Regina City Police Missing Out On All The Fun With Taser Ban!

" ... we’re supportive of having our members equipped with as many options that are deemed to be safe and appropriate in the use of force continuum to safely secure suspects when we’re confronted with situations.”
Regina Police Service Chief Troy Hagen

"OTTAWA — RCMP policy has acknowledged that taser stun guns can kill — especially “acutely agitated” suspects — and will now restrict their use to cases involving threats to officers or public safety.
Globe & Mail

Police in Saskatchewan do not have access to tasers since the Provincial Police Commission banned them after a flurry of deaths that the weapon has been connected to across the nation.

In a case of bad timing, Regina's Police Chief called for the weapon to be re-introduced to his force (calling it 'safe and appropriate') on the same day that the RCMP acknowledged that tasers kill!
