    By definition, yes. Of course, milk is also potentially lethal. The real problem with tazers is that lazy (or worse) cops abuse them.

    This should not even be news, as there are a plethora of incidents that resulted in death...

    Cops aren't drawing their tasers when the criminals are drawing their guns, you know.

    Didn't they stop using the term 'nonlethal' and start calling it 'less-lethal'.

    IDK, if given the choice on which one I would want to be shot with, I think the choice is clear.

    I was wondering how many people had to be killed for them to classify it as potentially lethal.

    I know, it was just meant to be a little example of how "Liberalism" will always whine and complain about anything the Cops do but go dead silent when it comes to the "Scumsucking Gang Bangers and Other Rotten Criminal Murderers.

    A liberal will blame the Cop when when the Cop shoots a criminal but when a Criminal shoots a Cop that same liberal will blame "The Gun".

    :confused:

    But that's simply not true. Nobody on the left is cool with violent crime. They just want to understand and address root causes.

    I don't see a lot of liberals complaining about good shoots. It's the bad shoots that we have a problem with. Everybody should.
