This video of a violent customer at Subway has gone viral. As it pushes over the quarter-million mark, I draw your attention to 2:30 in, when the cops arrive to take down the shirtless perp. The cops charge in with full force, both in number and style. One policeman pushes the bad guy backwards. The cops give the stunned, weaponless perp four seconds (being generous) to hit the floor before they Tase him. Clearly, the bad guy didn’t process the command during those four seconds. Nor did he make any aggressive moves towards the cops or anyone else in that time span. A Taser is a wonderful thing. But I wonder if the police are jumping the electron gun, setting basic combat skills aside in a subconscious desire to avoid physical contact with nasty people.
