To be precise, the primary issue isn't actually 'taser safety'.
Law enforcement use of guns and bullets is about 50% lethal. But provided that guns and bullets are used only when appropriate, then there's not much of a moral issue surrounding their use (in general).
The primary issue with tasers are the extremist claims about taser safety (with respect to risk of death, caused or contributed) made by Taser International and their minions. In their marketing, both explicit and implicit, they have clearly and repeatedly denied the inherent risk of death.
This lie is the root of most of the mindless evil, because it supports and encourages an attitude that permits the overuse, ...that forgives the misuse, ...and that too-often ignores the abuse of tasers.
If they had marketed these devices in a manner that acknowledged and highlighted the risks (including the risk of death), as opposed to denying these risks, then it would have put them into a good moral and legal position.
But they didn't take that approach. And that leaves them in an awkward legal position. [LINK]
The conclusion that tasers are perfectly capable of, almost randomly, causing or contributing to death is firm. [LINK]
The only ones denying this obvious fact are either ill-informed or dishonest. The ill-informed folks tend to clam-up when corrected. And the others have resorted to the same sort of debating techniques as used by the Flat Earth Society.
At this point the debate is finished.
It's now an exposè.
