"Tasers offer police additional nonlethal options"
- by The Republican Newsroom [LINK]
Several points need to be made here:
1) Note that the misleading word "nonlethal" is back (as opposed to less-lethal).
2) Many cults use painful rites of passage as part of their brainwashing.
3) Note the continuing use of FAKE demos into the trainee's (cardiac safer) back.
The fact that essentially all taser training hits and demos are into the back (never the chest) is clear and compelling evidence that Taser International (who influences the training standards to the point of control) understands the risks of chest-side taser hits. They want to build up the number of deployments without taking the risk of killing some of their customers.
Face shields and personal cups would be perfectly acceptable, as would use of manually-applied alligator clips. Just put the current into the chest across the heart and let's see if Taser's confident claims of cardiac safety really hold water. If you really believe Taser's claims of cardiac safety, then there is no reason not to start clipping the taser wires across the chest so that the current vector passes through the area of the trainee's heart. It needs to become the standard training method - not just some small sample. Across the heart hits need to be S.O.P.
The current situation is clear and compelling evidence that Taser International understands the risk of the cardiac effects of taser hits to the chest.
If they disagree, then they only need to change their training standards as described above (chest, clips, across heart) and let it run for a year or so.
