Your daily Taser

We don't issue frontline police with firearms with a thousand bullets, we don't issue them with capsicum spray the size of fire extinguishers. Every other weapon they have is limited ... but this one is out of proportion. --Australian criminologist Julian Bondy

Are the RCMP and the police in Queensland, Australia, swapping best practices?

"We fired the Taser three times. Whoops, make that 28."

The man targeted--no surprise there--died. An inquiry has been ordered.
