    I stood out in front of the range of cells and opened a meal tray and broke one of loaves in half. I ate one half and my partner ate the other half...............inmates went nuts calling us crazy but the next day they ate the loaf.

    Bad analogy ----but it is similar

      Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

        The real reason you need to be Tasered, is so the instructor(s) can watch you pee your pants.
        Train for tomorrow, for you never know what it will bring to the fight.
        In the school of Policing, there is no graduation day.

        Arguing on the internet, is like wrestling with a pig in mud. After a while you realize that while you are getting dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.

          it doesnt hurt that bad.before we got tazed we practiced shooting them into a half inch piece of plywood with a shirt on it.After seeing the prong go that deep into a piece of wood ,you then realize how deep its going into your skin also.

          But yea it helps alot more in court because on of the first thing a defense attorney will ask is if you have ever had it done to you.Not good if you say no.If you say yes its hard to say it will kill you .

            My favorite was how in the academy they said it was optional to be tased. Ya cause we were dumb enough to say, "no thanks instructor, I'm good"

              Breakfast food loaf is pretty tasty, if made with biscuit or pancake dough.

                Working night shift. Just got up. 2 in the afternoon. Time for breakfast, wooohooo! No thanks to a loaf though, plain pancakes sounds fine to me!

                  Breakfast food loaf sure beats the Hardtack I carried while hunting.

                    As I work for one of the few agencies left in America that does NOT have Tasers... I laugh at this whole thread. Those who posted the "you weren't shot with a gun" analogy are spot on. I am sure some level of "peer pressure" occurs so people take the ride.

                    I don't think I NEED to experience this in order to understand the fact that 1) it hurts 2) it's temporary 3) you can't fight through a solid hit 4) you will be able to get back into the fight after it's over... slowly.

                      I was certified with the Taser and OC in the academy for my current agency and we did not get either sprayed or Tasered. I was sprayed with a previous agency and that **** sucked.
