I dont fully disagree with that at all. My main point was what is the alternative? Getting tackled and subdued by several officers at once? What happens at that point fists, boots, nightsticks? Is this safer than a tazer, less damaging?
I do not argue that the police are not using excessive force at times but I'd rather they have a less lethal option. You may die if you are tazed but you will die if you are shot .

i was tasered in Oregon while I was being held down face down. it lasted more than two minutes until I passed out. I didn't regain consciousness until over a day later in the hospital. police are out of control with tasers. people have died from them. they are killer weapons.
