Once Again, Texaas Leads the Way

Police use of Tasers restricted: "In the wake of a research group's recommendations on how police should use force here, [San Antonio] Police Chief William McManus has enacted two major changes to the Police Department's policy on the use of Tasers.

Officers now are prohibited from using the weapons against anyone “known to be under the influence of drugs,” and no more than one officer at a time should use a Taser against a person, according to the new policy.

The policy does not limit the number of times an officer can shock someone, although it requires that police stop using the weapon when someone is in custody."

Great thinking, Captain. It's those maniacs on angel dust who need tasing the most.
