Taser International (written by Taser-minion Kroll):
Long Taser Applications Do Not Affect the Heart. Electricity does not build up in the body like poison. If an electrical current does not electrocute someone in 2–5 seconds, it will not electrocute the person with a longer application. Thus, longer applications have no materially different effect on the heart.
Real World Facts:
Acidosis DOES build up in the body like a poison. That's already been medically and legally established beyond a reasonable doubt. That fact that Taser International has not accepted this fact only serves to reveal their complete lack of concern for their 'ultimate clients'.
The more you are tasered, the more likely you are to die.
And the risk of death isn't measured in parts-per-millions either, more like low end of single digits.
To be perfectly fair, perhaps the taser is killing people through some other mechanism than simply directly affecting the heart. Perhaps the victims' nervous system is simply being fried by the high power taser.
What is clear, based on real world results, is that the taser is strangely associated with death.
