Don't Tase Me - NEWS
As the joke that was "Don't Tase Me Bro" a couple of years a go this story was passed along to me by one of our students and I thought I would share. The 9th circuit has determined that officers may be held liable for injuries to a person suffered after being tasered. There is a dividing line between immediate threat and passive resistance but for those details I refer you to the article and the opinion of the court.
