Tasers were used 3070 times between 2007 and 2009... [WA Police]
Over 3000 taser deployments in an ill-defined period of about two years?!?!!!
I've stated it before and I'll state it again here and now.
Tasers are being used at a rate that is OBVIOUSLY about ONE HUNDRED TIMES the historical rate of use of lethal force.
In other words, before tasers and all their carry-along evil were introduced, the WA Police were not in the habit of shooting to death about a thousand people per year.
Anyone, and I mean ANYONE, that dares to use the argument that "tasers replace guns", or "tasers are safer than guns", or "tasers save lives", or anything remotely similar is either ill-informed to the point of being dangerous, or is a bald-faced liar.
Tasers are OBVIOUSLY being used in place of lower and safer and less-evil forms of "persuasion."
