Rule #128: Arming cops with tasers

 The united nations committee against torture said "Taser electronic stun guns are a form of torture that can kill". Well I guess that's a true statement. But like most government organization blatherings, it doesn't really say much. Too many subjective words that absolve them from any kind of commitment like "form" and "can". It's like saying "trees are a FORM of torture that CAN kill". Think about it, you could fall out of a tree in the woods and lay there for days before you're found. Dead. So we should cut down all the trees!
It's true.. tasers can kill. But guns will kill. If a cop is pointing 2 weapons at you, one being a taser, the other a gun and says "you decide"... unless you're suicidal, I bet I know which one you're going to pick.

There's been a lot of talk about this lately. In my hood they want to
arm more of our police with tasers. There seems to be a lot of backlash regarding this. I don't get it. If your doing something that requires a cop to restrain you, you deserve some kind of aggressive reaction that may warrant force. If that force justifies a weapon, I'd vote for a tazer over Clint Eastwood pointing a .44 magnum between my eyes, asking me if I feel lucky. Because if it's Sunday and I've had a few, I probably do feel lucky. I bet Rodney King wishes they had tasers back in the day.



In the new world, cops will be armed with a gun / taser combo unit and with the proper training will make the appropriate decision.

AND SO IT SHALL BE WRITTEN!
