http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pepper_spray)...hmmmmmm. And I'm just taking a guess here, but I bet there was a LOT more pepper spray used than tazers....
Your right, unarmed isn't enough information to determine if the tazing was justified, but I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that a significant percentage of those didn't require tazings, but given the lack of evidence I have to present feel free to chalk that up to opinion.

If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
[ QUOTE=csbrown28;1063505002]Far as the tazer goes....Again, it's all good to "taze the crazy bitch" until that's your 51 year old mother/ aunt/sister whatever, then you'll be pissed she got tazed because she was in insulin shock or having an averse reaction to her medication.
Grabbing a woman and twisting her arm won't kill her, tazers can and have, especially on older people....Using them like harsh language is going to kill innocent people. Not a lot strictly by the percentages, about 3 out of every thousand are seriously injured, but using tazers indiscriminately as you profess, besides causing unnecessary pain, will kill a few people, some who don't deserved to be killed based on their "crimes".
Another report I read, but can't substantiate is another ~500 people have died from tazer use since 2011.....I presume the number of tazings has risen, rather than they have become more lethal.
Were these all unjustified? Of course not, but I'm certain that some were and it will only get worse unless the culture of militarizing the police along with a lack of mental and physical training.[/QUOTE]
how pissed would you be if the cop didn't do everything necessary to stop your crazy ass mother from getting killed in traffic or causing a wreck that killed others? Would we be talking about lawsuits for a cop that didn't do all he could do to restrain a woman walking into traffic on the freeway and evading arrest?
