The only time I can think of is when the civilian pretends to have a gun
You understand tasers don't always work right?

If a person is on drugs a taser could fail to work properly.
@Thisperson98 Well then physical fitness and de-escalation is the way to go. Also, I don't know if they still do this these days in America or if it's just something I see in movies but police officers should never go on patrol on their own.
how can an unarmed citizen possibly be dangerous?
Hmm. Pretend the guy there is John Cena. He would be 10000000x more dangerous then me with a gun. That's how.
dude there's always taser guns and batons that could stop them
There are people so big that a taser might not take them. There are also people who could rip the baton from the cops hand. A gun shoots someone instnataneously. Would you want cops to die from such events?
false false false. still not a good excuse to kill someone. cops already know self defense. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BcgZyldIAAA-bEj.jpg
Then we should allow people buy machine guns.
Good luck girl. I give you maybe 20 minutes until someone robs you and rapes you.
I am being fucking sarcastic!!!
I'm sorry I'm a fuckin idiot I didn't get it
chasing him with the car
How can they stop someone that is on drugs and attacking them?
Also you are forgetting one of the deadliest weapons of all, the human body.
with a taser gun i guess. not deadly at all.
Tasers can stop someone that is on PCP.
You know they carry steel batons right?
well police officers are trained on self defense before they enter the force.
Batons work as good as tasers on people who are on drugs. Also they normally don't have much training. Someone like me could easily best most of them at hand to hand combat.
Someone on drugs not so much,Also sure they might not feel pain but you can't stand on a broken leg regardless of the amount of pcp in your system
@Waffles731 you can stand on a broken leg, well it depends on how it is broken. If it is just a fracture, you can stand on it. It will hurt like hell and damage it more, but you can.
smash a guys leg with a steel baton and you get more than a fracture.Its why the old air force field manuals gave specific places on where you were allowed to hit so not to kill someone
@Waffles731 um, not necessarily. And he still could be a threat with a leg broken. After that what do you suggest? Breaking their other leg and arms?
Its better than killing them
@Waffles731 what after having the cop being killed?
