        It's not dumb. Your instructor should explain that taking a voluntary exposure lends incredible weight to your credibility as a witness later on in your career. When people complain about "excessive force"; or the TASER did this and that to my client; or you shoot someone who tries to deploy a TASER on you, you having taken this 5 second ride will mean a lot to that jury.

          Does anyone know if this could affect previous back injuries? I have slipped a disc in my lumbar before and was just wondering.

            They should ask about previous injuries prior to administering the exposure. However, if you're healthy enough to PT, you can take the ride.

              DONT do it. its the worst 5 sec of your life. u get pepper sprayed in the academy so u can learn to fight through it and stay fighting, thats not an option with the taser. U might as well shoot ur self in the foot while ur at it!

                Do it!!! don't be scared, it only takes 5 secs! but it will feel like 5 mins! lol...

                But in all reality Sgt is right on the money about testifying in court if your department issues them... Been there and done that, got the T-shirt and the conviction.. I was grilled on the use of the taser and was asked several times why I chose to use it.. When my instructor testified that I was tased during my certification, that ended all those pesky "use of force" cross questions...

                      Gimme a break with this stuff. Are you THAT obtuse?

                      Getting hit with a less-lethal weapon is in NO way similar to shooting yourself.

                      Please....

                        I would rather be TASED then sprayed.....it sucks for 5 seconds but then it's over...OC sucks for hours afterwards!
                        Take the ride and tell the rest that refuse to take the ride thay they can suk it!

                          I'd take a hit from the X3 right now, get up after 5 and be done with it. Wanna pepper spray me? You're likely to get shot!!

                            People telling you how it feels and you experiencing it, is two different things. Even though nothing is 100% effective, it will give you faith in what you're carrying. Listen to Sgt. when he tells you taking the hit will help you in court.

                              On the subject of tasers, if you took the ride once and got the Taser certificate and stuff. Do you need to take it again if you go to another department?
