Ah - if you are so sure - then how many and what type? If you are sure so you must have some supporting evidence right? I think most people underestimate the risk a knife holds inside the 21ft rule that DucatiMonster696 posted aboutPlenty of those officers had non-lethal means of disposal on hand, I'm sure.
So you're telling me is that there are all these videos all over the web of police tasering people and out of 20+ officers none of them was carrying a taser?Ah - if you are so sure - then how many and what type? If you are sure so you must have some supporting evidence right? I think most people underestimate the risk a knife holds inside the 21ft rule that DucatiMonster696 posted about
There was never a time that they wanted to shoot the guy. The guy forced them to by lunging at them with a knife. They tried repeatedly to get him to stop, without resorting to their guns.More and MORE cops show up and THEN you decide to shoot the guy? That's for a "when my life is in danger" scenario, your life isn't in danger when 20+ of your homies can back you up with metal sticks over twice the length of ONE assholes knife. Ridiculous.
How do you say that his death was directly the result of being tased in one sentence, then two sentences later, say that they can't cause death? 404 error on logic.As it happens, Iman Morales, 35, was naked and waving a fluorescent light bulb at officers as he stood on a ledge. After a half-hour standoff with the police a Lt. Michael Pigott ordered Officer Nicholas Marchesona to fire his taser. Naked and crazy Mr. Morales fell off head first and died.
Death by taser, right?
Combine a few more such instances and a few incidents where individual officers misused their issued tasers and all of a sudden the good citizens of NYC are up in arms demanding that these
less thanoccasionally lethal force devices be held back from the patrol force.
This is very relevant. A guy was outnumbered and FOUR suffered serious wounds. One stabbed in the stomach. Just a slight change of angle of a knife and that stomach stabbing could have gone upward slightly, piercing the heart or lungs.
You are misinterpreting what I wrote.How do you say that his death was directly the result of being tased in one sentence, then two sentences later, say that they can't cause death? 404 error on logic.
Only ESU cops and some patrol supervisors carry tasers in the nypd; regular cops do not. When confronting a perp with a knife with useof it imminent, deadly physical force is authorized. You don't combat deadly physical force (knife) with non lethal force (taser/baton) But what do i know...It's not like i went through a police academy in new york....I've been to times square numerous times during daytime, it is fucking CROWDED. I would be pissed of cops opened fire near me over something like that. Where the hell were the tasers?

B) It’s always better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
C) Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.
D) Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arms length.
E) Never say “I’ve got a gun.” If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they hear should be the safety clicking off.
F) The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes, the response time of a .357 is 1400 feet per second.
G) The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always win – cheat if necessary.
H) Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets…You may get killed with your own gun, but he’ll have to beat you to death with it, cause it’ll be empty.
I) If you’re in a gun fight:
If you’re not shooting, you should be loading.
If you’re not loading, you should be moving.
If you’re not shooting, moving or loading, you’re probably dead.
J) In a life and death situation, do something…It may be wrong, but do something!
K) If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?
L) You can say ‘stop’ or ‘alto’ or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed at someone’s head is pretty much a universal language.
M) You cannot save the planet, but you may be able to save yourself and your family.
I think you have a reading comprehension problem as I never said that at all. I simply asked you why you were sure in the complete and utter absence of any proof for your claim.So you're telling me is that there are all these videos all over the web of police tasering people and out of 20+ officers none of them was carrying a taser?
Officials said Monday that officers armed with Tasers were on their way during the standoff but didn't get there before the officers confronting Kennedy decided to fire.
A patrol sergeant and an Emergency Services Unit had the Tasers. NYPD protocols on the use of Tasers allow ESU cops and patrol sergeants to carry the stun guns, not individual patrol officers, officials said.
So unless you actually have some proof to back up your claim - the burden is indeed on you to prove it as all of the evidence says your claim is wrong at bestnot one of the 20 officers who chased him was carrying a Taser
About 3,500 uniformed sergeants and other supervisors on patrol duty will be issued Tasers, costing about $500 each. The NYPD has 36,000 officers.
lol UK. Stop or I'll use a more stern voice when addressing you, sir!
