+ - Court rules taser can be used when threat present->

Submitted by buttersnout
buttersnout writes: The U.S. 9th district court of appeals has ruled that police may only use Tasers when a perpetrator poses an immediate threat or be liable for any injury caused. Tasers may no longer be used to on people merely protesting or even passively resisting arrest.
