Law Enforcement Tasers Have Been Causing Tons Of Controversy

There has been much controversy about law enforcement tasers over the last few years and I don't see this controversy abating in the near future. There are an awful lot of people who are pushing to get law enforcement tasers used on a more regular basis. These people claim that my suing law enforcement tasers many less people will have to be killed by law enforcement men and women each year. And not only that but they also claim that law enforcement tasers will protect the police officers themselves better than the weapons that they are currently using.

I don't really know which side of the argument is the better one but I do know that these law enforcement tasers are killing people on a regular basis. But I have yet to see some hard statistics about how many are wounded seriously by guns and nightsticks. How different are these number? That is what I want to know. If they are different and the law enforcement tasers are keeping people from being hurt worse then I am all for law enforcement tasers being used on a regular basis.

If the law enforcement tasers kill less people than other methods I don't understand why people have a problem with them. Yes some people die, but not to sound callous, but if the same number of people or more are dying from guns each year then what is the problem?

Law enforcement officers are supposed to be about saving people and if they need law enforcement tasers to save them more than they need guns to kill them, give them the tasers I say. law enforcement tasers can do a lot for us all and we need to be willing to give them a try.

Law enforcement tasers work by shooting wires at the person attacking the officers. These wires when they connect to the perpetrator give this person a jolt of electricity. Many law enforcement tasers can be set to different levels and none of these law enforcement tasers are supposed to be strong enough to kill. The law enforcement tasers are supposed to only incapacitate people. The trouble comes in when those being shot with law enforcement tasers are under the influence of drugs. This seems to cause an adverse reaction that can sometimes cause death.
