  1. Suspect refused to quiet down and leave area?Why wasn’t he arrested on the spot if he was “highly intoxicated and combative”?

    1. We need to equip officers with Tazers and then empower them to use them. Society needs to realize that people are accountable for their own actions, even if they are drunk. Can you imagine how this would be handled by the press if they cracked his skull? They would treat this guy like he was just a befuddled little boy.
