As subtle as a flying brick.

Tase! or “Youtube Justice”

“Officer, I don’t know why you’re doing what you’re doing.”
Refusing to sign a speeding citation in Vernal, Utah? That’s a tasing. Requesting an investigation of the incident? That sounds like a job for YouTube.
And if you sit through the entire thing, you can hear the officer creatively describe the encounter to a fellow officer–“I told him to turn around or I’d tase him.” In other news, the tasee has asked those making death threats against the officer on youtube (which are being investigated by the FBI) to please stop.

I was also struck by the bizarre levels of politeness demonstrated by both parties during the incident.
