Pretty tough call IMO... not sure if the use of the taser was warranted considering he didn't lash out at the officers. Are they allowed to use tasers if you just blatantly refuse to do what they want? As in non-violently?

cheap yes, those cops are doing a shocking job of restraining the man...

Loved this line in the article:
"The officer grabs the gown and tosses to the Naked Wizard, but he casts it away again"

Excellent pun

There was a point where the Wizard actually grabs the cops groin area, thats why he pulls out the taser. But i agree with Stevo, Sprint, etc they did do a poor job restraining him and dropping the knee was a cheap shot.

I am not sure,

Were those guys actually cops? Rather overweight plods if so, poor restraint technique, weird use of taser especially concentrating it around the neck area. Seems that cops feel more free to use a taser since its 'safe' even though they definetly are not.

since when can cops hold a tazar to some ones chest right at their heart and keep blasting them?
if three cops that big cant restain a dude such as the wizard, with out excess brutality and continous use of tazar, they should be police school.



....but if he is a real wizard why doesnt he make his willy bigger, a magic spell should add a few inches at least.

In theory: tasers are meant to be used as a less-lethal alternative to guns. So in a situation if it isn't appropriate to draw a gun, it isn't appropriate to draw a taser. They are not intended to be used as a torture device to enforce compliance.

In reality: "<bzzt> Do what I say, or I'll taser you again <bzzt>"

Meh, asked numerous times to comply. Continued acting like a tool. What a surprise.

Depending on what the hell the guy was using at the time, he could have had ridiculous strength. Could understand completely why police would be trigger happy with a tazer dealing with drug users.

YOU ever tried restraining someone who doesnt want to be restrained ??
is not easy especially if they put up a fight.

If they dont want to be restrained they can non comply and be a pain and make you do all the work which then makes it difficult to do.

Not saying right or wrong on the cops behalf but try and restrain someone sometime when they dont want to be and see how quick and easy it is to do.

was he naked trying to wipe his cock on you ?? :lol:

Maybe the cops were arresting him for a concealed weapon ??

Not everything can be done textbook style as much as we all EXPECT it to be.

Pendulum swings both ways might be perfect might not be perfect but same result.

Fairy muff the cops made a bit of a mess doing it but they made the decision to arrest the dude and went ahead with it.

wont get into semantics about situation or anything like that as no need at the moment.

Matbe another cop might have laughed it off and things went well maybe not .

AGAIN as I said wether the cops were right or wrong in thier decision is not mine to query I wasnt there .

the dude clearly needed to go have a bit of lie down somewhere. the knee drive and the constant tazer to his heart area and neck did seem over the top though, regardless. even more so.....everyone standing around, not doing a thing to get involved beyond videoing. So the world is watching.....big fucking deal. Where's that McLeod dude when you need him?

That was utterly appalling (on many levels). The police had many opportunities to restrain the guy with handcuffs (they had both arms pinned at one point) prior to tazering him. They could have walked him away. So to have tasered him at all was outrageous. To taser him some more when he was already on the ground and not doing anything to prevent the cops from taking restraint action was just sickening.

I hope these cops face serious discplinary action. Guns and tazers are not tools of compliance. They are for defence. Self-defence and defending others who are facing a potentially life-threatening situation. The only person needing to be defended in that video was the naked guy.

No, Tazers are offensive weapons as well as defensive. And for the last time the Tazer does not effect the heart FFS.
Many people have tried and lost every single time in court. Not a single person / Doctor has been able to prove that the tazer effects the heart.
All of these deaths / injuries relating to the tazer ended up showing that the individual had measurable amounts of illegal drugs in there system.

Let me get this straight, the heart no longer works on electrical impulses? Or am i missing something? A defib doesn't send a pulse of electricity across the body?? You cannot predict what electricity will do Mr Plod OSP, nobody can, which is why it is so dangerous.

Why did the naked guy have to be removed? Apart from aesthetic reasons.

I know that they can be used offensively, but that's not what they were introduced for here. Along with OC spray, they were intended to be used in a defensive capacity where the use of lethal force would not be appropriate. Unfortunately, they have been increasingly used to threaten people into compliance even when the person isn't a danger to themselves or others. The procedure seems to be that police jurisdictions will introduce them under the guise of improving safety for their officers (which I don't have a problem with at all), and then allow their application to change to one of 'obedience under threat'.

No you are correct, the heart works off of a electrical impulse.

The Tazer works off of the same electrical frequency so as not to stop or damage the heart. That is why it can be used on a person with a pacemaker or someone with a heart condition.

The problem here is I know what I'm talking about as I was a cop in the US having to deal with doped up asshats just like that guy.

Do you know why the guy was naked? If it was a rave then he more then likely took meth or similar. The reason why he stripped is the drug make the body heat up to the point that he may end up with a heat stroke because the body can not cool down.

How do I know this? Decause I was taught it several years ago when the meth labs started to come to light in the states.

The real question is...do you believe, given your training and experience, that the officers present could have restrained and removed the man without using the level of force that they did?


And your not the first to call me names and your not going to be the last.

Leave Desmo out of this :lol:

That is a very good question. My personal feeling is they went to easy on the guy.

Now before I get bash for that statement hear me out.

I am a firm believer in ending the situation as quickly as possible.
There is no reason to be fighting with the guy with the possibility od injuring him or yourself. No one want to be restrained so your going to have to wrestle with the guy to get him secured.

So you have to ask yourself, do you want to wrestle with a naked guy on the ground or put him down hard and secure him quickly or do what these guys did and make a scene?

Yes, puting him down hard looks bad but it ends the situation quickly before they get a chance to fight back and resist any further.

This is clearly NOT meth. And yes i am qualified to say so (15 years in AOD and a bit of time working the door at the Roebuck Bay Hotel). I would say more like MDMA, which while having ATS type qualities, gives a completely different mindset. Your right about the reason why he MIGHT have taken his kit off.....all the more reason NOT to restrain him as they did. The guy was not aggro, he was like a beligerant child....and so easily distracted. Chances are the guy would have walked with them if they kept him engaged, they could have covered him up as they walked, to a secure environment, where he could be assessed and arrested if needed. The issue is the cops didn't think there was any other way to get him to comply than to use force, and a knee drop from a 120kg cop!

at one point the hispanic looking cop waves off one of them as he got his tazer out, but in the end he seemed to not be supported by his fellow officers in NOT using force.

Good god man - stop there. Please don't be making medical assertions - leave these sort of folk to do so:

Taser Inquiry into the death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski (killed at the airport).


"One can conclude the risk of death from a Taser is small but not insignificant," said Dr. Michael Janusz, a heart surgeon at Vancouver General Hospital.

"Tasers must be regarded as being capable of causing cardiac arrest," he said. "The device appears to be safer for all concerned, including bystanders, than guns and clubs, but its consequences are not trivial."



He told inquiry commissioner Thomas Braidwood that hearts don't simply stop.

There has to be underlying heart disease or other contributing factors, such as lack of oxygen due to asphyxia or massive blood loss or severe metabolic abnormalities such as acidosis or abnormal potassium levels, Janusz said.

Tasers almost certainly can cause cardiac arrest, particularly in people with underlying heart disease, he said.

The inquiry also heard from cardiologist Dr. Charles Kerr, a specialist in electrophysiology and head of the arrhythmia management program at St. Paul's Hospital and University of B.C.

He told the inquiry that a heart beats as the result of an electrical impulse. He was most concerned about how Taser use might affect the electrical function of the heart ventricles, the main pumping chambers of the heart.

There is a potential for Tasers to cause harm and cardiac arrest, Kerr said.
"It is my opinion that there is a small possibility that an electrical discharge from a Taser dart could directly induce ventricular fibrillation," he said.

Ventricular fibrillation is an extremely rapid rhythm in the lower chambers of the heart, which simply quivers and cannot pump blood. Unless it is interrupted, cardiac death follows, he said.

Kerr said the pain inflicted by a Taser causes intense muscle contraction, an increase in heart rate and adrenalin-like chemicals and sympathetic nerve discharge.

"This coupled with subsequent physical restraint of the individual could also result in the inability to breathe adequately and possibly a drop in oxygen levels and changes in the acid balance in the blood, which would make the patient more prone to ventricular arrhythmias."

While the Taser appears to be a much safer weapon than guns for both victims and police, police do not seem to recognize that Taser use could lead to death, Kerr said.

In such situations, he said, people should be ready to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation and use automatic external defibrillators.
Outside the inquiry, Kerr was asked by a reporter if he had an opinion about multiple shocks from a Taser. He said it would probably cause more muscle contraction and more acidosis of the blood.


And before you go quoting where the surgeons say its a small possibility just remember that since 2001 50 deaths have been attributed to taser in the US, 1 in NSW in 2002 and recently in the NT a 39 year old man died after being hit with a taser (inquiry underway). And the Mcleod dad also died for 11mins.

I trust that you are not a serving officer in Australia?

Too easy?
Too easy means they shouldve jumped on him as well as laying the boot in a few times.

Too slowly perhaps?

I agree that they should have defused the situation more quickly, but I also believe that it could have been done with less force. Even though the guy was pinging (and he is a wizard :wizard: ) and has the strength of 100 men, they couldve taken him down, I believe there was enough of them to effect a quick takedown.

I just think it was weird. Fucking Wizard probably fucked them all up back at the station and turned them into toads. He probably concealed his wand somewhere just like he did with his penis.

Should have complied, but was off his tits and then again the cops could have dealt with it a lot better. As mentioned one of the cops motions to the cop with the taser to back off. That agressive tasering could have really back fired if the crowd got angry and lynched them.

Reminds me of this (hard to see but one of the police/security put some low blows in with fists and baton).
