    Fan Gets Tasered Beat and Arrested at PNC Park

    I find this kind of thing hilarious. From a few people I've talked to at the game, he deserved this.

    Ive gotta disagree. He was not physically threatening the officer, yet he was struck and tasered.

    Tasers are 'less than lethal' weapons. They are only meant to be used in extreme situations.

    Re: Fan Gets Tasered Beat and Arrested at PNC Park

    I'm with alarsen. From that video he wasn't combative at all. I also found it funny that those officers would smack him and he wouldn't even flinch. I don't know what he did before that but from that footage, those officers were out of line.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Yeah, the video portrayed some excessive measures. I wish there were videos of the criminal action taking place so I can try to put into perspective on why he had to be taken down in such a manner.

    Re: Fan Gets Tasered Beat and Arrested at PNC Park

    He's one tough SOB! He just stands there while getting tased and then just stares at the cop with a blank face as the cop hits him with his stick as hard as possible in the head and knee.
    Going from what you can see on the video, the cops were a bit excessive.

    I agree. 2 minutes of video isn't going to tell the whole story, but shoving a guy in the shoulder does not deserve a night stick to the face. Especially when the guy made no step/advance towards the cops before they went ape **** with their sticks.

    Re: Fan Gets Tasered Beat and Arrested at PNC Park

    Oh and I love the look on the people's faces in the background after seeing the guy get tasered and hit in the head, and its not doing a damn thing. Their jaws drop to the floor.
    And also, the park supervisors going on a massive power trip trying to keep people back.

    I am never surprised when I see police abusing their power.

    low-life trash like this guy re the same ilk as the a-holes that disrupt a flight while in-air, making the people around them nervous and endangering others.

    I hope the dumba#s learned his lesson

    If anything, the cops don't go far enough. Push a guy? Break his fingers/hand/arm. Talk back to a police officer? That's a broken jaw. See how tough you talk when your sipping your food through a straw.

    I think he is implying that he is the guy in the video.
