Babcock said Hesterberg had repeatedly asked the ranger why he was being detained. She didn't answer him, Babcock said.

"He just tried to walk away. She never gave him a reason," Babcock said.

The ranger shot Hesterberg in the back with her shock weapon as he walked off, Babcock said.

In December, the area became part of the national park system, which requires that all dogs be on a leash, Levitt said.

The ranger was trying to educate residents of the rule, Levitt said.
Brilliant.

Really surprised to see this kind of behavior from a Ranger, they are usually very cool people and will just give you a warning and walk off. Used to live in the SF Bay Area too, and the rangers at the Benicia Park I went to regularly were great.

Actually, I don't think I've ever seen a ranger equipped with a tazer - or any weapon at all. Is this part of our new Police State movement?
