It is common knowledge that the use of police Tasers can cause cardiac arrest and death. In Israel Hernandez-Llach’s case deadly force was not required.
It is unconscionable to allow police to use this potentially deadly weapon with the excuse that the risk of death is low. Police need to be retrained in nonlethal self-defense methods, such as pepper spray. Abolish police use of Tasers.
