Hopefully they will dicuss the importance of STAYING IN YOUR CAR UNLESS OR UNTIL THE POLICE OFFICER TELLS YOU TO STEP OUT!! This sad death could have been prevented if he had stayed in his car. If you are pulled over stay in your car with your hands on the wheel. I am no police officer, just someone that understands the danger police officers put themselves into every day in this mad mad world we live in today.

Understood. However, he was at his home and, more importantly, the officers never told him to get back in his vehicle and instead allowed him to remain where he was.

They let him get out of his truck, put his hands in and out of his pockets and move around THEN they decided he was a threat. Moberly police had it out for him.

Everybody in internet land has seen the video, the cop didn't open his door, he jumped out and locked it and started fighting! And i seriously doubt the local cops have hit list of people to puck with unless you've been previously convicted of DWI and disturbing the peace! In my book your fair game..

Even if you've had previous run-in you still have rights and a couple of cops around here are on the take anyway and probably need drug treatment.

For Civil Rights Sake, cops should quit lying and do their job right or get out. Either be a cop, civilian or whatever but don't be a cop who's on the take.

They're will need to be some serious litigation over the use of tazers and interrogation. Once an individual has been tazered, there should not be any interrogation allowed for a twenty-four hour period due to the brain clusters being scrambled. That would be more of a submissive tactic that could be used to make someone talk.

I like your flag. "Mobtown" What kind of police work here?

Maybe your right about the tazer. Maybe we should go back to the days without the tazer and just shoot them in the leg or something. Obey the law and the law officers and things will be fine.

If you find yourself defending the police in this situation you haven't given much thought to what actually happened and how avoidable this person's death was.
If it had been a state trooper that pulled him over instead of a city cop that pulled him over then nobody would have ever been aware of any of this. The highway patrolmen utilize a hell of a lot of other very effective tools before using deadly force. Officers with sufficient training, back-up officers with sufficient training, ASP's, pepper-spray, etc, not to mention common GD sense.
These cops didn’t use ANY of those important tools, they used the taser from the start.
When you see videos of someone being tased it last for about 1 to 3 seconds and the people are in extreme agony, not to mention they are usually 100% compliant afterward. Now imagine that same 50,000 volts applied to someone for not 3 seconds, but TWENTY-ONE seconds! Then they tased him a second time! Then they tased him a third time! Then they didn’t have the necessary device to revive his breathing that was issued to them for exactly that purpose when a taser is used. He was a 4 minute ambulance ride from the hospital – when did he go to the hospital? The ambulance left like 45 minutes after he had already been electrocuted. WTF?

I just don’t see any rational defense of the police in this.

Does your book happen to be "Das Kapital"? It sure as heck isn't either the bible or the US Constition.

Are you sure that perhaps you haven't taken the bait yourself?

Okay....have u been a police officer. I don't think we should tell people how to do their jobs when u probably cant do it either. I know there are some dirty cops, but all cops aren't bad. Yeah people with previous runins with the law do have rights. But okay do ur job as a citizen and stay out of trouble. They are the reason we have cops in the first place.

WOW so if Moberly PD does such a bad job, then why does everyone still call over petty crap, listen to a scanner sometime. Wait here is an idea, next time someone breaks into your house don't call the police just go buy more useless crap to get stolen, and then you don't have to mess with the police. I read the paper and the arrest reports and for one I am more than pleased with what Moberly PD does.

You love this stuff? If by “stuff” you mean talking about innocent people who die unnecessarily then I’ll take the bait again. Immaturity is something we all deal with and dealing with things in that way is actually a nice alternative to dealing with them in an adult manner. Immaturity definitely has its place throughout blogs and sites like this one and it makes a lot of posts more entertaining. But when you’re talking about someone who has died and their grieving family members it really doesn’t have a place. Joke about it if that’s the only way you’re capable of dealing with it, but I think it is obvious the problem of Stanley Harlan’s death still needs serious attention.
