This video reminds me of something that football coach/commentator John Madden said a few years back. In the midst of a Chiefs game, Madden lamented that NFL players these days "have forgotten how to tackle." Yeah. And bailiffs/cops seem to have forgotten how to handle confrontations without reaching for the voltage.
The other hot video is this one, in which a Utah Highway Patrolman tasers a guy who doesn't want to sign a speeding ticket until the officer tells him how fast he was going. The actual tasering is at 2:30, following this exchange: "Turn around and put your hands behind your back. Turn around." The guy scowls at the cop and says, "What the heck's wrong with you?" TAZE. (See the KSL story.)
The most telling part of the video: Afterward, when a colleague asks what happened, the officer lies, claiming that he warned the man, "Turn around right now or I'll Taser you." I figure it this way: If a cop thinks he has to lie to another cop, he knows he done wrong.
