SF Chief REALLY Wants Tasers!
From the Chronicle:
“The San Francisco Police Commission heard a litany of expert testimony Wednesday to support the police chief’s proposal that the department’s officers be equipped with electronic stun guns.
Chief George Gascón has pushed for Tasers, stun guns that disrupt a target’s muscle control, and ordered a study of officer-involved shootings shortly after coming on the job in late July. That study, released earlier this year, concluded that one-third of 15 officer-involved shootings over a five-year period might have been avoided had officers had the devices.”
