Tasers are without a doubt capable of causing either alone or in combination with other human factors a person to die. Even if there is no proof that Taser alone can cause a death, and I’m not assuming that, the fact people die after being Tased should be alarming to anyone in a civilized society. How then can they be so casually used? Are ordinary citizens tolerating this simply because it’s a clean death?  In other words there is no blood to clean up so society is putting the deaths out of mind.

Clearly in many of these instances the use of a Taser is not law enforcement, but the dishing out of punishment by law enforcement. Punishment of course is the Constitutional power of the Courts, not law enforcement or the legislative branch. At what point have we become as repressive as the Communist society?
