France. Police brutality. Tasers. Immigration.

You'd be a fool to pretend that society would be safer or better off without police having tasers as an intermediate option between nothing and a very deadly gun.

Yes, people will die every year after being shot by tasers. If you're in a country illegally and chasing cops with a hammer and actually managing to injure four of them, then I won't be crying about you dying from a heart attack or whatever after getting tasered.

Yes, police brutality is a problem sometimes, and quite often in certain parts of the world. Corruption, low pay and social status, all that. But the vast majority of police in the Western World are just doing a job.

Let them do that job with as many tools as possible.
