ABSTRACT
The article argues that Taser should be banned in the U.S. because of the dangers and risks associated with its use. Taser is a non-lethal weapon developed for policemen to incapacitate a suspect. Those who oppose the use of Taser claim that the electric shock from such weapon can be considered as a form of torture. A discussion on whether Taser can be considered a law enforcement tool or a civil rights violation is presented.
