I've been tased and I'm still alive, never been shot all the same.
If a taser is not a nonlethal weapon why do the Police use it as such?
Whatever the DA claims a taser doesn't kill you unless you have some kind of underlying health concerns, but it does put you on your arse.

What is the duration is the incapacitation you're describing?
Is it long enough to justify killing another person?
Also, would both officers be incapacitated at the same time somehow?
What's the effective range? Let's say 15 ft.
IF it is 15 ft at the outside IF it is in the hands of an expert and IF the taser functions properly which doesn't happen up to 55% of the time ... and IF ...
We can string together any number of possibilities.
