Of course he got tasered! What more justification would you require to not taser the punk?

Kid didn't register for the event, just barged in with cops in tow.

Cops are actually supposed to tazer someone before dragging them out, it's considered less dangerous

I've been tazed by a friend before. I laughed cuz it wasn't that bad. I hear a Stun gun is MUCH worst.

This is what The State of CA pays me to do. Sit online all day and read news and post here.
Oh and answer the phone(real job).

Two people after having a long online romance ( prince of joy and I forgot her ID) decide to meet and it turned out they were allready married to each other
They are both seeking divorce for attempted affair.

Kinda sounds like "The Pina Colada" song, but with a different ending.

I found this. Not sure if it's what you saw/heard. They're from Bosnia.

Edit: In regards to BDG's post on the married/online dating couple.

Can't say anything about tazers, but stun guns are not fun if you're on the receiving end. I know from personal experience.
