You think this officer went way overboard tazing this woman twice? It just seems a little excessive to me. Although he did warn her several times to get out of the car.

Edit: Upon watching all of the videos it looks like the officer took the right action. I didn't know the woman took a swing at him. What a dumb bitch.

After watching all 4 videos I'm going to have to say she got what she deserved. 51 in a 35, busted windshield, busted tail light, no seat belt and a suspended licence. She copped a serious attitude, refused to comply with the officer's instructions and apparently tried to hit one of the cops.

She got tazed.

If you watch all 4 videos he actually stays very calm and very collected.

A lot of departments have their officers tazed so they know what it's like. She was over reacting.

First we don't know what went on prior to this clip. Second, he did tell her several times to get out. Tasers aren't that bad if used properly, which he apparently did.
Did anyone notice how she was playing it up and telling the person on the phone how he had a gun when he didn't. She was obviously formulating a false charge of abuse against the officers. Then the way she carried on, sounded like really poor acting. The officers, maintained a professional composure, and used their non-leathals (from what I saw) in an appropriate manner.

Well I thought it was a gun too until he said it was a taser. Look at the way he was holding it and it is shaped like a gun. I wouldnt have known the difference either. But I know that they make guns with tasers instead of bullets. Just too hard to differenciate. And yah I think she was playing it up a bit too, but they shouldnt have taken it lightly when she started complaining about her heart.

The cops partner is black. Which I guess is keeping the cires at bay.

The gal says and I quote, as they are picking trying to pick her up... "You all are racist..." It's in there along with, "You throwed my brother in jail for no reason..."

Dumb bitch got what she deserved. Try to punch a cop you geht tazed. I was arguing with a Feminazi about it. She said "Women shouldn't be tazed." I wished I had a tazer when she said that. :happysad:
