Leave Tasers to others

Why on earth would the GVPD want Taser guns? To go after the cow-tippers we read about every day in the police blotter? For god’s sake, the highlight of their day seems to be where to properly place the little apparatus that they park on the side of the road that tells you how fast you’re going. It’s a scary thought that a 17-year-old could be smoking in public one day – a serious offense in these parts – and the next thing they know, there’s 50,000 volts running through him. If the GVPD actually fought crime I could understand. Leave the Tasers for the big boys.
