:righton: My thoughts exactlyUSMC - Retired said:Tasers and stun guns fall under the catagory of weapons listed as "less leathal". Notice that the term is "less lethal" and not "non-leathal". Given that these weapons have on some occations caused the death of thier intended targets, I personally feel that they should not be used in any situation that would not stand up to the test required for use of lethal force. Some LEO's have taken to use them as a form of punishment if someone acts in a way they don't like or resists arrest. Last time I checked punishment for crimes was up to a judge and jury, no the cop on the street.
I disagree strongly. I think they should be used anytime a person may be offering violence, even non-lethal, towards an officer. In other words, when somebody wants to fight.USMC - Retired said:I personally feel that they should not be used in any situation that would not stand up to the test required for use of lethal force.
Yeah! That 7 year old girl was gonna get 'em if they didn't Taser her, and quick!ls1ssdavid said:I'll say one thing short in defense of LEO's.
They should have every mesure to protect themselfs. And they are the one's in the field putting there life's on the line. We should give them the benifit of the doubt.
