    I've lived in 3 states and 2 *OTHER* continents in the last 10 years. My wife and daughter have come with every move except the one to Iraq.

    We picked up and moved from California because it was going down hill.

    We like it here in the western suburbs of Denver, despite the fact that it's the middle of May and several inches of global warming have fallen from the sky.

    I don't think the application of community policing and hot traffic talk was going to change that dude's mind. Standing in the road having a loud angry argument about the depth and breadth of that dude's f*cked-upedness wasn't going to be the game changer. Electricity however seems to have realigned his state of mind and he appeared to be much more open to dialogue.

    Good move.

    “The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”

    Can't stop watching!


    Don't care who you are, that's funny.

    Think I figured out why they wouldn't gave us tasers,
    too many council members would have been the recipient late at night.

BEFORE that incident the Taser was pretty low on the Use of Force Continuum (and Pepper Spray was about the same as harsh language--now pepper spray is a serious use of force that requires command review)
    I think the word inappropriate is an understatement, but... Police Policy is rife with backwards thinking and lack of sync with logic. Sounds like the policy makers are placating the mob by pushing the use of TASER out of the practical realm and into the stratosphere in hopes of winning some points for an occasional "TASER saves the day! Guy almost got shot!" headline.
