Re: Control and Restraint

Most of the local patrol officers around here carry tasers; my impression is that they use them much more frequently than they use force that they *know* is going to be lethal. There's some complaint from the population that is being tased, but they don't get a lot of sympathy. afaik, there has been no serious complication either for arrester or arrestee due to tasers yet, but they've only been in use for a short while.
