the whole purpose of taser is providing police officer a nonlethal weapon to safely disarm a non-compliant subject without endangering both officer's and subject's lives because gun is a lethal weapon.
apparently it isn't working well as originally thought. there has been a growing number of troubling cases where officers were quick to use taser that was not necessary and it's because officers want to purposely inflict maximum amount of pain equivalent to Rodney King beatdown.
the only difference between taser and baton is... no bruise. no broken bones.
I do believe taser is a great tool for police officers but I also do believe we need to reanalyze the use of taser.
