    Indiana University Health cardiologist Dr. Douglas Zipes analyzed the cases of eight healthy men, ages 16 to 48, who were tasered between 2006 and 2009 and lost consciousness. All but one of the men died.

    they just like loaded guns ....deadly and these folks who created them should be destroyed
    these devices do change the heart rate and rhythm that can send a person in shock that lead
    to heart failure or cardiac arrest ......this thing should be outlaw'd or used only and only if in dangered.

    The problem is I don't think we can trust the judgment of most of them to decide "when they're in danger" you know. I've always had a problem with the power police/C.O.'s have, at the end of the day that official is a mere mortal....just a man subject to the same emotions/capable of the same actions as any other man...just doesn't seem right that often they're put in complete control of situations and people as if their judgment is always without flaw.
