The Australian distributor of the device, George Hateley, says police in one Canadian province are following the advice. He says it is based on the findings of a single researcher who drilled into a pig's heart to test the Taser's effect on the animal. "That's going way beyond what you need to, and certainly pigs are different to humans," he said. "There have been about 2 million people who have been exposed to Taser - probably a million in training - and no-one's been affected." [LINK]
One could be forgiven for being tempted to call Mr. Hateley "a bald-faced liar", but I will try to resist that temptation. But his reported statement is outrageous. To claim that "...no-one's been affected..." is such an outrageous and bald-face false statement that there's only one possible conclusion...
Australians should take note of this approach by the distributor of tasers. If he is willing to make such outrageously false statements, then can you trust anything he says?
At least the new taser targeting guidelines have made the news Down Under.
