Should I get Tasered or Not?

Postby Gardenfit » Sat Aug 11, 2007 12:10 am

Im doing some crowd management training next week & have the option of getting tasered. Now I've been sprayed, hit with ASP batons and simmunition ...but I've heard this is something else. The question is, should I get tasered or not?

Well I voted "yes" for you to be :taser: ...

Not that you should ever accidentally get tased (as you might with OC)... But to see what it feels like, so when one of your tased customers says "I can't feel my face any more", then you know that they are full of poop... I'm sure Interceptor will be around shortly to put in his "yes" vote too... :o

I was able to take the training with the regular members at my detachment, and volunteered to 'ride for 5'. If anything, it will give you an appreciation for how effective a tool it is - I was screaming for it to stop as soon the pulses started :D

Hahaha, I'm curious as to how you got hit with batons. Sounds like you aussie coppers have a much wilder form of defensive tactics training than we do. Either that or you're not to popular with your platoon, but I'll guess the latter.
I personally did it for the money and the glory... my disappointment was tempered by the fact that I got a gun and a fast car-VanB

If nothing else, you can say, "Hey baby, I've been tasered."

And no, I don't have very good luck with women.

I think you should get kicked in the balls too. And have your nose hair pulled.

I took the ride for about 1 1/2 and that was long enough.

I say do it, I don't know anyone that's ever regretted it.

Think of an overzealous Sergeant playing with a new toy. The only positives to come out of it was that i missed 7 nights of night work and the offender came of a bit worse for wear as well....and yes they do hurt , especially just below the knee cap.

:stupid:
Taking a ride on the taser is good fun, in a hook this car battery up to your nipples kind of way. I went for about 1 sec, plenty long enough. Get someone to take pictures. Taser facial expressions are priceless!

Ah, I see CC9769. I've seen a few similiar examples of poor baton wielding skills. Sounds like that Sgt owed you a few beers.

CC go for it! I've been in the gym while some members were being "trained" on the Taser. I heard a few sounds come out of people that I've never heard before but they all came out of it ok. If you're fit and you have never been diagnosed with any heart issues do it. At least the effects are over quickly, not like OC spray.

If I was offered it in future training I'd do it. Then you can speak from experience if put on the stand.

He did apologise to me when he came and picked me up from the hospital...and I never let him forget it

From that same user on youtube, I found this...some people took 2 tasers for the 5 second ride. I love the guy about 55 seconds in.
