Transit police investigates Caltrain Taser incident

The San Mateo County Sheriff, which patrols Caltrain in all three counties, is investigating a Taser incident onboard a Caltrain after a night Giants game on April 1. On that night, a passenger onboard became enraged. He was later removed from the train by the police and was tased on the ground. At first, the police tried to tase that passenger onboard but missed, and rather skimmed another passenger (who later checked his arm). The tased passenger later appeared unresponsive and was taken away on a stretcher.

Wow, I actually took the midnight train southbound that night. I'm surprised I didn't hear about this till now.

I think...whether or not you are a dirty effing hippie or always think the police are right, tasering someone in the close quarters of a Caltrain is not the best idea.
