Steve Tuttle, a Taser International VP, was trying to defend his company from critics in the comment forum of a Salon.com article, “Let’s talk about tasers” written by guest blogger Digby. This was a reader’s response:

That way, cops would be hesitant to use the unit except in the most dire circumstances. As the units are totally safe when used properly, the cops would not mind at all.
