      I guess you should not take a cop’s taser and beat him with it. Then try to grab his gun.

      This story is so unbelievable. A 37 yr old go-go dancer? WTF?
      Is San Diego where aging sex workers go to retire? Shaking the cock sock after 29 is not a smart career choice.

      This is not a very good posting. You have not provided sufficient information to go with the headline. Very bad form for a “newsblog”.

      This guy was almost certainly high on crystal meth. As a former addict I recognize the paranoia and irrational aggression.

      1) He wasn’t a go-go boy. He was a passenger.
      2) He fought with the officers once rescued, grabbed at a taser and then reached for a gun, according to the officers.

      I suppose we are just supposed to fill in the blanks ourselves, a little more info would have been appropriate.

      They posted the link to the story. If you want details, what more is necessary?

      The party continued? This is very disturbing. First, the poor guy gets shot to death, and then his fellow partiers are not even upset enough to stop partying? Something is terribly wrong with this story.
