    Question Cop Tazes Cop during struggle

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,243896,00.html

    I wasn't quite sure where this one goes, its not really humor, but it doesn't really fit anywhere else either.


    WARREN, Ohio A police officer was accidentally shocked by another officer's stun gun while they were trying to subdue a teenager suspected of being drunk, according to a police report.

    Patrolman Sean Stephens was struck in the head and shocked with a barb from a Taser fired by Sgt. Martin Gargas. The other barb hit the 14-year-old boy, police said.

    Stephens was treated at a hospital and released.

    The boy was fighting with officers who were trying to arrest him after curfew early Saturday, police said. He was taken into custody along with a 14-year-old girl who was at the scene.

    The teens were released to family members after being charged with unruly curfew and underage consumption of alcohol. The boy also was charged with resisting arrest.

    Warren is about 50 miles southeast of Cleveland.
    Maybe somebody with more experience with Tazers can clear this up for me though. My understanding is that the two probes both have to hit the target to form a complete circuit, in order for it to work. So if one probe went into each person, theyt would have to be in physical contact, and once contact was broken, the shock would stop. Right?

    And what the heck is a 14 year old doing out late drinking and fighting with cops?

    If the officer was in contact with the suspect, he completed the circuit. In training several officers will join hands and the electrodes will be held by the officers on each end. All of the officers then "Take the Ride" together.

    That is correct.

    This happens fairly often, but most cops are smart enough to keep it of the news.

    Surprised that hit the news. It happens. Same with pepperspray. Once in a while you get some friendly fire.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.
