"Taser Nation"

Jan 17th, 2012

Radley Balko explores the rapid increase of Taser use by law enforcement and takes aim at the methodology of those deeming them "safe:"

"Tasers may indeed be safe when used on "healthy, normal, nonstressed, nonintoxicated persons," but it’s unlikely someone who meets all of those criteria would be a legitimate Taser target in the first place. It would only be a slight exaggeration to say the study's real conclusion is that Tasers are only safe when they're used on people who shouldn't be Tasered."
