Shocking police actions
There are regular calls for the Victorian Police to adopt Tasers, usually after they have just shot someone.
People calling for their introduction may want to consider what may happen if some police officers are given a weapon which they are assured is non-lethal. They may get a little trigger happy...:
MIAMI - Police have acknowledged using a stun gun to immobilize a 12-year-old girl just weeks after an officer jolted a first-grader with 50,000 volts.
Police Director Bobby Parker defended the decision to use a Taser on the 6-year-old boy last month because he was threatening to injure himself with a shard of glass. But Parker said Friday that he could not defend the decision to shock the fleeing girl, who was skipping school and apparently drunk.
Found a lot of useful info on your site about stun gun - thank you. Haven't finished reading it yet but have bookmarked it so I don't lose it. I've just started a stun gun blog myself if you'd like to stop byPost a Comment
