News: Vermont has become the first state in the nation to pen a detailed policy dictating how and when police officers may use Tasers. The policy comes in the wake of a man who died shortly after he was Tased.
Comment: Leave it to a tree-hugging state to pass this kind of BS law. Police are already thoroughly trained in Taser use. In fact, the whole reason the weapon exists is to prevent unnecessary lethal force.
The only people who die after being hit by a Taser are drug addicts who are so whacked out of their minds they don’t realize they’re putting themselves and officers in danger.
I hope Vermont will be the first and only region to enact this foolish measure. At least now all the crooks know where to find safe haven… in the Green Mountain State!
