Default Re: BART Police - New Lawsuit / Moving Taser

I'm just curious how many or you have been in a situation like this.....it's easy to second guess or Monday morning quarterback...BUT ....things like this do happen....don't get me wrong I'm not defending the officer blindly.....but without looking at training records and knowing a bit more of what happened beforehand...until a full investigation is completed I can't see the intent of this officer just pulling out his service weapon and firing it at the prisoner. In a stress situation officers will revert back to the training they were given be it correct or incorrect. It's a trained movement/reaction just as you would have in a martial arts ....you react the way you were taught to react without thinking about it...
