Michigan police taser nude man outside church
ap via Breitbart ^ | Feb 20, 2009 | n/a

Posted on 02/20/2009 6:52:21 PM PST by Jet Jaguar

Going to church brought no peace to a man Tasered by police as he stood in the nude in 27-degree weather. A funeral Mass was being held inside St. Mary of the Assumption Catholic Church when police received 911 calls about a naked man Friday morning. Sgt. Gordon Cameron said the man told officers he was having problems with his parents and wanted to go to church. Cameron told The Bay City Times that the man cursed and verbally abused police before Officer Troy Sierras immobilized him with a Taser, an electronic device that fires barbs causing temporary paralysis.

It wasn’t like he was hiding a weapon.

What was once a case of disorderly conduct quickly became a stick-up.

the man told officers he was having problems with his parents and wanted to go to church.

And how many of us didn't have problems with our parents? Raise your hands! And how many of us took our clothes off and went to church, raise your hands. Thought so.

Tazered? While nude?

That’s gotta leave a mark.

Good thing they didn’t chase him into the church. They might have caught him by the organ.

I guess he did not get the memo that you need clothing for Mass.

No shirt, no shoes, no salvation.

High tech version of the low tech solution: hit him in the dick with a pin on a stick.

Tasering while nude makes the void unavoidable.

We had a local perp find out how effective a taser was recently.

Short version, perp prowling cars, runs from police, hides under porch of a house. Officer sends in dog, perp kicks dog in head twice, Officer recalls dog, "deploys" taser, one of the darts hits perp in testicle. Taser was reported to be extremely effective.

ER staff still laughing about dart removal weeks later.

Obviously the officer felt threatened. Plus he must have been intimidated by what he was seeing, which caused him to feel just a teensy bit inadequate about himself. Thus, his taser response,a show of force, which made him feel just a little less inadequate...partially restoring his own self confidence as a ‘real’ man.

Aren’t THEY the heroes...The cop was “afraid for his life”?

laugh if you must, but the EMS team sent to pick him up for the psych ward was most likely grateful.....bodily fluids get nasty.

Seems more likely that a person would lose control of their bodily functions as a result of being tazed whether clothed or not.

Oddly enough, they weren’t even from there. They were from Scotland (!) and picked the name, maybe by the throw-a-dart method.
