New More Powerful Tasers

My local KATU News reports about more powerful tasers available to the public. Insert local big city cop fear-mongering here.

Looks like the cops are nervous about people with tasers. However, the quote I find interesting is Multnomah County (Oregon) Sheriff's Deputy Paul McRedmond's:

If you point a Taser at an officer, a law enforcement officer, we may use deadly force upon you.

Why do you think this is? Beacuse incapacitating a police officer makes it impossible to perform his duty to protect the public. If your duty is to protect your family, I think you can do the math about what you should do in a similar circumstance.

I'm sure this will lead to discussion.
