I'm just presenting you with information... you have to make a decision on what you will do with it. If you have any reliable information contrary to what I have said, please post it. I am always looking to gain information on the taser and other less lethal devices. I'm all ears.
People are killed by electric shock all the time. But it is not the same as a taser. Taser puts out a maximum of 50,000 volts with less then .002 amps which is about 100 watts. On the other hand, a standard wall outlet outputs about 120 volts at a max of 15 amps which is 1800 watts ... so a simple wall outlet is 18 times more powerful then a taser could ever be. But when you consider that the taser only runs 1200 volts to the person max at .002 amps ... that is 2.4 watts or 750 times less power then a standard household electrical outlet. Facts are facts.
sorry for the typos ... I posted that from my phone
jimagator, with all due respect, you are wrong. please cite any study showing the negative effects of a taser on a human heart. there was one that made pig heart flutter, but only when the pig was anesthesized and the probes were placed directly ON the heart itself. Even then, it did not kill the pig.
I have a degree in human physiology and have participated in several TASER involved studies...so take my advice for what you will. In the most recent study hybrid involved with participants ran 1 mile on a treadmill then were subjected to 15 record from am X26 taser. Their heart pumped nope efficiently then before being tased.
Also, the taser is capable me 50,000 volts but the most on/through a person's body is 1200 volts. the 50,000 comes into play when there is not a good connection thu's causing a "short."
Excited Delirium...he would have dies without the TASER...BTW, TASER has NEVER been the cause of a death, ever. The one and single time it was ruled the cause of death by a medical examiner (in the 50 states), Taser sued and won in court to have it changed.
Exicted Delirium causes your body temp to rise so high it effects the persons mental abilities and they act crazy, break stuff, and shed clothes trying to cool down. Once your body reaches that point, there is VERY, VERY little hope of saving you.
sounds like classic excited delirium...Taser is all but harmless in and of itself; it has NEVER been the cause of death of anyone...ever.
