Another case

In DeKalb County, Georgia, a grand jury found that 1 in 12 fatal shootings by the police are unjustified and in one case a medical examiner planted evidence to help officers.

Given that swill, what kind of solution do you think is necessary? How about handing the officers Tasers to run wild with?

Given the growing Taser files here, does this sound like a good idea?

An inmate who may have been acting strangely because of a mental illness, two Los Angeles County sheriffs deputies decided to Tase him, causing the inmate to fall from his bunk, breaking his back, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. The news report says that the protocol was clear - the mental health evaluation team should have been called in if the man was in the bunk.

The deputies have been reassigned pending investigation.

So, was a Taser the best choice to subdue the clearly violent situation, given the "non-non lethal" reputation of this device, particularly since it was used on a minor?

The woman in the video didn't follow orders to produce her drivers license after multiple requests by the officer; after trying to get her to put her hands behind her back, she was Tased.
