The Salt Lake Tribune - Moments after a Hurricane police officer twice deployed a Taser on Brian Cardall on the side of a southern Utah highway earlier this month, other officers at the scene apparently conferred about how they could make the officer's actions appear justified. [LINK]
"Did he come after you?" an officer whispered at Hurricane police Officer Ken Thompson, who shot Cardall twice with a Taser, once when Cardall was already incapacitated and laying on the ground.
"Huh?" Thompson replies.
"He went right at you?" another officer asks Thompson again, later.
"Yeah," Thompson replies, flatly.
This isn't going to look (sound) good in court.
Sometimes I think that there could be a 24-man, 6-camera Imax film crew ten feet away, and the police would still completely forget that they're being recorded.
