Police, Tasers and City Centre Madness

Filed under: Opinion — admin @ 11:51 am

Police in Nottingham have been videoed using a taser stun gun 3 times on a man who was causing a disturbance outside a nightclub on Monday night. The whole incident was videod by a member of the public. Not only was the man stunned twice by Taser, it also shows the Police punch the man on his upper body. This incident has now been passed to The Independent Police Complaints Commission who after watching the video, thinks there may be grounds for further investigation. Truth is, the video fails to show how confrontational the man might have been before the Police took action to taser him.

Police in England and Wales will soon receive up to 6000 extra stun guns after a successful 12 month test period. The stun gun has two darts on wires which when fired can contain up to 500,000 volts. There are strict guidelines for the use of taser guns in this country.

Today‚Äôs binge drinking culture, lack of respect for authority & pubs selling alchohol through the night can sometimes make a City Centre resemble a war zone. It’s understandable that Police need more protection and Tasers might be the way forward. Knife crime is a problem amongst the young but mix alchohol and drugs into the equation and we have a recipe for disaster waiting to boil over within our City Centres over the weekends.

Below are images taken by Polish photographer, Maciej Dakowicz, highlighting what goes on after the sidewalks have been rolled up and the late night revellers take over.
