Indeed, this coupled with the inevitable race riots over the George Zimmerman trial and the trash who shot the baby in the face promise to make this an “exciting” summer, in all the wrong ways.

Keep your powder dry ;-)

Actually, this may only be a particularly hardcore 0bamavoter.  Their imperviousness to rational thought causes them to be in denial of most all natural forces and laws, and their overall cognitive impairment suggests a highly compromised central nervous system.  Enough of a compromise to resist multiple taser shocks?  Only multiple multimillion-dollar Government studies conducted over decades will allow us to be sure......

I've always preferred airborne water cannons to deal with trash like this, but sadly the Marysville PD doesn't have one yet.

I had a friend who was an electronics technician, who provided the service of “boosting” stun guns and Tasers far beyond their factory specs. He said the hardest part was cramming a much larger capacitor in there.

They discharged so quickly you would only have one shot, so it had better count. But it would take down just about any man alive.

If drugs are going to make you impervious to tasers, maybe drugs should be outlawed.

Apparently manufacturers have worked out the “cannibal attack” side effect of bath salts. Not so many “drug fueled biting attacks” in the media this year.

If this guy had been armed, how many rounds would it have taken to end his violence.

I admire his strength and would specifics as to his workout routine and diet.

Hopefully not too many, considering the current ammo shortage  ;-)

That essential information hasn't been published to the best of my knowledge, but my initial wild guess would be that his day typically starts with "meth for breakfast".

Here in the hard-Left, ultra-politically-correct Pacific Northwest, not so much.  There's a HUGE push for "non-lethal" options for Officers (even though quite a few people have been accidentally  killed by tasers)  and traditional sidearms are still carried but their use is strongly discouraged and must be documented and justified to such a degree that many people feel it places Officers' safety in jeopardy.

And he's shaking his head, knowing that he could have dropped the perp with little more than an unfriendly glance   ;-)

An interesting question.  I haven't heard fire chiefs or 9/11 investigators address this specific scenario.  I also haven't heard of fire chiefs in large cities clamoring for a fleet of airborne water cannons to fight high-rise fires either before or since 9/11.  This could, of course, possibly be due entirely to the monumental, breathtaking cost of helicopter water cannons coupled with the comparatively few high-rise fires that they'd be called to fight.

I'd think that a computer-modeled scenario, implementing an airborne water cannon firefighting attack, might be possible to create which might shed some light on the matter, although the complexity of programming such a scenario sounds utterly monumental.  I'm thinking that the difficulty of accurately programming all of the variables would make any model's results suspect and inconclusive at best, but I'm not an expert on supercomputer-driven scenario-modeling.

My initial guess would be that they wouldn't have helped much, due to the tremendous volume of fuel present and how far inside the building, away from the walls, that much of the fuel would have been.  Even the powerful water cannons on one of these helicopters would probably not have been able to deliver enough water or foam at a high enough rate at enough of a depth into the building to be very effective, but who knows, it might have slowed the fire down enough to allow more people to evacuate before the actual collapse.

At this point in time, I believe only God knows the complete answer to your question   ;-)

This time, it was about Fallon replacing Leno.

Apparently I’m not destined to ever see the blasted thing.

Strange, when I click on the link it takes me to directly to the correct video. Oh well, that aside, also clicked on the article link from this FR page and then clicked on the Q13 "home" link. At the Q13Fox.com Home page, I typed the words "Man tased 4 times" (without the quotations) into the Search field at the upper right corner of the page, and hit "search". I was rewarded with two hits, one being the correct link that takes you right to the video.

Also, entering "EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Man Tased 4 times fights off police on I-5" (without the quotes) into a Google Search brings the correct Q13 page (as well as this Free Republic page) and other news sites that covered the story and hosted the video.

One of those other sites is the UK Daily Mail, and you can see the same video there as well:

I hope this helps!  If not, I'm suspecting that Communists have infected your computer and are actively preventing you from browsing the internet   ;-)
