The guy who died during the incident that caused the thread, apparently, was covered in blood and threatening to kill family members /deranged. I'd ask members on here to ask themselves, without the benefit of hindsight, what they would have done? And in a split second.Thousands. You can bet your life on that (no pun intended). If they weren't being tazered they'd be being shot.
In fact I'd say a high %age of tazer-involved deaths in the States are where the tazer deployment is ineffective and the suspect is then shot.
I remember watching a video of a guy out of his mind on steroids being tazed repeatedly just pulling the barbs out and continuing to walk around threatening the officers trying to arrest him
