Taser Used in Carjacking

Here's a shocking example of what happens when ordinary citizens are allowed to carry tasers - and I'm sure we ain't seen nothin' yet. If Taser International has its way, we're all going to hell in a handbasket.

Omaha police have arrested a man accused of repeatedly using a taser on a woman in order to steal her car. The woman, who asked not to be identified, tells Channel 6 she knows the suspect. The victim called 9-1-1 late Thursday night from a gas station at 52nd and Northwest Radial Highway. She says she was giving the man a ride when he repeatedly shot her with a taser and handcuffed her in the back seat of her car. After driving several blocks, the suspect apparently let her out of the vehicle and she called police. Police tell us they did book someone into custody, but his name and specific charges have not yet been released. Police also confirmed the victim knows the suspect.

Though lets look at simple reality this criminal could have shot her with a Glock, and she would not have been alive to report the carjacking, let alone give a description allowing the criminal to be apprehended.

The choice to Taser or not to Taser is a very touchy subject and I do believe there are strong feelings on both sides of the fence.

In using force to control a subject a person will always be in question. Was too much force used? Was it really needed?

I feel for each person that has lost someone in this universe. However, far more people have died in other non-taser related ways that we should be concerned about as well.

Peace to you.
