How Tasers should be treated by the police...
Sgt. - "Good evening officers. Some of you will be issued with Tasers tonight. Please be aware that the Taser is a very dangerous weapon. It can kill. The Taser should be used only as a last resort and treated with as much respect as your sidearm. In other words, if you're almost at the point where you have perfect justification to draw your gun, and if you have time, and if the situation is appropriate, then if you can use the Taser instead, then that might be a good decision. Keep in mind, you will have to formally justify your actions and sworn statements will be taken from you and all witnesses. Have a good night, and Hey, be safe out there."
