I can hear the bleeding hears saying "Negotiate" - foolish, how do you negotiate with drunk or crazy individuals, you can't. There is no controversy here, just platitudes from the bleeding heart crowd.

Rodney king is a bad analogy.
That drug induced monster was speeding at a hundred miles an hour in a res area, evading police. Had a long list of priors including police assault and on the video after repeated hits refused to go down. a tazer would have been great on him. Oh ya after his legal million dollar settlement he stiffed his lawyer, blew all the money and went to jail on another assault charge.

ALL you saw was a few seconds of a video that was not all that well shot.
Do not rush to judgement, as some of you have already, whether you are on the side of the victim or the police.
In Manitoba, to use a Taser as a Peace Officer, I believe you have to take it yourself first.
