It's become perfectly clear to any rational thinker that tasers can cause death.
If you're not convinced, then please Google the taser's Curious Temporal Asymmetry [LINK]
Certainly tasers don't cause death all the time, but that's not an excuse. Drunk drivers often make it home without killing anyone; in fact many of them probably do so "most" of the time. But the ugly tragedies that do occasionally occur are more than sufficient justification for all the measures taken to prevent same.
Tasers that "think they're safe" are very similar to drunk drivers. They're potentially dangerous and should be taken off the streets, at least until they sober up.
Another ugly parallel is the serial denier nature of Taser International's continuing protestations of innocence no matter what evidence is laid before them: United Nations, Amnesty International, RCMP, Braidwood Inquiry, many (independent) researchers, common sense, simple logic, devastating argument. Their habit of cross-arguing is suspiciously self-serving.
Thankfully (mostly because it's so annoying), they're starting to run about of wiggle room. Their response to Braidwood's conclusions was the equivalent of a baby tossing the toys out of the playpen. And that was at least slightly entertaining.
Taser International claims that Braidwood chose "politics over science", when (if they'd read the report) they'd see that Braidwood followed the more-trustworthy science. And he also severely upbraided the political masters for their complete abdication of their supervisory role.
Taser International also failed to show any of the respect to Judge Braidwood that he had so graciously displayed to them, even while he politely rejected their farsical arguments.
