The Portland Press Herald reported yesterday that a 39-year-old man from Portland was tasered by Westbrook Police on Spring Street Friday night.
Judging from the facts contained in the Press Herald dispatch (here), I suspect the tasered man neglected to read Westbrook Police Chief Bill Baker's op-ed piece (here) from the January 10 edition of that paper. Otherwise, he would've adhered to Baker's three tips for avoiding confrontation with the Westbrook Police.
Just shows you that it is occasionally worth it to wade through the op-eds in the morning. At the very least, you'll learn how to avoid being tasered. Bro.
