Here's another sweet tasing. The dash cams really make this one cut and dry.

The main lesson I see there is don't be black and call the police in the South. The secondary lesson I see is one I've believed for a long time: police departments aren't bothering to train their officers fully in the use of their available weapons, and way too many officers think that the taser is the first resort, instead of the last.

Too bad this particular story won't have a happy ending.

It's good that Smith was fired.

Well, that's good, he won't be pulling this crap again.
But not as good as you might think--he quickly got a job in the sheriff's department a few counties over.

MOTHERFUCKER!
