Taser Phaser

So RCMP officers need to tone it down then...

Under the amended policy, an officer is only permitted to use a stun gun if he or she is in physical danger or the public is in danger.

It means Mounties can no longer shock people who are simply were "actively resistant" to officers' orders, the commissioner said.

Where's "the line" though? I don't think this permission will really change anything.

Dog the Bounty Hunter uses pepper spray quite effectively I might add.

Update: The Edmonton Police Service isn't changing their position on Tasers.
