I’ve written here about tasers over and over and over again. A quick search on WordPress shows me somebody else wrote about it just a few weeks ago. The Detroit Free Press talks about yet another instance today.
How many people have to die from tasers before we stop referring to them as non-lethal weapons?
If they weren’t classified as non-lethal, they wouldn’t be used so readily, and fewer unintended deaths would result.
Even when they don’t result in death, they get overused. There is no justification for tasering anybody 12 times.
