Taser's used today are effective , but you can unload a "can of whoopass'

on only 1 person at a time.

Two companies Rheinmetall and Xtreme Alternative Defense Systems are

close to developing a weapon to control crowds with a single shot.

By shooting out a "lightning bolt" they can incapacitate crowds from 25 feet away.

This is worth a bump just to look at the weapon in the pic in the link

This is crowd control at its best

If they work as planned -- a big if -- "the new breed of non-lethal weapons can be used on many people at once and operate over far greater distances," by ditching the wires.

Except that the taser is not a non-lethal weapon - nor should it be touted as one.

This works great until a child is mixed in with a crowd of peaceful protestors. Or someone with a pacemaker.

The very notion implied that you can generalize a group of people as being suitable targets for this is absurd.

The use of a taser of any kind should require substantial risk to an officer.

Now they'll just be indiscriminately tasing entire crowds.

The pictures is not the Rheinmetall plasma-taser, it's an early version of the Xads device. This was a few years back, Xads have moved on!

Oh, and Tasers are safe with pacemakers - - and if you check the stats, they're actually safer than batons or pepper spray when making an arrest.

The Taser is as much a "non-lethal" weapon as bean-bag rounds or any of the other non-lethals out there - granted it's a misleading term (the police prefer "less lethal") but it's the one that's used.
