Stop using the taser and start shooting them. At least you can remove a bullet.

Another Taser death in Ontario this morning.

CBC reports here that an unidentified man died today after being tasered by the OPP this morning.
The incident happened mid-morning in Norfolk County, about 130 km southwest of Toronto.

Police said they were responding "to a report of an unwanted male person causing a disturbance," and said the man was "combative.
The man collapsed at the OPP station and was taken to the hospital where he died.

There is no argument for the continued use of tasers. If proponents claim that 150 + deaths in North America is a small percentage, then they are tasering too many people. 

It is 150 people that didn't have to die.

This is utterly ridiculous.
