    Ray Roberts, the LEO fired for refusing to take a taser traning shock, was unfortunate that the judge seems not to be aware of how many training injuries exist and how irresponsible it would be to undergo the shock against doctor’s advice. An early case is Samuel Powers- TI won because he had previous spinal problems. I wish I could send that judge my list of 23 injured LEOs.

    Also see the new Police Executive Research Forum guidelines on taser use, which say,
    11. Agencies should be aware that exposure to ECW application during training could result in injury to personnel and is not recommended. Any agency that does include ECW application as part of training should not make it mandatory for certification, and should ensure that safety protocols are rigorously followed.

    Come on dude you know that was part of the deal. No biggie…carry OC spray, you get sprayed, carry a taser, you get tazed. You would be surprised how much more respect you have for your intermediate weapons systems once you get the privilege of the experience!
