Taser Loses Lawsuit
The maker of the Taser, a less lethal weapons that shocks and immobilizes its targets with electrodes, lost a $6.2 million product liability lawsuit in California on Friday. This is the first time that the company has lost any of the many product liability suits brought against it. The ACLU, including the Colorado branch, has expressed long standing concerns that Tasers are overused by police officers in situations where less dangerous force is appropriate.
