Tasers Safer Than Guns Wodensdays Rant


Taser
Originally uploaded by Sydney Weasel.
Taser stun guns are now in use in most Australian state and territory police forces, but the debate about their safety continues to rage around the world. In the United States, where the American Civil Liberties Union has been fighting a running battle with the stun gun’s manufacturers, two deaths have been linked to Tasers in the past two months. While in Britain a review of the use of Tasers published in the Journal of Clinical Forensic has recommended they be made more widely available to police.

Civil liberty groups would be upset by them. It's appropriate for police use, not personal use.
