    Default Trooper Zaps Driver Over Speeding Ticket

    SALT LAKE CITY - Authorities are speeding up their investigation of a state trooper who zapped a motorist with a Taser now that video of the traffic stop has been posted on YouTube, the Utah Highway Patrol said Wednesday.



    The video, taken from Trooper John Gardner's patrol car, shows him drawing his Taser after Jared Massey refused to sign a speeding ticket Sept. 14 and walked away from the officer on U.S. 40 in eastern Utah.

    A surprised Massey asks, "What the heck is wrong with you?"

    Gardner fires, and Massey shrieks and falls.

    "Face down! Face down! Put your hands behind your back!" Gardner orders.

    A woman screaming hysterically emerges from the passenger side of the sport-utility vehicle Massey was driving, and the trooper tells her to get back inside "or you're going to jail, too."

    there's someone who should never be allowed to work as a cop again and be thrown in jail for a little while. Shouldn't there be a mandatory IQ test that comes before giving someone a badge?

    That was funny Chef!

    I know here you don't have to sign the ticket. They just write on it that you refused to sign it. Well, they used to anyway. I haven't gotten a ticket in a really long time. LOL!!

    What an idiot. The guy is clearly going for something in his pocket. Even if it's not a weapon there's no way to know that. When the cop tells you to go on the ground, you go on the ground. DON'T START REACHING FOR SOMETHING IN YOUR POCKET.

    How the hell does something like that make it to Youtube? You'd think it would stay internal for many reasons. Either way, the cop is screwed.



    But then, maybe I'm answering my own question.....maybe he's a prick all of the time and some people wanted to see him take the fall.

    looks like he was putting his keys in his pocket. Not that it matters. The cop is 100% wrong. He was acting like a cowboy and should soon be unemployed.

    He doesn't look like he's putting his keys in his pocket.

    If a cop says get on the ground, you do it. Period.

    i would have gone to the ground (actually I would have just signed the damn ticket ) but using the taser was completely unneeded. He's gonna get called on the carpet for this.

    I'm just sorry he didn't tase him a few more times.

    People are so stupid. Cops tells you to do something, you do it. Don't argue with him, and act all shocked when you get your ass kicked.

    If anyone has more videos of stupid people getting their asses kicked by cops please post them. I love seeing idiots own themselves at the end of a cops boot or nightstick, and yes even taser.

    you're terrible.

    I'm probably a little sensitive on the taser issue since it's currently a huge story in Canada. A Polish immigrant (who didn't speak English) was tasered in the Vancouver airport and died. He was no threat, just cops being acting like cowboys much like we see here.

    Like any populations, there are good folks as well assholes. I learned the hard way (i.e. jail time) in my wayward youth that anything less than total submission and respect can = bad things when dealing with "Johnny Law".

    Sorry gang, been on the other side of things. This guy was exercising his rights by asking what it was he did to be written a ticket for. The cop refused to tell him. By law, an officer has to reveal the charges at the time of arrest/citation issuance.

    From what I saw in the video, the indication to me is that he had, at best, something flimsy that would get thrown out of court and just didn't want to deal with it.

    The guy was well with in his rights under The Bill of Rights to refuse to sign the ticket until he was told of the charges against him.

    The lady that comes screaming out of the car is the guys wife...VERY PREGNANT wife. As any father here will know, it doesn't take but a mere *hint* of stress in the air to get a prenant woman worked in to a tizzy. Shit like this can cause premature labor.

    The asshat trooper needs to go through tazer training again, REPEATEDLY; until he understands that it's not a toy to play with. Then after he's been reminded of what it feels like.

    THEN.............................................. .................................................. ...............................FIRE HIS ASS!

    Exactly. If this wanker-cop is not fired/sued/jailed for what he did, it is pretty obvious what kind of world we are living in.
    The police do not write the law. They are there to enforce it. Unfortunately, due to bad pay and conditions, very few actually want to become policemen. The result being fuckmook ego-maniacs like this being given weapons and power.
    The cop is basically an insecure little prick who needs a lesson taught to him.
    It is the absolute right of any citizen of a "civilised" country to be able to question. If this is not allowed, a police state is very close behind.
    For those who say, yep, lie down......when you're lying down don't blame anyone but yourself for letting it happen when it comes.

    (I know I said in another thread about knowing the law in your own country and living within it's confines, even if you don't agree with it, but this is not the case here. Bottom line is, a man exercised his rights and was assaulted in the process. The law was broken. One man (maybe) drove too fast....wow. Another man used a potentially fatal weapon to attack a man who obviously was posing no threat whatsoever.)

    Some people just should not get jobs like this.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.
