A Cincinnati law firm representing one of four Taser victims in the past four years in Hamilton County is out with a new report it hopes will prompt police agencies to change the way they use the weapon.
Cincinnati's police chief reports the department's new Taser policy should be released in a couple of weeks.
But James Craig said there's no discussion about of not using them.
“You discontinue use of the Taser, what’s the alternative?” Craig said. “We don’t want officers hurt, they need to overcome resistance of an aggressive suspect, so that means side handle batons or straight sticks and again they create and cause more injury to suspects.”
