I got lucky on this shot. Just as a walked up to the fire engine, the deputy chief started climbing to unwind the large flag that had twisted itself around the ladder in the wind. The firefighter gives the photo scale.  Nikon D4,  Nikkor 80-200 f/2.8 lens

After displaying a large knife at the STA Plaza, Tedzo C. Baker was tasered by a Spokane Police officer after a short chase that ended on the 100 block of  N. Wall Street in downtown Spokane, Monday Evening. He was arrested on suspicion of felony assault. Spokane Fire Department paramedics checked him out before placing him in a squad car.

Just as I was leaving work, a call came over the scanner of a police officer chasing a man armed with a knife just a few blocks from the newspaper. I hoofed it over just in time to see paramedics checking the guy out after he’d been tasered by police.  I like the rainbow of colors mixed with the stark flashlight beam on the subject’s face. I’m not totally sure, but I think the paramedics  were taking the Taser prongs out of his chest.  Nikon D700, Nikkor 28-70mm f/2.8
