Stanford Criminal Justice Center Executive Director Kara Dansky said the criminal justice community has been aware of risks associated with tasers for some time, especially if they are used during, say, a struggle with a suspect. "There is some evidence that use of tasers can cause cardiac arrest under certain circumstances and that some of those circumstances involve pointing them directly at the chest." [LINK]
So Taser International and their horrible little minions are now backed into a very small corner. They're the only humanoids on this planet that still "believe" (not really) that tasers cannot cause death via inherent internal risk factors such as, for example, cardiac effects.
And what's this about "a struggle" ?
When a person is tasered, they're supposed to be incapacitated. Remember "NMI"?
So they're not supposed to be in a position where they could be "struggling". They may be struggling to friggen breathe. They may be struggling to remain alive. But to claim that a person under the full force of an effective taser hit is simultaneously "struggling" in a voluntary manner appears to specious nonsense.
