In the old days if someone didn't respond to a police officers commands he would be tackled and punched and batoned until he complied. Injuries on both sides would happen. Why not just taser someone so that all of the above can be avoided.
I used to work in a profession where I observed PPB taser citizens. In my personal experience the use of the taser has prevented injuries on both sides. If you don't like how tasers how are deployed and if the DA wont bring up charges against the cop for being within the guidelines of the Use Of Force Policy, lobby down at City Hall to get something done about it.
I'd rather be tasered than having the baton brought out on me. Just do the what the cop tells you to do. If he messed up and did something illegal, sue him later.
Just hangup and ride all you bike riders that talk on your cell phone while riding a bike one handed. The criticism goes both ways for drivers and bikers. If you are going to talk on your phone please use a hands free device so that you can operate your vehicle/bike safely. Oh wait having a bluetooth ear piece in for the sake of safety isn't fashionably cool. And stop running red lights car/bikes!
