mediablitz: when one of them discharged the non-lethal compliance deviceAn awesomely Orwellian term.
Sin_City_Superhero: ALL three-year-olds should be tased...daily. ALL of them.
Whodat: "The child was accidentally shot while the officer was aiming for a running parole violator..."One barb accidental, no shock. No biggie.\yes I would say the same thing if it were my kid.
Litterbox: JohnCarter: Don't these have an "effective" range of about 10'? That is some pretty crappy shooting by Johnnie Law Dog.No, smartguy. Different cartridges have different length capabilities. Our department carries 21 ft. cartridges. You can get 15, 25 and I believe, 30 ft. as well. Theres a whole lot of people in this thread that know zero about Tasers and how they function. I shot a guy with a Taser at about 6 ft and only one probe hit him. The other probe hit his loose clothing. Thankfully he was touching the wire and completed the circuit. When the probes are fired, they come out of the cartridge at a slight "V" angle and of course that angle increases as the distance from the Taser increases.
