I agree with Jiro that tasers are over-used and often resorted to because it's easy and fast not becaues it's necessary.
But the suggestion that over-use of tasers could be addressed by police having more hand-to hand combat training is just ridiculous. Women on the police force would be at a serious disadvantage, in spite of all the female warriors we see on (fictional) television shows.
