How long and how many deaths will it take before the Powers That Be take these horrible devices out of  use?

Here in the US we have a lot of police and security folk carrying tasers. We are the home of, "Don't Tase Me, Bro" and where every month or so you hear about someone else dying after tasing.

It seems to me there's a better way to stop someone in their tracks than electric shocks that stop the heart.
