- Taser-associated death rate versus taser darts-on-chest or not.
- Taser-associated death rate per actual full deployment versus type of taser (M26 vs. X26).
I've seen a lot of taser deployment data, but I've not seen this type of data.
The fact that this sort of data clearly exists in the databases of those that we assume might tend to have pro-Taser leanings, and that we have never seen such data collated and published, indicates a possible reluctance to publish the results.
In fact, some of the databases seem to actually step-around these duh-obvious questions.
In the absence of such data, I'll assume the following:
- That darts-on-chest is significantly correlated with death.
- That the X26 taser is significantly more dangerous than the M26. And the M26 is vastly more dangerous than previous 'low power' tasers.
If you have complete and reliable data that indicates that my assumptions are not true, then publish. Send me the link. Half-assed studies by pro-Taser minions need not apply.
