...After receiving an email that X26 and M26 Tasers more than 5 years old with certain serial numbers are past the recommended "deployment lifecycle"... Police officials said their review found that the Tasers were used unsuccessfully 23 percent of the time they were used by Warren officers... [LINK]Did they mention "deployment lifespan" when they sold them to you? How long did you think that a cheaply-made plastic gun was going to last? Stun Gun salesmen... Have they got a deal for you...

In Grimolfson's case, "a few minutes passed, not seconds, from the time of last Taser use to time of unconsciousness; therefore, the Taser use is not a relevant factor," the judge wrote.This claim can probably be traced back to "Dr." (not an MD last time I checked) and Taser International insider Mark Kroll. Kroll has been wrong multiple times on the subject of taser safety. His infamous "Cardiac Safety" ping-pong paper webpage was silently withdrawn from the Taser International website. Kroll consistently denied that tasers could cause death, now it's an established fact that tasers can and do cause and contribute to death. The Judge's statement is not supportable except by reference to "expert" speculation by those that have been wrong many times before. Many taser associated deaths have followed the pattern of: tasered, difficulty breathing, lack of response, and death several minutes after the taser hit. The likely mechanism is arythmia, but it's not my place to make uninformed speculation.
