    Eventually there will be too much blood on the hands of Tasers for their continued use.

    .38 caliber service revolvers are so much better, aren't they?

    Uh-huh.... Even when it's determined the death was actually caused by other means.

    I am feel for the deceased's family. This is terrible. However, if one disrupts the public order, one is going to deal with law enforcement, and then it is out of the hands of the disorderly if they don't submit. It is really that simple.

    If you are being abused by a police officer, simply make sure that you know who she or he is. As my uncles and cousins made sure the county sheriff's office always understood: "Always be fair."

    Let's imagine for a moment that everybody that has ever been shot with a taser was shot with a .38 caliber police service pistol instead.
    Feel better yet?

    Depends where he got shot. Besides, the officer could of fired a warning shot. There is no warning shot with a taser.

    More idiocy from the Dog. Yup the cops should have just shot him 3 or four times that would have solved the problem. And I love how when an adult his 18 or 19 and certain people want to portray them as a victim they call them teens.

    Verbal warnings rarely work in the heat of a fight. 9 times out of 10, it will not probably work.
