I was in Tokyo for the earthquake. On podium level at Oimachii station.... F*cking terrifying. I will be back in Japan on Thursday, flying into Fukuoka and making my way up to Tokyo.
I think that now a bit order has been restored that Tokyo will be safe enough.
Thanks for the links...
I know that 5 trained professionals should be able to handle one weaponless person with no difficulty.
I think id tasers were used instead of a gun that is fine. What I think you will find though is that they will be used as a first resort instead of a last resort.
Intimidation should be...
I think that video is an example of why police SHOULD NOT have tasers.
If 5 police can not handle that guy they should not be police.
The guy had no weapon and never tried to harm anyone.
The use of a tazer in that situation is pathetic.
