Calling on the power of Yahweh can apparently make you immune to the effects of police tazers:

Wow, the guy seems like a nutjob but clearly wasn’t hurting anyone. Why were they trying to arrest him? Stop police violence!

Very funny but your comment is mistaken.  It was not Jesus who “protected” him, since he claimed he was Jewish so does not believe in Jesus.

Unfortunately, these police probably didn’t start out as the kind of people who would tazer unarmed and non-violent people. They become that kind of person by way of the corruption of power. We are turning decent people into occasionally evil people by giving them too much power, and by putting them into buddy-buddy environments where they protect their buddies who do evil.

And they should lose their jobs (or at least have a long, unpaid suspension) for abusing the power. It needs to be made clear that their power is by fiat, and can be taken away by fiat. If police are made aware of how fragile their position of power is, then they are much more likely to be humble about the power, and therefore, I think, less likely to be corrupted by the fiat power.

You’ve been watching too much of  The Wire? Well part of its appeal is that it does appear realistic in the sense you implied (whether your comment was inspired by that show or just common sense). Then, of course, there were the Milgrom experiments…

Wow, that guy was sneaky. Sing a song to them to lull them to sleep, and then run away!

Seriously though, aren’t police required to inform the person of the reason for their arrest when they are arresting them? So what was this guy being arrested for? Other than being a crazy nutjob, of course…

Jeff H, I also thought that police HAD to inform you of the reason for your arrest.

I found myself cheering for the crazy (acting) dude in that video. I wonder what happened to him after that?

Yes, and I suspect they would have done so just as soon as they managed to get him cuffed and the situation secured.

Really? I don’t see how putting off telling him the charges could have possibly helped the situation. What’s the rationale?
