More Tasers Being Expensive

These cases create quite a monetary range, but either way, Joe Taxpayer, you're footing the bill:

A $2 million dollar award
A $10,000 settlement
A $200,000 settlement (PostBlog: Thanks to ED for reminding me of this one.)

There will always be more of these suits too.

And if taser fanboys feel comforted because a city's insurance sometimes covers the costs, how long do they think it will be before we see stiff increases in premiums for cities that arm their cops with tasers?
