The US media has been sleeping as Taser International issued new taser Targeting Guidelines.
Finally, the story has broken.
Gothamist (October 18, 2009) - "Taser International Inc. has issued a warning about taser chest-shots, suggesting that law enforcement officers aim their tasers at perpetrators' backs, arms, or abdomens. In response to the warning, the NYPD brass has formally ordered officers not to shoot tasers at suspects' chests. ...
...A source also tells the News that Taser International did not actually notify the NYPD about the warning." [LINK]
Really? Taser International didn't bother to explicitly inform them? Wow.
Fair Use / Fair Dealing claimed
