Shocking plan: Montpelier police want Tasers

And in the smallest state capital in the US - Montpelier, Vermont: population 8,400 - city council will be asked by the police chief to give a nod to the purchase of five tasers! (I live in a town with a population of 40,000 and we only have two!) "They [city council] had some reservations, and I told them I would come back to them and explain to them in a more in-depth manner what the use of Tasers would be and why," the chief said.

Perhaps he can sway city council with the doorknobs and Chicago arguments (see below). Stay awake, city council - your citizens' lives may very well depend on it.
