A man was tasered by police after he picked up his garden hose and attempted to stop a fire spreading that was threatening to engulf his home.
Dan Jensen, 42, awoke from a nap last Thursday when he hear his wife, Angela, also 42, scream that the house next door at 3420 Beechwood Terrace N in Tampa Bay was ablaze.
When the father of two went outside, the fire had already engulfed his neighbors home and a fence in between the two houses and the flames were starting to lick the corners of the Jensens' home.

They don't let that one pass, generally speaking...
Stupid white hetero male.
By 2016, he’ll get multiple 9mm punctures instead.
He is lucky that they did not shoot him. Officer Friendly has gone the way of the DoDo bird.
You will obey my authoooority. I guess the guy should have the e cops for trespassing because they certainly where not there to serve and protect.
Many years ago in Minneapolis, my mom witnessed a cop beating an old homeless wino. She begged him to stop and he told her to shut the hell up or she would get the same. She never felt the same about the police after that, even though she realized not all cops were like that. Still, such an episode errodes trust.
I wonder what she would think of her great grandson who is a deputy? I think she would be proud anyway.
Stupid free people. They have to be reminded at every opportunity to obey.
Taking the job of a union firefighter is a serious offense.
Police were upset because the homeowner didn’t have a dog they could shoot.
“Sir, in the future, please have a dog available for our officers to dispatch with extreme prejudice.”
Maybe even 2013.
I’m old enough to remember a time when I actually respected cops.
Those days are LONG gone.
And we had to get this news from a Foreign Newspaper?
Land of the Free, Home of the Brave?
Let me guess. The cops are probably union thugs.
Sadly to often true.
I guess he was not licensed to fight fires.
Another case of Cops behaving badly. He’s lucky they didn;t shoot him.
The local WTSP which is Gannet had a article too but the link only in FR stopped me from posting it. Link
