TASER - It's Good For You

379+ DEAD AFTER TASER USE

What follows are the names (where known), dates and locations of all North Americans who have died after they were shocked with taser weapons by law enforcement officials.

As far as I know, this list does not exist anywhere else in the world.

For the most part, the list has been generated from media accounts, with the first 167 names documented by reporter Robert Anglen of the Arizona Republic newspaper.

Since late December 2005, Patti Gillman (owner of this website, TNT - Truth ... Not Tasers) and Cameron Ward have continued to record the names of those who have died after they were tasered.

For a list of Canadians who have been tasered to death, please see DEATHS IN CANADA on the right-hand side of this page.

  • Died while being tased. Fell unconscious after being tasered and died.
    Taser = 50,000 volts.

    Why the hell don't the users of these devises call it what it does?

    IT ELECTROCUTES. PERIOD.

    He was resisting and I did not want to clean up a mess if I shot him. So I electrocuted him instead!

  • okay try to follow me on this. sometimes when you fight with the police you die. the tazer is a less lethal device. its used to reduce injuries to suspects and officers. people have been dieing for years fighting with police. something like 98% of the deaths involved prior drug use. dont get stoned and fight the police

    Just when I thought I'd seen everything, an anti-taser movement...

  • Do what you're instructed to do for the officer's safety and the safety of others and you'll never "risk your life" by being tased as EVERY officer carrying a taser has been.

  • 379 Dead...? So, why then 379 as apposed to 380?

    • You guys don't get it.

      Tazer is abused!

      It is an ALTERNATIVE to a gun, yet it is used for completely different purposes.

      Guns are NOT used to SUBDUE people!
      Guns are used to kill people!

      Tazers must be used only when you intend to KILL a person.

    • I think you are the one who does not get it.

      Nice way to look at the issue, from only one side. You do not see anything that shows that tazers have in fact made it safer for police, and for the public as a whole since there use.

      Your argument that tazers should be banned is about as real as asking that police officers are not allowed to use any force at all if someone does not cooperate. Guess what, a small percentage of people die when they fight the police, some overexert themselves and More..

    • Re-read my comment above.
      I didn't sugest to ban the tazers.

      I am suggesting to change the usage policy.
      Tazers must not be used to subdue people because of the high risk of death.

      And the argument that people die resisting the police is plain wrong. The police must take measures to ensure that people don't die.

      It's wrong to kill a dimwit grandma in a wheelchair just because she fails to cooperate!

    • Tazers are used against people who do not comply with orders and who are a danger to themselves and to others.

      Name one police station that would condone tazing an old lady in a wheelchair? That comment is stupid.

      Fact is, there are already policies in place, and consequences if those policies are not followed.

    • Nice name MongoMax...

      What you say is true!.. What some of these bleeding heart libs seem to forget that the taser made it possible for the police the get compliance with out having to use the old choke hold with caused some suspects that refuse to comply to die. In addition, for the cops to have to get their hands on the suspect can cause injury to both party's.

      A little history about the choke hold.... before the taser, this was the primary means to take down and restrain a prisoner/su More..

  • Some of the bleeding heart libs piss me off. Fact of the matter is tasers are the umongst the best technologies to control a non-compliant suspect. When better technology arrives, this is it and it's better than the alternatives.

    Think libs. Think!

  • Sometimes cops are idiots they tase people for nothing. "The man spoke no english". Why dont they get a class action lawsuit going against taser makers? Put them out of business.

  • Would you cut off a hand because a thumb was infected?

    If an officer uses a force option outside of law or departmental policy, discipline that officer.

    There are mountains of proven, factual, scientific evidence that TASER does not, in and of it self cause death or traumatic injury.

    It's pure ignorance to suggest a weapons system be abandoned or restricted because of unsubstantiated ideas that it causes death.

    • until someone has a bad reaction to it and dies, then there will be an anti-tranquilizer movement.

      why dont people just not get into situations where they need to be tazered? its not like the cops dont know how it feels, they have to be tazered themselves in order to carry one.

  • LOL.. I tried to get the handle Mongo (as opposed to Mongo1) but it was already taken... funny, I've never seen "Mongo" post. Blazing Saddles is one of my favorite movies and Mongo is a fav charactor.

    Your right. Don't Resist! But it must be hard for some otherwise if it were easy, everyone would do it!
