The video of the naked jogger incident (18 year old Anthony King) is available via the link provided at the bottom of this report [LINK]. Or try this direct video link [LINK].
Pay attention to the seconds counter in the bottom right corner and you might notice that it jumps from 36 to 38 (apparently skipping 37), and then leaps directly from 38 to 46. Either the taser cam clock is an unreliable product, or the video has been edited to shorten the apparent duration of the taser deployment.
One of the false claims used by the fork-tongued stun gun salesmen is that "the five second period of incapacitation allows the officer to handcuff the subject".
That rarely happens.
What actually happens is that the attending officer tells the subject to move his hands to his back while simultaneously tasering him.
I can't be certain because the audio isn't clear, but it sure sounds like the taser is still clacking away while the officer demands that Mr. King place his hands behind his back. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Mr. King "fails" to immediately comply. And thus the taser deployment becomes an endless loop until the attending officer eventually snaps out of it.
The whole concept of operations, perhaps as is being demonstrated in this incident, has 'excessive force' built right in.
No wonder they have to edit-out eight second chunks...
