Re: Tasered for Open Carry
I think what is being seen here is the "he wont do what we tell him so we get to tazer him" phenomina. I wouldn't have reached for my gun either, I'm sure other officers probably had him covered with firearms also. Then we would be reading about some crazy guy reached for his gun and they shot him. I pretty sure when someone has their hands in the air and his back to me I could put him on the ground and cuff him faily easily without resorting to something that has been proven to only be only less lethal. Just another instance of living under undeclared marshall law.
