I don't get why they used a taser, but let's bring up some facts. He was a vandal, not a "graffiti artist." It was a misdemeanor, but when he fled and resisted arrest I believe it became a felony.

When a cop says stop, they mean stop.

He should have stopped, from what I understand it would have been community service is all.

As usual hindsight is always 20/20 when it comes to us armchair law enforcement officers.
