Homeless guy gets tasered; set on fire


Recommended Posts

I'm a Taser instructor at my place and Day 1 involves knowing/identifying your target and being aware of their possible exposure, i.e. a guy spotted huffing inhalants. The taser's ability to "spark" a fire to someone exposed to flammables and/or contained inside close quarters with flammables is part of training. Most places, including mine, had to switch their pepper sprays to avoid that exact predicament and during training, we also remind people that if you're working alongside another agency, they have not have nonflammable spray, so the totality of the circumstances must be taken into account.

Unreal. Everytime one of these idiots do something like this with a taser, the closer we are to losing them. They are a GREAT tool.
