The flying a plane analogy is a poor one. I probably already have more skill with my Glock than some police, when to use it is the issue.
Yeah but you have admitted that your experience with violent situations as a matter of course, is zero. Seems to me your in a position of not realizing that there are things you just don't know about situations like this. Otherwise you certainly wouldn't have made the comments that you made.

incorrect. there are lots of unprotected parts of your body that a vest does not cover. that's a massive threat. this is an easy no-bill.

@ the fake Sean Coombs.

A taser will work anywhere on the body. Obviously a vest only covers the thorax.

You're as bad at this as you are at biblical interpretation.

Iím done coddling criminals, had this woman grabbed this officerís gun, and not his taser, we would have another dead cop.

You can thank obama and the MSM for the hostile environment LEOís face everyday on the job. I donít blame cops for being hyper vigilant to threats of violence. Thank God the officer was not injured.

so, you don't have a problem with anyone, i.e. this suspect, wrestling a taser out an officers hand and then actually discharging it at that officer.
I don't think anything is clear and obvious from the video I've seen other than this officer seemed to have weak ground fighting skills. Is it known for a fact that she had his taser? And since he'd already fired it, she would have had to get in close proximity to use it as a stun gun. All the video I've found has audio only at the point when he fired but it appears she was on the ground and he was on his feet with distance between them when he shot her. How much real danger was he in at that point?

I have Bose speakers connected to my computer. The audio is awesome.

She had the tazer, you can see her use it. She was close enough to be a threat, which is reaching distance. There are no ground fighting classes in the police academy.

She had his tazer and he had every right to shoot her. She had no right to freedom, she had bench warrants for her arrest. She had no right to take his weapon. Rangers are going to have an easy job on this one.

Once a taser has fired barbs are you saying it autoloads to do so again?

And the torso ("thorax" - what is this cop, an insect?) is where police and basically everyone else aims with a taser. Because it's the vast bulk of your body and easiest to hit.

Lol.
You can taze someone in the foot and the effects will be the same.
Go look up thorax and report the definition back to us.

yes. it has two shots, then it is placed on the body and it still functions.

Research shows the recitivism rate to be much lower when the criminal assumes room temperature...
