    VA cops: 2 for 4 on Taser use so far this year

    The incident was the fourth time this year that Arlington police have deployed Tasers. . Two of those confrontations did not involve death or injury, Griffith said.

    Yep. Half of all people Tasered this year in Virginia have died.
    Not so non-lethal after all, eh?

    In addition, people are often injured severely as a result of being Tasered. For example, they'll smash their head/face into the pavement as they fall with full body weight, unable to cushion their fall with their arms and hands, etc.
