Summary "Tasers have been highly controversial less-than-lethal (usually) weapons since law enforcement first began to embrace them less than a decade ago. This analysis and reassessment of the device concluded that, when used properly, the Taser has saved untold lives and reduced the frequency of serious injuries suffered by both law enforcement personnel and the general public. However when employed improperly, the weapon can prove to be as lethal as a service revolver."
