20 Of 30 Shootings By RCMP Did NOT Meet Standard For Deadly Force

"Of the 30 RCMP shootings nationwide in 2006 (the most recent year for which data was available), only 10 met the RCMP's test for using lethal force."
Vancouver Sun

I'm willing to bet that the number is even lower for tasers, even though tasers are only supposed to be a non-lethal alternative to the gun.

Yeah it would be good to see some stats that look at the same ... what number of taser incidents did NOT meet the RCMP standard for deployment.
