First off, I believe police should be able to hit your ass with a taser.
What is better a bullet or 50,000 volts?
Personally I would prefer the voltage. It isn’t going to kill you. The mA (milliamps) are way to low to cause any real damage.
Now a bullet is going to make a mess.
The whole reason tasers were developed is as a means of less than lethal persuasion.
But, when I see stories like this I have to wonder…Why police don’t use them MORE.
Police Hit Grandmother With Taser Gun Five Times
Why five? Well, the taser records how many times the trigger is pulled. That is why we
FRANKLIN, Ohio -- A 68-year-old woman was hit with a Taser gun by police in an Ohio city five times.
OMG! 68 years old!!! Five Times!!! Gun!!
According to police, she came into the station to be arrested for hitting her granddaughter.
Kidwell (68) said she waited a long time in the lobby and, when she got up to leave, the officer hit her with the Taser gun.
AND.......... You hit your granddaughter, get arrested, and think it is taking to long so you try and leave?
"I don't know if he thought I was going to get up and leave or what, but he pulled his gun. I thought it was a gun. I'd never seen a Taser gun in my life and I thought, 'Oh my God. He's going to shoot me. He's going to kill me," Kidwell said.
Are you seeing it? I am seeing it. The GLARING CONTRADICTION!
Kidwell said she was in a fetal position and unable to move when the lieutenant ordered her to get up and continued to shock her. The woman survived five jolts and had to be taken to an area hospital.
Seems her lawyer or family member called the reporters first. That last line needs to read:
"The woman survived five gun shot wounds and had to be taken to an area hospital."
