I want to see the part where the suspect gets TAZED...didn't even hear them go blaring by my street, sleeping so gooooodddd. Glad Officer was only minor abrasions

Why let him walk away and get back into the car? Then stand in front of it? This isn't a game, when he turned his back to you, take him down hard and fast and get on top and get control! Don't let them get in the car (weapons) and don't get in front of the car (big weapon)

Sloppy police technique, cops have been killed for this behavior.

I agree with "David". When he turned to walk away is when you start grabing for the taser or ASP baton. DO NOT let him get back in that vehicle!

I've done this job for more than 40 years, and my observations are (a) he should never have been allowed to REACH the car, (b) where was his back-up, and (c) the officer needed to use force MUCH earlier. The wrong person controlled this situation.

Never never ever stand in front of a car exspecially with a Adam Henry behind the wheel and use the tools issued to you.

This could have ended in tragedy. Complacency will get you killed! Come on guys, think tactics and be safe.

One damn lucky LEO. Many mistakes made, many "oops" that could have cost this Oficer his life as well as others. Should be used to show what NOT to do on the street. Blues, Stay Safe.
