I'd be this is one reason that police resort to the use of firearms and deadly force.
Not always but sometimes. If my job demanded that I peacefully confront and
deal with violent people, even on the days that I might not feel so good, or want
to hassle with dirtbags ... I think I'd resort of the Taser or the nightstick or the gun
I've always thought it was unreasonable to expect police to have to deal with
criminals or out of control people in some kind of fair right ... the criminals have
stepped over the line and the law has a right to respond reasonably, which I do
not think should mean having to risk life and limb unnecessarily on behalf of
people who do not even care about their own lives or limbs.
I am not talking about officers being able to be out of control, so do not mistake
I hope all the officers are OK and I hope the city rethinks its Taser policy, which I
believe is no Tasers? Is that right?
This so-called opportunity center is just an excuse to cause Palo Alto a ton of problems. Time to shut it down.
With a record like this, I would nominate Mr. Lay as one of the 20 most special people to share in our recently announced $250,000 grant for the most seriously "at risk" homeless people in Palo Alto.
The guilt-ridden Palo Alto City Council has determined that we identify the most dangerous and criminal homeless people and spend $12,500 on each to change their lives for the better.
By his actions, Mr Lay appears to have a high risk of recidivism into felony assault. Surely this is someone we should be encouraging to live in our fair city! Just a short walk from Palo Alto High.
Agree with all of you, especially "CrescentParkAnon". Criminals seem to have more rights than law enforcement. Police officers have to put up with so much crap. I had no idea tasers were illegal here - time to bring them back.
Wonder what kind of punishment Lay will get. Probably less than what those officers endured.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
