Nothing will stop the burgeoning use of tasers until the son or daughter of some politician or some senior policeman &c is in the wrong time at the wrong place and is killed by a taser.

He was just announcing the arrival of himself in plural. I think he's probably talking to himself in the mirror too - just like his lieutenant comrade.
On the conspiracy side maybe the underling who fired the taser that resulted in the first death killed his commander to cover himself. Either way two unnecessary deaths thanks to one guys action - when will they learn.
