Brooksville, FL -- The [taser] knocked [Justin Robert Miller] to his knees. When Miller tried to get up, the deputy [activated] the taser a second time, then a third time, and once more. When Miller tried to lunge at another deputy, Cari Grasso, Junker sprayed him with pepper spray, finally subduing him. [LINK]
So the five-second taser bursts are not actually being used provide an opportunity for the police to move in and hand-cuff the subject (as has been more-or-less promised on the tin). The five-second taser hits are simply being used, even in this dart deployment mode example, as a form of pain compliance - repeated until the moths get tired of banging into the light bulb (four times in the case).
Decision makers that may have been left with the impression that the purpose of the taser is to incapacitate the subject, with the subject neatly hand-cuffed at the end of the first deployment cycle (or maybe the second), may wish to consider if that is actually how tasers are being used.
Apparently not, judging by reports such as these.
And judging by the many examples of repetitive taserings (strangely correlated with taser-associated deaths, considering that there's supposedly zero connection [rolls-eyes]).
Is this how the taser training says to do it?
'Taser the subject until he stops moving.' [??]
(See previous post on the same subject: [LINK].)
Do you see any problems with this Moth + Light deployment model?
