    I think more officer should carry these and when carrying this. Too many times is deadly forced used when either it shouldn't have been or there wasn't any danger at all.

    watching that video actually kinda makes me want to get one, but i've heard they aren't cheap, and really whats the point if i can ccw.

    There are studies that show that taser hits may be more damaging in the long run than people had thought originally. They're still better than getting shot.

    I don't think theres a huge problem with police using lethal force excessively, it seems quite well controlled to me. Most officers already carry batons and OC so I don't see a different less lethal tool doing much against those to who escalate force incorrectly. I don't want officers to get killed because they're afraid to go for their gun and they waste time fiddling around with a taser instead. i think that sets a dangerous behavior pattern for criminals too if they think they can be more agressive to cops at little risk to themselves.

    126 deaths from the last 5 years from taser use actually. The latest one being a wheel chaired women without a gun.

    You want to let a 53 year old woman hit you in the head with a hammer or take a swing at you with a knife? I would of used taser or OC on her too.

    she wouldn't get a swing off. i''d go in so hard and tackle her ass, making her lose the weapons upon impact. then i would cuff her. then again, this only happened in my own little happy world.

    This happened last weekend.

    Anyways I was at work and I get a report of a 4 or 5 foot rattlesnake by one of the pools. I dont have any sticks at work and it was 10 o clock at night so I tried calling animal control. No one home, So I do the next best thing I call the police. 2 cops show up with a 410 snake charmer. I dont want them shooting as a first resort and wakeing everyone up in the condo so the rookie has the brilliant idea to spray the snake with his OC.

    Bear in mind this is the Texas coast and the wind is generally 14 - 20 mph at all times of day. I know whats comeing so I pull my shirt over my mouth and nose, turn my back and close my eyes. Sure enough the rookie OCed himself with blowback.

    I would have fell over laughing if there wasnt a very pissed off rattlesnake 5 feet away from the guy. I led the cop away while his partner grabbed a shovel and pried up a board from the deck I used one of their stick to pull the snake out and the other cop chopped its head off with the shovel.

    I'm not tackling anyone with a blade in there hands. If she was swinging it at them, they probably would of been justified to use deadly force she's lucky she only got the taser.
