The Los Angeles Police Department have been using Taser for many ears. Law enforcement is generally trained in the use of Stun guns and other forms of non deadly force. However the use of stun guns can be deadly. And their reticent use can be an effective tool in law enforcement crime prevention. However, police officer use Tasers and Stun Guns in instances there their use is not warranted. Stun Guns can have a negative impact
The use of these electrical devices is dangerous in that they can cause seizures, cardiac arrest and sudden death. Although using a Taser as an alternative to a deadly weapon is sensible in some cases, the negative health side effects of people who are susceptible to this electrical shock are very dangerous.
