I'm glad he was not showing you his 45

Based on what his partner stated, I would not go to the superior. What if the superior is the same way, you can dig yourself into a bigger problem.
Don't let it go more than a day. I would suggest reporting it.
as for reporting ... what happens if there is a video somewhere (for prevention of stolen fuel) which shows the incident, and your boss wants to know why he learned about it from someone else who saw the vid? Not a question I'd like to answer. Tell your own boss, let him/her decide whether or not to escalate.
Don't them things have a cumputer chip in them that tells when & how long you BLAST EM??

Report them both. If the superior officer makes you confident that BOTH the ND and the threat that 'you better keep quiet' will result in written apologies to you, let it end there. But get it in writing, or it doesn't count.
If the superior officer gives you any guff at all, get up, walk out of his office, and proceed directly to a lawyer's office and proceed with legal action.
I just dont want to get pulled over/searched/roughed up everytime I start my truck!
It is pardonable to be defeated but never surprised.

From this moment keep a journal/camera/recorder etc. with you at all times to document any occurrences that take place, if any. You probably won't have any trouble though, besides that officer probably knows better than to mess with a man that is tazer proof...I would.
Tell us the city. His LT needs to know about this.
You would think that the LEO would have to account for the cartridge.........
I wouldn't think they just let you shoot them off anytime you want .....He'd have to replace it with a new one, so wouldn't he have to say what happened to the one he 'used'?

As other posters have said, install some sort of video surveillance in your car, and consider carrying a form of audio surveillance as well, in case you get harassed. The police are generally excellent, but it sounds like this group may be trouble.
Is this a scene from the movie Super Troopers or Reno 911or something? This moron didn't 'accidentally' taze you -- he unholstered, pointed it at you, and then pulled the trigger until you were shocked. Then his partner in crime proceeded to threaten you. Furthermore, the Shift Commander is attempting to aid his buddies in their Shenanigans. This whole police department obviously has a serious lack of integrity. What kind of department accepts this kind of performance and attempts to sweep it under the rug and cover it up?
The people of your town deserve better than what amounts to The Three Stooges Police Department. Police Officer is a job that demands a very high standard of performance and integrity. You have by sheer (bad) luck identified three officers who are not deserving of the the trust they have been given by the citizens.
Please follow through with whatever it takes to make sure they are not simply rewarded with a frowny face and a paid vacation. These jokers need a new career flipping burgers or hauling garbage.
