TASER YO MOMMA!!

So there was a recent Letter To The Editor of the Denver Post pissing and moaning about the Denver cops being sued just because they killed a guy with their tasers. "Stop being such crybabies, sure they killed him so what? They obviously didn't intend to kill him because they used tasers instead of guns to do it!" So, a matter of degree in HOW lethal a Deadly Weapon is? Taser deaths have steadily climbed. There were two Colorado Springs robberies I can immediately recall using tasers, both carried the "charge" (little electric joke) of Armed Robbery WITH A DEADLY WEAPON. If it's good enough for the cops to call tasers a deadly weapon in one context, why not consider it likely to be a deadly weapon in others? Audie Murphy was shot a few times, by people carrying military grade firearms (cause they were in an Army) but didn't die from the wounds. 26289
