I find the fear of law suits a poor reason for pulling the tasers. You can't leave your house in Las Vegas without risking a law suit. What next, the police won't stop cars on traffic violations for fear of law suits?
We can find many points to argue the pros and cons of tasers but fear of law suits? How about poor training and lack of qualified officers?

They must be gettin some cops that are more in shape what I understand is that the reason they were using tasers is so they didnt have to run after anyone since the force has so many outta shape officers. If there were not so many laws people would be breaking them. Pretty soon they will enforce a town wide curfew. People need to wake up and not be a "yesman" like this stunad overhere.

A friend of mine got over tased for way more time than he needed to be, actually, he was already on the ground and they still kept shocking him.

Tasers are a great tool for officers that is non lethal. Would you rather be tazed or shot with a gun? By the way did you know that they have cameras on them to protect officers from law suits that start recording from the time the safety is taken off and records the whole incident.

If the thugs that live in the Vegas/Mora area would behave there would be no reason to taser them. A lot of you conveniently forget how difficult and dangerous it can be for a Police Officer in the Las Vegas- Mora area.

I agree with Detention575
