What do you folks think? in "Off Topic" Posts Posted November 20, 2006 I do think as said here ref pulling a man out of a door (jchung) - which I get your point, that I feel the tazer aproach used was WAY WAY over the top, I mean the man wouldnt exactly be able to stand and simply walk out as they asked after each shock from that thing, and with him then being a pile of twiching mass on the floor they still have to drag him out thats my view. Stubborn as the man was being the police hardly helped themselves either IMO & the incident should be investigated ref the police and the way it was handled. True, but there is one major problem you are overlooking. Tolerance. People have different levels of tolerance to different types of "punishment". When I was kickboxing, part of the class was lifting your arms in the air while someone would take shots at your ribs, and this would progress to heavier and heavier shots until eventually you can tolerate a pretty good shot without crumbling to the ground. We did this with our shins, abs, etc... In Aikido we did something similar with choking. One person would sit and have another choke them from behind until they begin to feel light headed. Then the person being choked would begin to slap the ground with their hand and the "choker" would stop. You fight to keep from passing out and in time you will develop a greater tolerance to passing out from being choked. Despite equal amounts of training, there are always some people that can handle more than others. I have been hit with mace (this was a long time ago when mace was still in common use), and pepperspray, and I have even seen someone hit with pepperspray and it literally had no effect. Another can was brought out and still nothing. Not all people react the same way when force is applied. This guy in the video may have yelled out when hit with a jolt, but in no way does it mean that he was not still resisting arrest. Again, I would challenge you and someone of equal size as one of those officers to carry me out a door without tazing me. I seriously doubt you would be able to take me out that door. @NYR Good post, thanks for the info. I had a feeling that there was much more to this than meets the eye.
