It usually takes active resistance to get the charge to stick whether or not it’s used/charged initially.
The back and forth is normal, I have numerous audio recordings of just that, so I didn’t have to fight or drag the drunk out of the car.
It’s not worth either of us getting hurt.
Would I lie and say “you’re getting special treatment”? Hell yes. I’d lie to your face and do it with a smile if it meant I didn’t have to taser, pepper spray or beat you over this.
But people who have never seen that side of the job ever understand it.
Here I show a good cop doing the right thing and naught but criticism.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.
