That being said in this case if he wanted to avoid being tasered all he had to do was liten to the officer when he told him he could not drive in a certain area.
Not ignore him drive around him and continue to do what he wanted to. Sometimes people bring this stuff on themselves by not listening to what they are being told to do.
Now the cops better clean their desks out and leave the building or they'll be tasered and arrested for tresspassing on city property.

Hopefully, they both had a stack of cases pending that had to be dismissed due to the officers being a no-show in court.

The way law inforcement is outa control in this country I won't look at a police man cross eyed any more. This old fart has become frightened of law enforcement in America. Sad Ain't it??
As long as there is room for a cop to be under your car, why would you be afraid of them?

Are the pigs still trying to get their jobs back?? They should never be cops anywhere ever again. There needs to be more penalties when cops use excessive force. The cops are more like the mafia these days.
