This is my taser quote of the week:
Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle, "(Tasers) are effective 50 or 60 percent of the time." [LINK]
Nothing like a bit of uncertainty and randomness to make the day more interesting.
Does any other device in common use by the police get away with having such a poor track record? Imagine 50-60% applied to other police hardware. With 'friends' like this, who needs enemies?
By the way, the subject in this incident was shot with a gun. Right in the torso. He'll be fine.
