"Tazers are not an alternative for guns"

Hat tip to Sear and hammer for linking me to study saying:

Tazers don't reduce shootings.

Sorry badthing, sorry all you other proponents of less than lethal weapons for police and/or civillians, they just don't work.
What caught my attention?

  • Taser use has expanded to include subduing resistant subjects who do not pose a threat of grievous bodily harm or death and on whom the use of lethal force would not be an option.
aka: torture.

Yeah but you can buy a taser at a party.

And you know how chickadees like me love a party...
