LAPD To Buy 6800 Taser Stun Guns
Now, I don't know if that's the going price for these babies -- it works out to about $1030 per gun -- but giving officers a (usually) NON-lethal alternative to their pistols is a good idea. This could pay for itself with the first wrongful death lawsuit avoided. More importantly than the dollars saved, of course, is the lives this could save.
City Council still has to approve the deal.
Anyway, it sure seems like a better use of tax dollars than restoring an old mural . . . .
