    Deputy beat, Tasered, bit; gun stolen.

    http://www.insidebayarea.com/oakland...769?source=rss

    Sheriff Phil Wowak said the injured deputy, who was released late Monday afternoon, was "one tough cookie" calling the fight she put up "phenomenal," the relief in his voice apparent.
    She suffered some "pretty nasty wounds," he said In addition to being shocked with a Taser, she was hit a number of times in the head and bitten.
    "She fought very well and chased him at one point and then a second fight ensued," Wowak said. "It's lucky the officer wasn't hurt worse than she is. She was very brave.

    Let's see..., he was 24 years old, 6' 7", 270 pounds. And she was? Who thought that this was a good idea?
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    Two points, first the obvious one about the need for two guards in this situation. Second, her mistake was drawing the taser when her gun might have gotten the job done. She wouldn't have been worse off if he got the gun than the taser, since he got the gun anyway, and she'd have been a lot better off if somehow she managed to shoot him. Since she was dealing with an escaping felon, one who had just bitten her, I think the immediate use of lethal force would have been morally justified. She surely had to be in reasonable fear of her life once he attacked her.

    I agree with all of the above. Should have been at least two deps, preferably three. I don't like tasers. Had she not been tasered, she could have shot him befor or after he got her duty weapon.

    There is no way to justify one deputy for that detail. What were the SO supervisors thinking? She is very fortunate to be alive.

    We had a similar event a few years ago in Atlanta. Brian Nichols, on trial for rape, overpowered a female officer guarding him. He smashed her face in, took her gun and radio. He entered a courtroom where he executed the judge and court reported, and killed a deputy. He escaped and later killed a federal agent in his home, and holed up in a woman's apartment while he held her hostage.

    Agreed with Hopyard ((!) and everyone else.
    Yet another example of how so called 'common sense' is not common.

    Hopyard is dead on...Shoot that guy, with a gun!

    His background record alone supports as much toward him punching her and biting her.
    Dude is a violent offender who has specific issues with cops/authority. She'd get a clean slate on the shooting if I were on an inquiry board.

    The lone deputy had taken Ainsworth, 24, who has a history of guns and violence against police, to Dominican Hospital for an MRI.

    May this dirtbag's next trip, after being found, be provided for by the coroner.

    What happened to equal pay for equal work? If a 6-2, 250# deputy making the same salary would have made the difference, why is she there?

    Because of bureaucratic, PC, BS. Essentially, "any deputy can do any job".

    Reconsidering my first comment, we don't know how many other people were in that room at the time, so maybe attempting a shot was a non-starter. Also, anyone know what repairing an MRI with lead in its middle costs? It is irrelevant of course and I'm sure wasn't part of her split second thinking, but I bet she'd catch more heck for shooting the machine than letting the BG go; at least in the press.

    From the standpoint that you mentioned, screw the press.
