"Morrow said the situation on Thursday was a classic case of where the taser was deployed appropriately." [BROKEN LINK]
I guess he means "classic" in the sense of a 'classic' car.
From a more innocent time.
Not seen very often.
Keep in mind that the annual death toll from lethal police gun play in Canada is extremely low; barely into double digits per year (if even that some years). My credulity is just a bit stretched by the implicit claim that "...an intoxicated man armed with a knife..." represented one of the top ten (or so) examples of the grievous threats to police in Canada for the year.
Reasonable people would grant them their 'save' of a drunk, potential cop-killer.
But, we're being generous.
UPDATE: Far too generous it turns out. See subsequent post: [LINK].
