[Updated 22 Feb 2009 - to clarify the point. Sorry for not making my sarcasm more clear.]
A woman missed her flight at Hong Kong International Airport. She goes a bit crazy and starts banging on things.
In comparison to the approach used at Vancouver airport when Mr. Dziekanski was killed, it appears that the nice folks at HKIA don't considered that a taser is a fundamental prerequisite to ending this sort of situation.
I find the contrast between this video and the Dziekanski incident to be striking and revealing. It's very much like the contrast in the two incidents mentioned at this previous post [LINK].
Both of these examples clearly indicate that the first weapon to reach for is not the taser, it's deescalation. Talk to them, calm them down. And you can even still arrest them later if you really feel the urge. Safer for all concerned.
