Female police officer is charged with assault over Tasering force’s own race relations adviser in the face

How is that a crime? Seems like common sense to me. Best practices even.

    The tazer charge seems to have created a strange hair formation in this man

    Pretty poor policing, it looks to me like both officers should be charged with assault.

      Nonsense, the guy was totally belligerent. Here’s a tip, when police mistake you for a wanted, go with them and clear it up at the station, don’t resist arrest. Every effing school child should have that degree of sense. I’m with the cops on this one.

        You must have been watching a different video. The guy was not arrested until after he was tasered. Further, they were impeding his lawful progress down the street, and then the male trespassed onto his property uninvited and assaulted him before the female tasered him while he was defending himself. this was all before he was arrested. You are not obliged to answer questions while you are walking down the street and unless they had a warrant, they should have charged him or let him go.

          Next time you are stopped by a cop try that attitude out and see how it works.

            What attitude? knowing my rights? – Its been a while, but the last time I was questioned on the street I told the cop my name and address and that I had an appointment to get to and he could call me, have a nice day and kept on going. He didn’t try to stop me. Different rules apply if you are in a vehicle. I would not try this in the US – God knows what the rules are, and they are probably different in every county. Also, you do run the risk of being arrested. But on what charge? I would not resist, so if I had done nothing, what are they going to charge me with.

    Putting the dog in a picture was a stroke of genius. ‘Never mind that silly man laying on the ground, look at the cute little pooch.’

      Police dog or not, I hope it took a whiz on the guy after too.

      Addendum: Oh, Hazel is his dog. Well, if the dog was okay with him being tasered, it’s fine with me too.

    Who’s a good doggie?

    Not you, asshole.

  • DaninVan

    The dog is like, “Hey, leave me out of this!”

      Hazel is obviously the most intelligent animal on scene.

    Jan 14th incident ? The mills of the gods indeed.
    Since Mr Hairy has been sufficiently punished, it is PC Dumb—k’s turn.
    A taser to the face and then drummed out of the plods seems fair.
    Her partner should also be advised to seek employment elsewhere since his grasp of what his jobs requires in the way of obeying the law seems to be lacking.

    He was arrested and gave them trouble. If he were a regular guy and not their race relations officer,nothing would have happened out of the ordinary. Multi- crap privilege.
