Physical force

Allowing Taser use by police is a step in the direction of physical force by police officers.

However, one also needs to consider the risk to officers of being knifed or clubbed.

Perhaps one should look at the injuries suffered by officers in Grand Cayman and take that into account when considering the issuance of tasers. A few jolts from a taser will stop a drug crazed PCP user in his tracks.
