I’m going to a baseball game tonight and after watching this video, my hopes for an exciting evening at the ballpark have skyrocketed: some old guy got tasered at the A’s game last night after he “was being belligerent,” as you can hear in the tape. I’m not a big fan of the whole tasing practice, but the alternative methods for removing this gentleman from his seat seemed even more ominous.
That said, there’s no reason that this guy should have been allowed to fall and hit his head on the concourse. If the state is going to assume custody of someone’s body, any injury happening to that person is on the police. Sure, that dude looks crusty and probably smells like an old Filet o’ Fish, but those cops aren’t lumberjacks. And that prick is not a tree.
The magic happens around the 1:10 mark, but I suggest watching the whole thing; the tension builds up rather well. And then watch the big guy in blue get pushed down the stairs and then get questioned by police for having the audacity to grab an usher to help break his fall. Well done, sir.
