught on tape.

A crowd formed around the scene and voices can be heard yelling, "Leave him alone," "That is so wrong," and "Come on man, he's frustrated."

The man had three children in the car with him. Many in the crowd felt for the man who hasn't seen his home in days.

Many of the police officers are in the same situation.

It's not known exactly what led up to police using the Taser gun. You can take a look at the video to the right to see how things ended.

There are a number of police agencies offering assistance in the Fort Myers area. It's not clear from the tape which police department was involved.

The F'ing rule is real simple...When a P.O. says NO that means exactly that. It doesn't mean maybe or keep on trying, the cop will change his mind. Uck the idiot who wants to push the envelope, paper cuts can hurt. You can have Pope John Paul II in the car with you for all I care. But if you had Nicole Kidman in the car that would be different.

Yeah maybe that didn't come out right..
I'm all for tasing a guy...the police are busy, there's looting going on...they don't have the time to "negotiate" with this fellow. And it's not like the "count to three" rule of parents.
People need to look beyond themselves.

EDIT: Just saw the rest of the story. The guy is lucky that he's not dead...he tried running a roadblock with kids in the car.

Tasers are standard issued equipment here in most Florida agencies. We no longer have to risk injury wrestling some of these chowderheads to the ground. A quick "zap" will do them good!

Big diff between "...trying to get by..." and attempting to "run" a roadblock...shoulda tased big mouth, too...I'm sure he would have forgiven the officers as they were just "frustrated"! :twisted:
