    elsewhere, they tasered some guy 28 times, and he died. 28 times !!! Doesn't just once usually render most people almost into pants-wetting, drooling mode? I think after the first time, and certainly after the second time, I would be like "Whatever you say, man, just don't tase me again, bro."

    A lot of things you shouldn't do if you plan to get tased.

    My older brother is firefighter/EMS person. Many times they get called to stand offs with police when the cops think it is going to end with someone getting tased. Or as the cops call it, "Riding the Wire"

    The first one my brother got called out on was a guy running from the cops. He ran into his house and through a small opening into the attic of the house. The cops kept tell the guy to come down, they were not going to climb up and fall thought the ceiling trying to drag the guy down.

    My brother wonder why EMS was called as I said, and the cops told him to just wait. After a bit of trying to talk the guy down and telling him exactly what would happen, the cops fired the taser. The guy lost all control of his body and fall on the sheet rock of ceiling, crashed through it, and hit the floor hard.

    He ended up handcuffed to the EMS gurney, with a badly broken leg and soiled pants.

    Really? A container of gas and a cigarette lighter? what are the odds that is not going to end badly.
    To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection.

    If I may backtrack a little bit;

    From the original attached article,
    Aboriginal community spokesman Dennis Eggington said the guns were unsafe and should only be used as a last resort.

    "There are major health issues affecting many of our people across the country, from diabetes to heart health," said Eggington, chief of the Aboriginal Legal Service.
    Taser as last resort? So isn't this cat is pretty much saying, "Pop a few bullets into the fucker. If he's still a bit more mobile than you feel comfortable with, give him a bit of a shock."


    I don't plan on being tased, but if the occasion should arise, I would rather fall down and shit myself rather than being shot.

    its sort of hard to read this the same knowing the condition of indigenous rights here in australia. i can sort of separate it for a second and go "wow, thats a wild story!" but most of me just sees it as yet another shameful mistreatment of the REAL australians. our officials treat them like bratty children, and most of our general public treats them like outsiders in their own country.

    $10 says this becomes an sms joke around australia about "petrol sniffing abo's getting torched" instead of any real change coming from it. pisses me off that in this day and age segregation still runs rampant

    No - he's saying, guns shouldn't even enter the equation unless the other person has one.

    At the same time, there is a huge alcoholism problem within our indigenous community, and partly that's a problem of education...

    I used to work at a Alcohol and Other Drug agency and I have a deck of playing cards here somewhere issued by... a government department if I'm not wrong, printed up with anti-drinking slogans and anti-drug slogans... they released them, and then instantly recalled them when they realized that they were promoting gambling

    EDIT: Also I think the cards were deemed patronizing, but I'm not sure. If you notice each of these examples has a "proper english" version and a "dumbed down" version...



    And some of the cards:

    I don't know what was going on in that situation, but around here we have a fairly bad meth problem, and some guys, when high on meth, are quite capable of unbelievable feats in the face of something like a taser. Now, one would think that after the first 2-3, maybe 4 times, the cop would get the idea it wasn't working and would move on to some other tactic (a 30 man tackle or something). The point being, there are situations where a taser will not drop a guy.
