As part of its carefully-planned, almost-imperceptible sneaky legal shuffle away from liability [LINK], Taser has just subtly shifted the wording of its safety claims again.
"...the taser device is not... ...unreasonably dangerous..." [LINK]
So now the taser is 'not unreasonably dangerous'.
In other words, it is dangerous - just not unreasonably so.
That's a vast change from the taser being perfectly incapable of affecting the heart in any manner whatsoever as Taser and Kroll have repeatedly claimed.
Can we all now agree that there actually is a moderate risk of DEATH from internal risk factors (such as cardiac effects) when the X26 darts actually land on the victim's chest?
Such an acknowledgment would certainly help to explain all those incidents where people have died immediately after being tasered.
I have guesstimate the odds of DEATH as being within sight of the low end of the single digit range - once all the possible external safety factors and denominator washing factors are eliminated (leaving only the inherent safety margin alone, naked, scared, and certainly not 15-to-1).
The risk certainly ain't millions-to-one as Taser and their fan-boys have tried to claim. They're obviously off by several orders of magnitude.
It's like watching a bad child shifting sideways - heels left, toes left, heels left, toes left, heels left, toes left.
Hey, where do you think you're going?
