To be clear: what this means is that if a park ranger stops you for walking your dogs off leash, you are not to ask any questions or fail to carry the proper ID or you risk being shot through with 50,000 volts. This is now the way things work. Apparently, before the taser, this park ranger would have had to shoot this person in the back with her service revolver.
Tasers have turned cops into thugs who use the weapon to demand not just compliance but respect. Someone who is walking his dogs off leash is simply not doing something that would draw this kind of response for any other reason.
Rancho Corral de Tierra has long been an off-leash walking spot for local dog owners. In December, the area became part of the national park system, which requires that all dogs be on a leash, Levitt said.Zapping citizens with a taser is certainly one way to train them. In a science fiction dystopia.
The ranger was trying to educate residents of the rule, Levitt said
Sadly, that's exactly what tasers are doing: they are training citizens to immediately comply with government authorities on command.
Well, at least we know we're free.
