Don’t tase me, sir!

From The Globe And Mail:

“Officials stood behind the Philadelphia city police officer who deployed the taser at the game, and said he followed protocol that allows officers to taser a fleeing suspect. But critics were quick to point out it wasn’t the first time an officer has tasered a fan at Citizens Bank Park. Local reports say fans have been tasered there many times before.”

Is it just me, or does this seem to anyone else like gross overkill? Click the image above for the full article and to see a video captured at the event.

  1. This doesn’t seem like overkill at all. When you do stupid shit, especially when it’s illegal and try to run away from the cops, expect to get tased. Like the air port guy, and the high as hell wizard guy, they new what they were doing and they deserve it. If I’m a cop I’m not going to waste my time chasing a guy in circles around the stadium.
