I'll admit that if Dalian Atkinson carved 3 people up, I am fine with their utilization of the taser.

America has changed you.

He was a f***ing unit Atkinson. If he was running through those coppers like he did the Man Utd defence that time, they'd have needed to Taser the f*** out of him just to slow him down.

Police officers now seem to go for the taser in situations like this more and more whereas in the past pepper spray would have been used.

Coppers have been charged with murder and assault respectively.

Was underrated in his day, I think he’d be a top striker today. Very tragic story all-round. Not read the actual verdict documents so cant really comment, other than I don’t think using tasers is a good thing and I’m surprised there hasn’t been more similar outcomes. RIP Dalian :(

I'm baffled by it. The Police are issued with tasers to protect themselves and members of the public. Unless it can be demonstrated that no-one was in any danger at all, I can't see how they can be accused of murder.

It gives a very strange message to the Police who are currently expected to use them.
People generalise too much.

The public don't know any of the details really, so it's impossible to draw any conclusions either way.
