A police officer from the US is going viral after sharing a recent video he made to show how hard it is to confuse a taser from a gun.
The news comes after a veteran officer shot dead Daunte Wright with claims that it was an accident and she had intended to use her taser but pulled out her gun instead.
In the video which is going viral now, the police officer shares the major differences between both a gun as well as a taser. Moreover, he describes how it is so hard to confuse both weapons from one another.
The video was recently posted on TikTok by the name of the user Brian1504.During the clip, viewers get the chance to appreciate how the cop attempts to loosen his belt with the two weapons.
And that’s right before he taps his gun, which he calls ‘dominant’.Next, he takes out his taser and labels it as ‘not so dominant. ’
At the same time, the clip shows how the officer goes and sits down, right before mentioning how there is a massive difference between the weight of the two objects, forget about all others things. “I simply don’t understand how a person can mistake a taser for something like a gun or a gun for a taser,” he boldly explains.
“Even if you are in the heat of the moment, and you attempt to do something as silly as that, you certainly don’t belong in this job,” he reiterated confidently.
“I am certainly not going to be willing to put my life on the line and then attempt to fix the stupidity that comes with dealing and restoring the peace with members of the general public that happen due to my stupid actions,” he exclaims with rage.
The officer also added how the recent shooting of Daunte Wright made zero sense at all. He also added how 99% of the job in the police has to do with communication and that means you don’t need to be so swift at pulling out a gun or even a taser.
