It may be that Tasers have been widely distributed without sufficient evaluation and training. Maybe we can blame it on Bernard Kerik. Your post from a few years ago suggested that there was something suspicious going on.

How did Bernard Kerik get that $6.2 million in Taser options?

I think the big problem is not so much with the tool as it is with the users. There are certain police officers who join the force because they think they're going to get more respect. Doesn't happen. I remember one guy who used to show his gun to every pretty girl he ran into. I've run into a number of officers who were, IMO, ticking time bombs. How they get hired, I don't know. Here's one recent example: Trooper's Taser use pops up on YouTube - Deseret Morning News
