Cops using non-lethal force

Pilfered from Hotair:

Maybe the consequence of having "non-lethal" methods of subduing citizens is that cops are more likely to resort to using that more quickly than having lethal force only and making life or death decisions (and being held accountable for those decisions). It's easier to tase somebody because it's not gonna kill them. Protocol shmotocol, you're not listening to me "zap".

I watched that video and I have to say I think the citizen was being reasonable. He wasn't being threatening and the officer was telling a different tale at the end. That would be pretty upsetting.

Anyway, I hope you have a safe and blessed Thanksgiving.

Thanks CB-

I'm inclined to agree with you on the citizen being reasonable. Certainly cops have a tough job but here's case where poor judgement was used on both parties.
