Taser happy? It's really not even the officers place to tell the man he can't try to fight his own fire, let alone tase him for disagreeing.

Charge him for obstruction? What kind of a-hole tells a man to let his house burn? Talk about power hungry. That cop needs to get a job at Burger King for a while. He certainly shouldn't have a badge.

Agreed! If my stuff was on fire and anyone threatened to tase me, i think i would soak them with the hose so they could share in the experience. Unfortunately they didn't have the balls to warn him.

There are times when it seems we would be better off without the government's help, though it is really more like chemotherapy with that which saves your life taking most everything else from you.
