Pistol or Taser? Taser or Pistol?

A mentally ill person in a tree. An officer who needs to get him down. An officer who has trouble distinguishing his taser from his pistol (although, in fairness, the force may have a policy requiring them to be holstered next to each other).

The reaction of the victim? "He said, 'Ow, that hurt. I'm coming down, I'm coming down.'"
