Yee haw! That'll learn 'em.
What I really love about this settlement is that the county self-insures for the first $1M, and the other $900k comes from their insurance company. That's just about perfect. Share the pain in a way that should capture the attention of all concerned.
A news report: [LINK]
The county claims to have already tightened-up Taser Use Policy and cut their use by "64%".
If they honestly believe that a mere 64% reduction is sufficient to avoid overuse and misuse of tasers, then they're "Moron County". They'll pay out again sooner or later; mark my words.
The correct reduction ratio is more like 95%.
