Nope, nonlethal weapons (tasers, pepper spray, etc.) are the first
resort as soon as someone appears not to be complying.
Shooting you to death is the last resort.
That's some scary stuff, i had no idea the police were allowed to use such things in such a manner, especially dealing with something like a peacefull protest, and used in such a hap hazard manner......still very shocking to see.
