Tomorrow is going to suck
Going to Taser training in the morning. I will take the ride. The only reasons I'm doing it are that I am curious, and that I have let them hit me with every single LL weapon we have (because I was curious). But I am scared to death of electricity. Like an unreasonable fear. The only thing I can think of that I'm more afraid of is sharks.
If they every try to get me to carry a shark, I'm going to fucking quit.

Given all you've posted about how much pain you've experienced on the job, I don't think the taser pain could be much worse!

Most importantly though, bring us a good story about your adventure.

You've let them hit you with LL impact weapons like bean bags, etc??!"If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970

I took the ride. It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I would much rather be tasered again the pepper sprayed again'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

I feel you on the electricity thing. Growing up around electric fences and getting knocked unconscious on a different occasion will do that.

Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

it should be noted, i was hit with all of those impact weapons and the cn/cs gas while on the CERT team in the DE state DOC. the only thing my current police dept has done to me is spray me with OC spray and CS gas me (both of which I also experienced on the CERT team several times). the OC was a voluntary direct hit while in the academy, where they were testing out new brands of spray to see which had the most desired effect. sabre red. it hit me in the face, then i opened my eyes counted to 10 while everyone cheered, and then the intstructor got pissed and sprayed me again, and that one put me out. only 10 out of 60 volunteered for the direct hit (all of whom i had to persuade to do it with me). the rest were in a room and the instructors sprayed the room, then they all had to stay in there for 30 seconds and then walk out. pussy's. the CS in the gas house was mandatory, and was experienced by everyone.in the warriors code there's no surrender, though his body says stop, his spirit cries...NEVER. deep in our souls, a quiet ember, knows its you against you, its the paradox that drives us all. its a battle of wills, in the heat of attack, its the passion that kills, and victory is yours alone.
the posts and opinions stated by me do not in any way reflect the values, beliefs, or views of my department. they are simply opinions and/or observations which have been developed through my personal experiences. hell, most of the stories probably arent even true...wink wink

I've taken OC 3 times so far, all accidental (wrestling with suspect on ground, other guy reaches around to spray him but misses...), wasn't as bad as I thought but it still wasn't something I'd repeat by choice. I've talked to some of the local TASER instructors, who all have to take a hit to get certified, they say it's not a pleasant experience but doesn't really leave lasting effects other than some soreness for a bit.

From my experience, I wouldn't classify a taser deployment as hurting.
It's uncomfortable, but it doesn't really "hurt". That's really your first reaction when asked to describe it. It's more like a discomfort from all of your muscles going tense at once.
That's just my take."Like" us on facebook! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Offic...93147194083228

With your luck I would wear a cup.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

On second thought, I should have used the tail. You wouldn't want to grab it from the bitey end.
