This is exactly the sort of attitude that you would expect based on the so-called training. If this is what happens within the police department, magine what happens on the street! It's a tip-of-the-iceberg sign of much deeper and more-widespread very serious problems...
The first step to reducing the evil of tasers would be to examine the so-called training and make sure that the attitude being passed along is aligned with common sense (it's not a harmless toy, it is a weapon that is potentially deadly).
