Less lethal methods

Whatever happened to tasers?

It would appear to me that in almost all of these incidents involving police shootings, the officers would be better served by using a taser first with a gun being the last resort.

Policemen have every right to defend themselves and it’s their duty to stop a crime. But in the interest of accuracy, perhaps a less lethal method would be preferable and save everyone a lot of trouble.

This terrorism and vandalism is disgusting and counterproductive. It is so sad for the blacks who are good citizens.
