Monday Taser Update

An autopsy is being performed today on a man in CT who died after being tased (or here).

The death of a sixteen-year-old following a tasing was caused by the taser (which is circular to anyone who's been paying attention).

Police in Australia admit to tasing a man 28 times before he died.

The AMA jumps into the taser fray and basically says nothing. They like tasers, but want police to have better usage guidelines and police accountability. I'd bet all the post-tasing-dead would have wanted those too.
