Re: Control and Restraint

Another thing with Tasers:

Eventually you got to put your hands on the person to make the arrest. Today, perhaps, most folks comply once you use the taser but once it gets more and more used throughout the culture, I would say, there's a chance that folks that want to NOT comply will simply not comply (like what one can see with pepper spray today) even after tazed. This, on top of everything already facing the use of tasers (e.g. the danger of over-use, not all situations justify taser use, not all situations allow for taser use, etc.) means that one should still be skilled in non-compliant-dependent tactics.

In my opinion,
