    Got a taser pulled on me last night.....

    So I was walking to the local blockbuster last night with my friend at about 10
    from far away we saw a guy coming towards us on the sidewalk
    he didnt look threatening at all as he was well dressed walking a dog and about 40 or 50 so I didnt think much of him
    but when we got within 10 or so feet of him his hand swept back his jacket and it looked like he was pulling a gun for second. I stopped in my tracks and looked at his hand to see it wasnt a gun but a taser or some other sort of stun gun type weapon. My eyes were drawn to a red light on it that was pretty bright. I gave the man some space and continued walking and so did he, but he kept the stun gun out until we had walked by. I looked over my shoulder to see him put it back in a holster. My friend is pretty big, about 6'3 240lbs and im 5'9 165, but we weren't acting threatening at all, wernt yelling, and didn't stand in front of his path or anything. Kind of weird....

    Sounds like he's playing with fire. Red light? You sure nobody had a dot on them?

    Sounds hokey. He could get shot behaving that way.

    Didnt check down, but i also forgot to mention, his weapon was yellow
    so unless he decided to go with a bright yellow DuraCoat pistol, Im pretty sure it was a stun gun.

    This is a guy who just got himself a tazer or similar stun weapon and now feels like a big man. My friends and I have called this the "small man over-compensation syndrome" before. Same thing when you see a guy of smallish stature (5 foot 5 or so) driving the biggest stupidest looking pick up you have ever seen. They are overcompensating for their size....and it isn't always their height they are over compensating for either.

    This fool will run into someone who is armed and get himself shot or just beaten to a bloody pulp. Maybe they is what he deserves acting like that.

    Did you bother to call in the actions of this 'nut'?
    I don't think that the police would take his actions lightly. If it looked like a gun...he could have some explaining to do...

    Hope this guy doesn't decide to start CC a gun.

    If this happened last night, it's not too late to make a report. Get this guy educated in the proper techniques of self-defense.

    I would really not like seeing someone drawing whatever on me!
    That would have gotten ugly fastt!
    I would call the PD and make a report if you want to save the dude.

    Agreed. That's a scary thing to think about. I don't care who it is.. if they point something at me like that and they aren't in uniform? Yes, call the police and save this man from himself. He will get himself killed doing stupid things like that.

    Sounds to me that he was scared of you. Maybe he got jumped recently.

    I don't think he meant to scare you, just to show you that he was able to defend himself if you decided to attack him.

    I'm certainly not protecting him. If he is scared or something, just keep his hands on it in the pocket, no need to show it. If he meet the wrong crowd he could have been in REAL trouble.

    But I don't think he was trying to be tough. I just think he was scared.

    I had the same thought and see lots of posts from people carrying guns reflecting the same type of mentality especially if the people they are meeting are dressed a certain way. I will say that the fellow was overreacting but how many on here at least put their hand on or near their gun when meeting certain types of people on the street then when they get home immediately post about how they narrowly escaped being attacked by showing that they had a pistol.

    Since the OP is in Washington (the State, not the District) it probably happened there.
