For those interested: US top court refuses to review Taser gun use by cops - Yahoo! News
Tuesday's decision by the prestigious nine-member panel follows a ruling by the US Ninth Court of Appeals that determined the defendent officers "did not violate (a) clearly established law" but did indeed use "excessive force."
No, tasers are acceptable if a person is not cooperating.Is using a taser to arrest a noncoperative but nonviolent person "excessive force"
i understand the possible health implications of being tased,
but it seems like theres more possibility for harm
trying to over-power and subdue someone physically.
the person always has the option of cooperating and avoiding either one.
