    Man tased for putting out fire

    This homeowner was tased by police for trying to put out a fire. I saw another video a couple days ago with an interview of the homeowner but I can't find it now...doh!!

    I'm not watching the video, but I read an article on it.

    Apparently, he was not trying to put out the neighbor's fire. He was spraying water on the fence and his own house to help prevent the fire from spreading. He was on his own property, and chose to disregard the cops' orders to leave because "that's what insurance is for." So they tased him!!

    Wow!

    Should have just been a good witness then maybe less lethal force would not have been proscribed.

    Was he either OCing or CCing?
