Scottsdale-based Taser International recently demonstrated a new product for police that can shock three people at a time.
Now, we agree that Taser has benefited law enforcement and even some crime suspects who might have otherwise ended up shot or injured in a scuffle with cops.
But other crime suspects seem to coincidentally die soon after being shot with a Taser.
Will the new X3 produce double or triple deaths? Time will tell.
