Of course he should have tasered him, well done that man

A cop who tasered a a scrote has been cleared. The crim claimed he was backing away…I say that is attempting escape, just as well he was tasered.

The police conduct watchdog has cleared an officer accused of inappropriately using a Taser to arrest a man who was backing away when he was zapped with the high-voltage weapon.

Bruce Robert Roulston made a formal complaint against the officer last year after he was Tasered in the driveway of his Christchurch home in 2010. 

The Independent Police Conduct Authority (IPCA), in its report released today, has found the officer was justified in using the Taser.

The complaint was made after police released footage from the Taser, which showed Roulston backing away from the officer about 12 seconds before the Taser was fired.

The IPCA said the footage provided only “a brief snapshot of the incident and does not fully portray the situation that the officers were facing”.

It found the officer could not have arrested Roulston without using the Taser.

How about a taser sword.

    It’s a waste of money that this is even getting investigated, the guy assaulted two people, including hitting a cop with a brick. The cops should have a “wanker” setting on their tasers for guys like this. What should be getting investigated is why an obviously violent crim is only getting community service for assault with a weapon ( on a cop). It must be a hell of a hard job keeping morale up in the police when the cops know that the courts don’t really value their welfare that much.

    Dropkick x tasering = just a little more respect for the law.

    They got it wrong the officer should have been sanctioned for not discharging the taser longer or for not administering another shock.Community service for assault with a weapon, honestly what do they have to do to get a jail sentence.
