The Colombian National Police going to use Taser?
A Taser, sometimes spelled Tazer, is an electroshock weapon sold by Taser International. It uses electrical current to disrupt voluntary control of muscles causing “neuromuscular incapacitation”. Someone struck by a Taser experiences stimulation of his or her sensory nerves and motor nerves, resulting in strong involuntary muscle contractions. Tasers do not rely only on pain compliance, except when used in Drive Stun mode, and are thus preferred by some law enforcement over non-Taser stun guns and other electronic control weapons.
Tasers were introduced as non-lethal weapons to be used by Colombian National Police to subdue fleeing, belligerent, or potentially dangerous people, who would have otherwise been subjected to more lethal weapons such as a firearms. The police surveys overseas show that the device has saved 75,000 lives, there has been some controversy where Tasers have been implicated in instances of serious injury or death. but injuries will always be lower than using firearms.
