Sworn Statement of George L. Kirkham, D. CRIM [.pdf LINK]
27. Based on these materials alone, Taser’s assertion that there are only two modes of taser use is false, and knowingly so.
28. In addition, and in light of the above, the statements of Taser’s experts Jeffrey D. Ho, M.D., and Mark Kroll, Ph.D., are also false.

The basic issue is that Taser et al have consistently claimed that there are only two modes of deployment. And they use this to back-up their safety claims. But there are at least two other modes... See Kirkham link above.
So is this the first time these two Taser fan-boys (Ho and Kroll) have been caught stretching the truth? No it isn't. Several examples documented on this blog - search their surnames.

90!! What is Taser going to do with the next 310+ taser-associated deaths since then? They're going to spend the rest of their natural life in court defending the safety of their product.
