    I wonder if she ever called in ‘shots fired’.
    She announced that she was gonna taze him twice before shooting him. I bet he was surprised.

    Maybe cops shouldn't be so aggressive over small things. Look at the 2nd LT situation. Hell I would take a chance of running away from a cop that seemed aggressive than staying there to get beaten or shot.

    He should have complied with the verbal commands given by the LEO.

    You resist arrest by flight in a 2000lb weapon you should be shot on sight......Suck it bleeding hearts

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    He was asked, then told, to exit his vehicle what seemed like 20 times and never did. He should have known better. No idea why he would have thought things weren't going to go south for him in a hurry, but....

    Now, he's claiming his civil rights were violated and is trying to sue. I disagree- he is responsible for needlessly escalating a routine stop. He could have put the officers at ease from the start if he'd have cooperated in a reasonable manner, but he went down another path.

    I hope the officer gets his job back. They jumped the gun with his firing, in my opinion.

    But that way no one becomes a martyr or gets street credit or free meals 3 times a day. It's so foolish to think that acting out and resisting arrest is the way to go but it seems the past year of current events has attributed to the idea that it's the right thing to do.
    Also a PURE lack of respect leads to this crap.

    There isn't a speck of yellow on our current issue Tasers. We never had the fully yellow models, but the X2s had some yellow by the sights. The ones we have currently (X3 maybe?) have NO yellow, and even when turned on, the LED display on the rear only shows a very small battery indicator.

    The questions that came to my mind immediately were "How much of her 26 years has been on the street versus other, non-patrol assignments?" and "How much experience, other than carrying it, does she have actually using her Taser?"

    From the Wikipedia article related to the Oakland BART officer "Taser-shooting" a guy in the back:
    On January 30, 2010, Alameda County prosecutors charged Officer Mehserle with second-degree murder in their indictment for the shooting. Mehserle resigned from his position and pleaded not guilty. The trial began on June 10, 2010. On July 8, 2010, Mehserle was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and not guilty of the murder charge and voluntary manslaughter.

    Though initial protests on July 8, 2010, against the jury verdict were peacefully organized, after dark there were incidents of looting, arson, destruction of property, and small riots. Nearly 80 people were eventually arrested. On November 5, 2010, Mehserle was sentenced to two years, minus time served. He served his time in Los Angeles County Jail protective custody, held in a private cell for his safety. On June 13, 2011, Mehserle was released under parole after serving 11 months.[1]

    Oakland civil rights attorney John Burris filed a $25 million wrongful death claim against BART on behalf of Grant's family. BART settled with Grant's daughter and mother for a total of $2.8 million in 2011. It also settled with several of Grant's friends who had sued for damages because of police brutality. A separate suit by Grant's father did not result in a jury award, as it was decided that due to his imprisonment he was not sufficiently involved in Grant's life.
