    (Pssst....let's all just IGNORE our PERSONAL field testing and ACTUAL USE of the tasers so Hermit will feel better and just go away...)

    AHHH, NOW THAT"S A FAIR QUESTION! Speaking only for myself & what my Dept. has put me through (in training) & the 3 or so deaths here in Phx, allegedly by "tasing", I can tell you those involved had some physical problem whether drug induced or not, that "aided" in their demise. As far as it being "deadly force", again , I can tell you, that having been "tased" myself I was DEFINITELY incapacitated but DID NOT feel like I was going to die. Now I'm not some young guy that is new to all this. I'm your typical balding, overweight, middle-age cop that could have easily keeled over if it was, indeed, deadly. I was around loooooooong before Tasers were ever around & I can tell you they are, overall, lifesavers for the public & LEOs.

    Hermit,if you're concerned that Taser somehow "scammed" the public I think your complaint is with the SEC or some other governing agency. Quite frankly, I couldn't care less about Taser's corporate problems.As far as the effectiveness or "over-effectiveness" of their weapon I couldn't care less. As long As I'm within Departmental policy in regards to its application I'm relatively happy. I think most offs. feel this way, so if you want to start a boycott of Taser by LEOs I think you're going to have to look elsewhere. Perhaps the ACLU can help you
    Can you make a correct policy based in faulty information?
    Do you just not care about the truth as long as policy will cover you backside?

    Or do you just want to rip on the company...

    Most officers here could care less about the red tape the company is going through... we care more about our own safety... Probably hard for you to understand..
    If I sold you a weapon and said I tested its safe there is no change of permanent injury to the person, (that was there stance until Friday) and you took it and used it and it killed someone, would that be ok.

    If I sold you the same weapon and said this will kill 1 in 5000 people would you use it differently based on that information.

    I asked a heart surgeon and a lung surgeon based on these electrical properties what is the risk both said

    are you going to think of them criminals like other law breakers.

    I don't think there is a point. He is apparently on some sort of self declared holy jihad against Taser Int judging by his posts elsewhere on the topic (maybe he is trying to invent a similar weapon?)

    Personally, I have no problem with Taser funding or participating in their own studies. Drug companies do it all the time. You think the prescriptions your doctor writes are from his own research? Besides that, DoD studies use a different criteria than law enforcement. If you got scared and dumped your Taser stock, you're about to regret it. Even with a low probablilty of serious injury or death, the world has yet to come up with a more effective tool for us. As for paying instructors to hawk their products, would you turn down stock options or cash for promoting something you believe in?
    Well, when you leak the contents of a report before if public and sell 68 mil. Shares of stock into the rise it caused is called

    I think that we have hashed this out in your other threads Hermit...

    I believe the outcome was that we all think it is a valuable tool and citizens without real life use of it should not bash its effectiveness or applicability in law enforcement.
