Bible VS Stun Gun

As much as I am taken aback by this story (linked in title) of Jerseyville Police who used tazers to take down a kid yelling "I want Jesus" and waiving a bible, I must be consistent.

This young man did not obey and respond to the authorities when they attempted to calm him. They used a tool they have when someone is unruly and not responding to their requests. They tazed him twice. He is now dead after having being taken to an ER.

A horrifying situation? Yes. The truth is that he should have responded and submitted to police authority. Even if the kid was unarmed and doing nothing wrong, he should have submitted.
