Why, because it doesn't sell papers! Violence sells like horse crap for manure! Tasers have time & time again been proven safe and effective. The problem has not been as you report (over use) but one of it being used when lethal force should have been instead for officer and bystanders safety! Get real and get off the cops backs! Maybe you should thank a cop for what they do, but no that would not make sense! You might be embarrassed or scared since we are sooo intimidating and mean! I am sick to death of all this police brutality BS! That is what it mostly is! Sure some cops mess up just like you and I mess up. What, you're perfect?! Well excuse me!
Sorry for the rant but I had to get it out! The truth hurts doesn't it?! Think about what our society would be like without the police! Off my soapbox for now. How about a little positive news maybe?!
where exactly did I say that all cops are bad? where did I say taser should be banned? did you not see the part where I asked if cops can do better?
could officers have done it better? Do they need to improve or learn an effective hand-to-hand combat training like Steven Seagal? Do we need to make a better version of taser like a stun baton in Demolition Man movie where it doesn't involve spastic movement and blood-curling screaming?
that's not a negative tone. that's a progressive question... meaning it actually benefits you and all police officers since we're taxpayers and technology experts. we make tools for you in order to do your job better.
so what would you like to have in order to effectuate an arrest on non-compliant person resisting arrest? better hand-to-hand combat training? a better tool than taser? what?
