Alberta Solicitor General Fred Lindsay said he has complete confidence in how police officers use Tasers in Alberta. ... "I want to go on record as saying that, of all the thousands of times that a Taser has been used in this province, it has saved thousands of lives. The alternative in a lot of cases is lethal force." [LINK]
What he seems to be saying is that if the police in Alberta didn't have tasers, then "thousands" of people in Alberta (!!!) would have died, because in a lot of cases "the alternative is lethal force".
In other words, he is claiming that without tasers the police in Alberta would have been forced to go on a rampage of daily death and "thousands" would have died.
What a crock of sh-t. Utter nonsense. Complete crap.
I can only hope that people reading that sort of nonsense will see it for what it is.
