The NYPD is trying to find out why a stun gun didn't stop a knife-wielding man before he was fatally shot by cops outside his Manhattan home. Investigators will look into how Emmanuel Paulino was able to laugh and pull out the electrified prongs and keep coming at cops with a knife. Officers finally fired nine bullets, killing Paulino...
Repeated reports of ineffective tasers, even in cases where the taser darts actually hit the subject, are yet to be fully explained.
One potential explanation might be that Taser International is managed by children (oh sorry...), has insufficient quality control processes, and only a fool would place his faith in such an unreliable weapon. But that's just one possible explanation.
If there are better explanations, please advise.
