Both the Military and Police Forces are trained to defend us, the news media film the worst possible circumstances, put it on the T.V. news and only show the worst possible content then claim brutality, to sensationalize, and to make a good story. They should be reporting the good things these men and women do to help the public, then, that is not as sensational as someone being tasered because he threatened the lives of innocent by-standers and the police are there to help him and save his life. The media has pretty much destroyed the use of the taser, the next possible option is an instrument that goes “BANG”, instant death to the offender. Come on media and reporters, lighten up and stop trying to be heroes. I know of a situation in the north where an old widow needed help, and the local police went to her home daily to help her light her wood stove all winter, just to keep warm. These are the stories worthy of reporting, not about an out of control 250 pound drunk that needed to be tasered so that he wouldn’t injure himself, or kill someone else. The military has equally as many stories similar to this.
