Man Walking Dog Gets Tasered By Police

Man Walking Dog Gets Tasered By Police

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A 40-year-old man walking his dog in the nude was Tasered by police when he refused to follow an officer`s commands. David McCranie of the Tallahassee Police Department said an officer on patrol spotted the man shortly after 8 p.m. Friday.

The man was asked what he was doing and told the officer, `Allah told me to watch a Bruce Willis movie and walk the dog,` McCranie said."

A man walking a dog is a common sight in any neighborhood, but if the fellow is nude then it`s news if the incident doesn`t take place in San Francisco.

After watching a Bruce Willis action flick I feel like mowing down terrorists with an AK-47 or crashing a car, and not doing something as inconsequential as walking a dog. But hey, who can fathom the mind of the Almighty?

We can all be grateful that Allah didn`t tell him to strap the dog with a bomb, and walk in to a McDonald`s and blow it up.

The nude dude was tasered because he failed to comply with the officer`s commands. Duh, someone who is on a mission from God doesn`t need to obey man`s laws. Christian fundamentalists and Islamic extremists listen only to the voice of God, they could care less about the Constitution or any other rules made up by puny human beings.

The nude guy failed to obey the commands of the police; exactly what do you order a nude man nonchalantly walking his dog to do?

Put your hands up?

Or maybe that should be: Put your hands down and cover your family jewels?

According to the AP article the man was sent for mental-health evaluation. I could save the police a few bucks and evaluate the fool myself. You don`t have to be a rocket scientist or a shrink to know that a guy who walks his dog in the nude is bonkers.
