Naked man walking dog Tasered by Tallahassee police

"A 40-year-old man walking his dog in the nude Friday night in northwest Tallahassee was Tasered by police when he became belligerent and refused to follow an officer’s commands."

COMMANDS, no less. Sheesh.

"An officer on patrol spotted the man about 8:15 p.m. in the 2200 block of Hartsfield Road, said Officer David McCranie of the Tallahassee Police Department.

When asked what he was doing, the man told the officer, “Allah told me to watch a Bruce Willis movie and walk the dog,” McCranie said.

“He was obviously having some sort of emotional distress,” he said. “It was unfortunate we had to use the Taser. … It was the only way we could subdue him without having to hurt him.”

Okay, enough is enough. To any and all members of law enforcement who want to learn how to subdue someone without "hurting them"...and its a good thing that tasers don't cause ANY harm...drop me an email and maybe we can schedule some sort of training.

Pretty soon, every mentally disabled person will have been tasered by the cops for one reason or another, and that's a shame. Guess we should be thankful they didn't find it necessary to shoot the dog.
