You can always rely upon some sections of the mainstream media to pass comment and judgement on situations which they have absolutely zero first hand experience of.
For example, they have had much pleasure in sharing the fact that a 13-year-old was tasered by the Police in 2017.
Funny that, as they also constantly report of kids of a similar age who have been attacking each other with knives….
Do the mainstream media think that during a violent altercation, then the police should ask everyone to stop throwing punches and biting them in order that people’s ages can be established?
And then if it transpires that one of the individuals involved with fighting with the police is, for example, 13, then what? Just take the punches?
Of course not.
And yet some sections of the mainstream media seem to think that just because someone is aged 13, then they cannot be violent.
Try telling that to the families of loved ones who have been murdered at the hands of young teenagers.
I wonder also just how many large fighting dogs these reporters have managed to subdue with their bare hands?
They must have been successful in wrestling big fighting dogs, otherwise why would they make a point of the fact that the police have had to use tasers in order to subdue dogs which have gone for them?
And, of course, let us not forget the fact that the police have had to use tasers on ‘elderly people’.
Because, according to some reports, when you are old then you clearly automatically become frail and unable to cause harm to police officers.
You don’t have to be a 20-something adonis in order to inflict injuries upon a police officer.
Maybe these reporters just assume that once you are over a certain age, then that’s it – you become frail and vulnerable.
Yet again, another clear indication that being cooped up in a office often will mean that you become detached from reality.
At the end of the day, if you do not want to have a taser fired at you, then don’t act aggressive towards the police. Don’t threaten them and don’t elect to fight with them.
It does not matter how old you are (despite what some reporters seem to think) – if you have a propensity for violence then you can expect to be dealt with accordingly.
It’s all very well the likes of Amnesty International criticising the police for daring to use a taser on violent suspects, but how many violent suspects have they had to detain?
So who are they to tell the police what they should and should not be doing?
Just remember this handy advice:
If you do not want to be tasered by the police, then comply with their lawful demands and don’t act in a violent or threatening manner.
It really is that simple.
