Wow... Seriously dude? What is so incredibly hard about getting people on the ground? And how long do you have to hold your finger on your taser trigger before you realize that it's not working and another compliance technique may be required? When I was a bouncer in my younger days, I kept a regular sized pillow case on my person to be slipped over someone's head and cinched down just in case you came across that one bad ass drunk who wouldn't take the hint that they were being asked or forced to leave. I guarantee you, if you slip that over a mans head and twist it up in your fist tight enough, he will go anywhere you pull or drag him to. I would have used a leash pole if they'd have let me... Sight loss and breath loss take the fight right out of people. That dude was on some serious heavy drugs.

I saw no actions that would justify a bullet. Sure there was probably a good reason for the police to be called, and we all know that refusal to comply in some cops, and others, mind calls for deadly force. but consider nothing I saw in the video earning a bullet to the head.
Well lets see--now we pay for his drug addication, his public attorney, and God knows what else. I agree a bullet in that situation was not warranted but Jeezzz.........
All sorts of fail in that video. First officer had NO CLUE on how a tazer works. You could hear him repeatedly triggering it with no effect.That's a MAJOR CLUE that the current isn't reaching the intended target. Then he finally decides to get physical....and makes a half assed swing or two with a collapsible baton. First of all those things don't have the mass to do a what's needed.....and second he didn't try very hard. Halfway through John Wayne comes along and tackles the guy....and screws that one up. You then have two cops....both significantly larger than the subject making half hearted punches at him. Eventually the guys goes outside where the incompetence continues. Finally a THIRD cop shows up and makes CORRECT use of his tazer and down the guy goes. What I saw was MASSIVE evidence of piss poor training, gross incompetence, lack of common sense and maybe even a touch of cowardice from the first two copswho showed they really didn't want to mix it up with the guy. I've worked in medicine 35+ years....much of it in ER. A couple of savvyER nurses could have taken that guy down in short order. Those first two cops are either incompetent and need another trip through the academy or just plain useless and need to be fired.
