It's time that "non lethal" terminology be removed from every tool or weapon that police or public employ to hurt or harm with intent. There is no such thing as non lethal and the police are the first in line to call a broom handle or boat a weapon if it hurts or kills someone.

A blank bullet is considered non lethal but we all know blanks do kill people and we know low voltage is lethal to mind and body in every circumstance. The electrical industry codes goes to great lengths in a home to prevent even the most minute of current in home wiring and specail circuit breakers are required to prevent the micro amp volt or current to break a circuit.

So the police employ 100,000+ volts that induces complete body failure and they call it non lethal. Inducing body failure by any means is lethal and these tasers are anything but safe. Non police use of tasers recognizes the lethal potential and it should also apply to police use of this toxic weapon.

Taser need to go, stop using them which they do kill people. I agreed above "blank bullet" would be more appropriate which I believe it does hurt but doesn't have to be directly to stomack or heart areas.
