538 Taser-Related Deaths in the United States Since 2001
The above linked list even just starting with 2009 alone, is too big to fit on an ATS post by itself.
At least those criminals knew they had it coming for a long time, and then some for the long bureacratic waiting period on taxpayers bill, and even a chance of pardon, and worst case scenario a lavish meal of their choice, a drink, a cigar smoke or other final wished only after which a bag put over their head for decency, and the button pushed. However you see, everyday civilians with petty brushes with so called 'law' enforcement, have no such luxury.
Across North America, close to 4000 perfectly healthy people annually die from choking on food. In fact, food-choking kills more people than firearms or airplane accidents.
You can find the study here:
•“All evidence suggests that the use of CEDs carries with it a risk as low as or lower than most alternatives”
•“There is currently no medical evidence that CEDs pose a significant risk for induced cardiac dysrhythmia in humans when deployed reasonably.”
•“The risks of cardiac arrhythmias or death remain low and make CEDs more favorable than other weapons.”
•“The literature suggests a substantial safety margin with respect to the use of CEDs when they are used according to manufacturer’s instructions.”
•“90% less suspect Injuries"
•“CED use is associated with a significantly lower risk of injury than physical force, so it should be considered as an alternative in situations that would otherwise result in the application of physical force.”
