According to the "logic" being applied by some medical examiners, the older you are, the more frail you are, the more pre-existing medical conditions you have - the LESS likely it is that a taser deployment (or several taser deployments) would ever be found to be a cause of your death.
So if you're an elderly person (for example), inevitably with multiple pre-existing conditions, it is essentially impossible that your taser "associated" death could ever be attributed to the taser. No matter what the circumstances, the medical examiner will inevitably find your several pre-existing medical conditions and the taser will thus (?) be absolved.
Same thing if you're obese (even slightly). Or just about ANYTHING... Even caffeine has been mentioned for gosh sakes.
Your corpse, still trailing taser wires from the two taser darts embedded in your lifeless chest, would thus (?) become yet another example of how people are constantly dropping dead (?), and with a formal conclusion that the taser had nothing to do with it (no matter how tight the timing).
So the 90% of us that are not perfect physical specimens, we can all sleep soundly (?) knowing that we are "logically" immune to the potentially-lethal effects of tasers.
Welcome to the insane and illogical world that supports the inexplicable assumption that "tasers-R-safe".
