United Nations Torture Panel Singles Out Taser

Comments Off

The UN Committee Against Torture has bluntly singled out the use of taser stun guns as a form of torture. It also disagreed with Taser International by stating that several reliable studies have shown that taser shock can lead to death. The UN Committee’s strong stance has been the latest in a growing public debate about the safety and proper use of tasers by police. Amnesty International has called for more training yet stopped far short of describing the pain inflicted by the taser shot as torture.
