Strike One-Half

Hallelujah!  No taser or gun was fired!  

I am pleasantly surprised that, in a struggle with a combatant citizen, the Spokane police officers were able to subdue him without firing their guns or using their tasers - and in this case, it would probably have been justified.  Read about it at KREM.  My philosophy regarding police action has always been that their training should (and does) involve resolving conflicts through a process that avoids at all possible the use of deadly force.  And I consider tasers to be deadly force.  In this case, the officers faced continuous attacks from the resident.
