We had 6 do it this time around....and *GASP* none of them died! Amazing.
Well, how many times did you taser them? Once, or multiple times? Any of them over 55 or had a history of heart trouble? Or are they generally fit and capable of chasing down a fleeing suspect?
Now if you tasered 6 people over 55 with heart trouble multiple times (5+) and none of them died, then I'd think that's amazing.
Don't get me wrong, I think everyone should have a taser. But I think it's use should continue to be viewed as harsh force. I think the concern is that its easy to slip into a mindset that you can easily pull the trigger without any consequences.
Though, I'm looking forward to the day when we figure out how to safely ionize air with a laser to deliver current in a handheld weapon.
