FORT WORTH, TX - The Fort Worth Police Department will soon be facing a second lawsuit related to the use of taser devices by officers. An attorney for 29-year old Marcus Swiat is prepared to file a civil lawsuit in the next few days. A bystander captured video of Swiat being tased up to eight times by several officers outside a downtown bar last year. ... Officers are also seen kicking Swiat, who has since moved from the North Texas area. Swiat's attorney, Brian Eberstein says Swiat was later acquitted of the charges against him, including public intoxication. ...Chief Jeffrey Halstead has recently called for improved taser training, which is set to begin next year.

Chief, it's not "improved" taser training. It's replacement training to repair the mental damage caused when police trainees have taser darts fired into their back, thereby electrically fusing their assholes directly to their brain stems. Judging by the outcomes, they're thinking with their poop-chutes.
So Chief, who exactly supplied your existing training? Is it fair to describe it as "defective"? Hey, just asking!
And all caught on video!
I swear to God that there will one day be an example of such feral cop abuse caught on fricken Imax 70mm 3D film with 7.1 channel surround sound.
The first question in court will be, "Officer, at what point did you and your collegues notice the 300-strong film crew from NHK Japan and the Discovery Channel USA filming your activities?"
Anyway, the city police in Ottawa Canada set up 'Use of Force' training and it appeared to help. It's not a cure-all, but they're doing better than localities that lack such training.
First grammatical tip: lawful 'force' is a noun, not a verb.
Second tip: do not trust people selling sh_t. They're salesmen. What? Did you really expect them to have your best interests at heart?
