surprised them from 2 feet away? wtf, you wanted him to stand there and make an announcement that he was going to come along with a 1-2-3- ready...go?
they knocked on his door, he had to come through two doorways, they tasered him through the first one, he came around the corner through the second door and still stabbed one of the officers and they had to wrestle him to the ground.
the taser was ineffective at stopping him, period. it took the physical force of the the officers to subdue him.
so, the use of a taser on a charging suspect within 21 feet was ineffective.
the tueller rule is within 21 feet, a suspect COULD cover ground within that distance and that the taser is not always effective, it has never been "the subject must go back to 21 ft, mark off the distance for the cameras and let the cops know his/her intentions" it is about minimum safe distance in the case of a surprise.
that video has an armed subject. he is within 21 feet. he stabs an officer who is backing away even though he has been tasered.
the austin cop, training video or not showed that the subject was not incapacitated by a taser and reached the subject, who was also in a training demo and not in a heightened or panic situation that causes most people, even officers, to freeze.
so i hate to break it to you vicky but i did show a video, where someone COULD as was my assertion and DID charge at a cop from within 21 feet and did stab the police officer.
you are hardly exciting but you are most definitely tiresome.
