Senior Constable Craig Myles yesterday told an inquest that even after using the electronic stun device repeatedly on Antonio Galeano, the 39-year-old was still difficult to control. The officer said he later questioned the effectiveness of the Taser. "(I told other officers) the Taser is not the be-all and end-all," Constable Myles told the Townsville court. "It didn't seem to work as good as they say it does in training."
Taser International has repeatedly claimed that the taser is "...safe and effective." Of course, they say a lot of things that turn out to be false and misleading.
The taser failed to effectively control Mr. Galeano.
The taser was used repeatedly and Mr. Galeano, who had lived 39 years up to that point, was dead within minutes.
Safe and effective MY ASS.
