Sorry, but I don't consider someone coming at me with a knife or ball bat "innocent people". Only time I deploy a Taser or OC is on someone armed with a sharp object or impact weapon... or if they're a hell of a lot bigger than me.
I hope you are joking?
I match deadly force for deadly force. First thing in a situation like that gets pointed at them is a G22. If
there is a stand off or another officer then there will be a taser pointed at them.
