you have not completely convinced me that tasers are harmless. The burden of proof would matter if I was trying to convince a neutral party such as in a formal debate. I remember what I heard on t.v. and just because I can not find the clip does not mean that I'm wrong. I have already admitted that I made a mistake earlier when I said I may be wrong. I didn't say that I am wrong because I am not certain that I am. There is a difference between being unable to prove your position and being wrong.

It's possible in SPECIFIC INSTANCES, but there has to be a huge skill level deficient on the side of the opponent.
I'm afraid that this training may give police officers a false sense of security. It is probably better for a cop to respond to a deadly threat with deadly force. If a crazy/drugged up/imbred/retarded criminal doesn't want shot, all he has to do is not act like he wants to kill a cop.
I'm sure you will have to agree, it's much simpler this way.
