Why use a Taser when you can blast a 40 cal hole in the criminals chest ? One might ask.......lets hope the Los Angeles County Sheriff Civilian Oversight Commission's children dont get too high and get out of line. I personally feel that Tasers (although they may not be perfect) are a Great Attempt to control someone that is Mentally ill or on a Death Wish (aka suicide by cop). But why tie up the Courts..."Bust a Cap, and Call it Done" may be the new mantra on the Force. I bet Bullet Manufacturers are probably "against" Tasers.
