Comment Re:But people getting tasered aren't usually tranq (Score 2, Interesting) 253

Ya seriously, I totally agree. This is not real world, it is junk science. Tasers have killed people. I think that is clear enough to say that they should be categorized as potentially lethal force. It doesn't matter if you are on meth, cocaine, have previous heart conditions or they just taze you 10 times.

Don't get me wrong. I don't like this practice. But I do not know what the technical issues are with doing this. Are there security concerns? How does it break stuff? Also, does anyone know if complaints have been filed with the CRTC or if this practice is contrary to CRTC rules?
