• Too many risks with Tasers
    March 26,2013
     

    Tasers are seen as “harmless” weapons to help police officers who didn’t get enough training to begin with to subdue obnoxious people. Being obnoxious is not a case for the death penalty, and there have been a few deaths already reported. Even a well-trained officer doesn’t know if the person he’s aiming at has for example a pacemaker or any other of the many conditions that would make the use of the Taser lethal.

    The police shouldn’t use them, and they should definitely not be sold to the public.
