Taser! Taser! Taser!

By Marvin Preston, LT, NH DOC

These three words have changed our department’s use of force employment.

Sgt Steve Johnson stood behind me. I was supported by Capt Scott Lambertson and Lt Boynton. This was the moment I had been cautiously waiting for. I heard Steve say the three words but it seemed like time was slowing down with each one. Taser! T a s e r! T-a-s-e-r-r-r!. The first feeling I remember was the feeling like I was punched in my lower back. Then it felt like I was on fire. Then it seemed like it wasn’t going to end. My mind was racing, “get away from this!” and “Steve, TURN THAT THING OFF!” Neither happened and it was over. The longest 5 seconds of my life. But what was more important at that moment was that I had to make sure he didn’t pull that trigger again! full story
