I'm really concerned by this.

This sounds terrible to me- just- I'm sick of hearing about so many stories where people get tased and how painful it is- and now they can shock 3 people at once? That just sounds- I don't know how to even describe it. It's just shocking to me. No pun intended.

This sucks. What they should be doing is taking away the existing tazers. Cops have more than proven that they can't handle them.

Terrific! Now, instead of killing just one of us...they'll be able to pop off three of us pesky terrorists!

Three people at once.

What if two people give up after the first shock and the third still wants to fight.

Does this improved taser only shock just the one still fighting or all three.

How does the officer control who gets shocked.

And in the heat of a fight will the officer be able to think clearly enough to decide who need to be shocked more or just fry all till the last one gives up.
