Tasers are a form of torture and are a risk to human life:

People susceptible to this outcome are sometimes healthy and unaware of their susceptibility.

The United Nations Committee Against Torture (UNCAT), an agency charged with overseeing the application of the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, arrived at the conclusion on November 23, 2007, that the use of the electric pulse Taser gun constitutes a “form of torture” and “can even provoke death.” The UN has declared: “TASER electronic stun guns are a form of torture that can kill.
