this response is without knowing the facts of the suit filed , fact is its seem to be a trend among officers be it the training they recieve or the igrorance to the possible short/long term effects of this device yeah it may help with the apprehention of a suspect but at what cost studies have shown that it can cause hernias lower back problems brain dammage and contribute to death in some instances. moving on it alson amazes me thatinstead of prosecutors attampting to really look into a excessive force complaint they're to busy trying to figure out how to discredit/justiify the situation when im sure im sure not every complaint of excessive forse is not frivilous. Sowhat happens to the officer that does violate this law and then is justified for the violation ? some respect the fact that its not consistant with the law and refrain from the illegal behavior but others my feel its a gateway to even more violations and in turn taint the thougts of other officers
