I'm pretty sure the guy in MN (or the cop in MN) didn't have this internal debate that we're having here.
And if two parties are both looking for a fight, and one of them has a gun and a taser, I know who I'm gonna bet on in the fight. He might lose in court later (and there's no follow-up evidence to say that was the case), but I know which one is gonna get his *** kicked.
Seriously, watch the Chris Rock video. It'll tell you and everyone else "HOW NOT TO GET YOUR *** KICKED BY THE POLICE"
