Why would your dad's first reaction be to grab a taser? Is he completely incapable of differentiating between a happy scream and a real one? Also, why would he assume he's hurting you...?

The underlining problem here is op's dad does not like the boyfriend. Or the boyfriend has a history of abuse. Why else would a scream automatically lead to a tasing?

I think the reason for having a taser in the house is the same for having a gun. Though the dad probably should have checked before activating protect mode.

The thing is that if you shoot someone in the leg, they most likely won't die. If you tase them, it almost doesn't matter where, if they can't take it, they can't. And just because someone's a cop doesn't mean they can tase whoever the hell they want to.

71 - a healthy young adult might be able to take 10 and only go into cardiac arrest once and be brought back... However a 30yr old man died in the UK not long ago from one taser shot. So go figure.

It's very unlikely that someone will have an out-of-the-ordinary reaction (if they have hemophilia, for instance) to a gunshot wound in the leg. Chances of some kind of heart issue that'll make a tase fatal or near fatal are much higher...

True, he should have figured out why OP screamed first, but people shouldn't scream so often. Screaming is for emergencies. When someone screams, it makes sense to think that something terrible happened. Unless you're in real trouble, you shouldn't scream. Its annoying and it hurts peoples ears. Screaming is for calling for help. But also, people should be careful with tasers, you can't just go all trigger-happy and tase people whenever.

Cant he tell the difference between a happy scream and a genuinely scared one? Also, nothing gives him an excuse to just assume he is hurting her and taze him. He should have taken four seconds to actually assess what is happening instead of jumping to conclusions.

If I'm a guy, I don't want anything to do with a father-in-law who will shoot first and ask questions later. What if the next time she screams, it's because she just found out she's pregnant, and his first reaction is to pull out a .45 and open fire? Sorry, but I'd have nothing to do with that family thereafter.
