Taser International and their minion "Dr." Mark Kroll, an electrical engineer (not a medical doctor) that dabbles in medical matters, have repeatedly claimed that tasers can be used repeatedly without fear of serious medical consequences (such as, to choose one example, DEATH). Kroll's infamous "paper" (sic), that compared repeated taser hits to being hit with a ping pong ball, seems to have been yanked from the Taser International website. It was previously given prominent exposure under "Cardiac Safety" (sic).
Now the Chief of the Fort Worth police is explicitly suggesting that Taser International reprogram the taser so that a continuous trigger pull is limited to a ten seconds discharge cycle (instead of endless tasered-until-dead as it presently is designed). [LINK]
The liability issues swirling around Taser International are getting thick.
