    Unfortunately, I think the strategy is to bankrupt the company by making it fight lawsuits, and eventually they may get a favorable jury. Tort reform is needed.

    The taser has probably been the most effective crime prevention tool I have ever seen or heard of. The street knows that thing before they ever see it. I had a guy yesterday that pointed to it and said I heard those things hurt. I told 'em you are right, they make ya miserable. Stopped the stupidity right then. That is what I am looking for. Less stupidity. That is what taser gives.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    I agree. I loved it but the department thought it would just be another Lawsuit. You know better to pay for officers medical bills than get sued by a perp.

    Liability Paranoia sickens me - It ignores the big picture.

    I think a national legal defense organization should be set up to fight lawsuits like that among member PD's - If all departments paid into it, the organization would be able to afford to fight lawsuits rather than settle them - That's the only way to discourage future lawsuits, unless tort laws change (not likely, since most lawmakers are lawyers themselves).
