It's possible a very few people have died as a reult of being subdued with a Taser. Tasers can also be fatal for users:
You've actually got to be quite close to someone before it (a Taser) can work," [Chief Commissioner Simon Overland ] told the Melbourne Press Club on Tuesday. "If you've got a homicidal maniac with an axe running at you and you're relying on this thing and it doesn't work, you're dead."Sometimes it's best to shoot to kill. Who would envy a police officer having to make -- sometimes in a split second -- such a decision?
