Imagine that you're a cop though. You're on duty at one of the most lusted after targets in the world -- an airport. Some foreign guy's passport is flagged and starts acting a fool. You've been trained to approach every situation while considering the worst. The guy could have a bomb strapped to his chest. Do you believe he does? No, you believe in the inherent goodness of people, but then you recall your comrade who believed the same thing, and was shot point-blank in the face when casually approaching the driver's window after a minor traffic violation.

So, the foreign guy who doesn't speak a lick of English, whose passport has been flagged, who begins to act "aggressive", could potentially have a bomb strapped to his chest. Would you tackle him or tase him?

Ok, so say the cop is right in tasing the guy at first. Fine. That isn't what is in dispute. He accomplished his goal after tasing him once, most definately after the second one. WHy do it again for 3 more times.

That's like a cop that has to use physical force to put down the subject,handcuffing him, and then continuing to beat on the person.

At some point a line is crossed.
