If you have a CPR, First Aid License and you know about all weapons, is it legal to use any non-lethal weapon on cops in self-defense?
Someone who learns CPR and First Aid will know a lot about how to help an injured human being.
If someone with a weapon knows what they are doing and they are prepared to help out if the weapon causes more damage than what they expect, is it then legal to use it for self-defense on a cop?
Once again, AS LONG AS they just become responsible tor any serious injury or illness that they cause the cop to have. But if they just temporarily disable the cop for a short period of time without injuring them, making them ill, or killing them, will they not be charged with anything?

I am certified in adult and child first aid, adult and child AED, adult and child CPR and BBP.
I still wouldn't assault a cop. But then again I don't have reason to do so!
Try not having a reason to do so! Better results!

You didn't mention WHY you would be attempting to disable a cop, but most states have made it a felony to resist an arrest, even if it is an unlawful arrest. Using ANY force is illegal in such a case. However, just the fact that someone happens to BE a cop does not give him or her any magical immunity from criminal laws of self-defense that authorize you to use reasonable force when necessary to preserve your own life.
If you're attempting to kill a cop because he's illegally trying to kill you or someone else, then use any means necessary. You can only be judged by a jury if you're still alive.
Whether or not you have CPR, an AED, or you're inside the emergency department of a trauma hospital isn't relevant.

Having a CPR or First Aid license does not afford you any extra rights when it comes to assaulting cops, no.

A first aid license has nothing to do with anything in such a matter and it will not be considered. With all due respect, this is sort an absurd, ridiculous question.

Let's see.....Assaulting a police officer comes to mind of things you can be charged with.

Knowing how to do CPR doesn't give you any extra rights.

Well your "non-lethal" methods won't matter if you have a bullet in your brain.
