    I've seen that video a few times. Thatís the cool thing about a Taser, the more muscle mass they have, the better it works. The primary officer in the video was also very professional. Thatís the way itís done...

    All were very professional - this should be in a training manual.

    That's the link.

    Simple answers:
    • Failing to obey a legal, legitimate police request escalates a situation.
    • Stating in advance you're about to resist, both via vocal statements and physical demeanor puts the opposition on notice that you're capable of going ballistic at any moment.
    • Resisting arrest can go easy or hard. He chose the middle ground, 'cause had he started pounding on officers and winning, he'd have been shot and possibly killed to stop his aggressions.
    • He's not harmed. He should be thankful.
    • His first time, so he labels the sensation as "pain." My guess is that he'll have more opportunities in the future to experience being Tased. He'll likely find it's merely incapacitating and not really painful.
    • It's remarkable how easily attention-deficient-possum disorder is corrected by the attention-getting Taser.
    • Bubba kept claiming he could take care of himself, even after it was all over ... and yet, combining those statements with the belligerence was the LEO justification for the Tasing. He merely saw it as an attack on him. These should be words or warning as to how such folks think: that your resistance of their belligerence/attack is itself viewed as an attack on them and rightfully justifies their escalation. This is the critical message from this entire video. Words of warning to CCW's as to just how risky any defensive action can be, and how quickly it can be seen as worthy of a harsh/violent reply. Ever wondered how quickly something can explode? This is just a glimpse, via one man's thinking (Bubba's).

    Makes them cry like a 340 pound baby. This is a case of the bigger they are the harder they fall.

    It seems to be an compliance multiplier

    Unfortunately It probably wont work on him the next time around though...He knows what it feels like now and probably won't fear it. As much as everyone wishes it wasn't that way....it probably is - especially since he's so big. Most of the debilitating effects of the tasers/stun guns is the fear of the unknown. It's really not that painful.

    That's not what this guy said. He said it was the most painful thing he'd ever experienced.

    It is my understanding that the 'effect' of the TASER is the painful disruption of signals to ambulatory muscles, that's why they fall; the pain is why they scream.

    He didn't seem too happy when they told the cop to hit him again with it. I think a tolerance to things like mace is more likely than things like a tazer. Gotta loves "Cops" though.

    Sure, but he had no reference point to use as any basis for comparison. To the first-timer, it can seem painful largely because that's what the person knows should occur when zapped by an electric doohickey. Doing three or four rides on the "gun", many can quickly get used to it, with a very short (near-instantaneous) recovery period and no residual pain. I'm one that doesn't see it as pain. YMMV.
