BART Reissues Tasers
From the Tribune:
“The BART Police Department will start redistributing Tasers to its force this week, nearly two months after the use of stun guns was halted so that officers could be retrained and updated on new department policies.
“Beginning this week and hopefully completed by next Monday or Tuesday, we will redeploy Tasers to all police zones,” police Cmdr. Dan Hartwig said Monday night, adding that officers will be able to choose whether or not to use them.”
Well, I guess this confirms the idea that the removal of tasers was a red herring. Gotta love a good “policy review!”
