They should target one in five

The Ombudsman has criticised NSW Police for excessive use of the taser. I suppose they could have shot them instead.

If crims know they will get tasered they won’t be so stroppy. Instead of one in seven, Police should go for one in five to increase the chances of a crim getting tased:

POLICE misuse Tasers one in every seven times the controversial weapon is deployed, a highly critical report by the NSW Ombudsman has found.

The report says Tasers should not be used on people fleeing police or in handcuffs, unless in exceptional circumstances. It recommends that the practice of ”drive stun” – where a Taser is held against a person without firing projectiles, to cause pain without immobilisation – never be used.
