Taser stories worth passing along:

In Canada, The RCMP is shocked (shocked I tell ya!) that Tasers can be lethal. Of course, the illusion of nonlethality continues to lead to what can diplomatically be described as misuse - they're often used on people who are physically and mentally quite vulnerable, such as recently against a mentally challenged 14 year old girl. I've noticed that in my own little corner of the planet, the Guymon PD has become a bit Taser-happy lately - no deaths so far, though I suspect that is more a matter of luck.
