A Taser is hardly "vicious weaponryC as Kyle Cox's Tuesday column stated. The whole point of a nonlethal, safe weapon is to avoid bringing out the actual "vicious weaponry.C

Is being Tased a painful experience? Obviously, and that's exactly the point. Tasers are an effective and efficient means of rendering an uncooperative subject cooperative.

Anyone who's seen the video saw that perfectly demonstrated. The student involved had plenty of notice and the actions taken by the UPD officers were justified.

Anyone who refuses to follow instructions given by police officers, violently resists them and continues these actions after being warned deserves to be Tasered. Then he or she will comply and officers can do their jobs.
