"Shut up or I'll tase you!" is pain compliance pure and simple.
Be quiet or we will electro-torture you.
Why not use the glowing end of a lit cigarette to accomplish the exact same thing?
Nobody, but nobody, has ever offered a solution to The 'glowing cigarette' taser challenge.
Why no response? Because there are no legal, moral, and ethical differences between burning-cigarette torture and fancy-pants electro-torture. Nothing. Both are exactly the same in all respects.
According to a [Bermuda Police] spokesman ... Every time [the taser] is used tiny confetti-like identification numbers are deployed that can be recovered so as to identify the specific taser that was used. [ibid]
Not when it is used in Touch Torture (Drive Stun) mode. This non-dart mode is often used to make them shut up (inexplicably, causing them to scream out in pain exactly as if they were being electro-tortured... hmmm...).
Me thinks that the Bermuda Police Service might want to review their Taser Use Policies AND associated training to exclude taser deployments, ...threatened or actual..., so that they can't be accused of using tasers to torture people to make them shut up.
