NEWSPAPER REPORTS STUN GUN USE INVOLVED IN 120 DEATHS SINCE 1999

May 31, 2005 | www.Newsinferno.com

Using a number of sources, The Arizona Republic has compiled a list of 120 cases in the United States and Canada since 1999 where a death followed the use of a Taser stun gun.

The sources used included autopsy reports, computer searches, police reports, media accounts, and Taser’s own records. To date, the research has shown that many of the deaths were "a cause, a contributing factor or could not be ruled out in someone’s death."

In several other cases, coroners and other officials reported that the use of the stun gun was not a factor in the death. In any event, the report lends strong support to the claim by many critics of the Taser that the so-called non-lethal weapon is far more dangerous than its manufacturer would have the public believe.
