Flagpole, January 8, 2014


At least 618 people have died after being tasered by American police from 2001 to Oct. 13, 2013. After years of research we have established a website which catalogues these fatalities.

We have examined virtually every news report we can find about taser incidents, most of which are not fatal, but many of which, perhaps even a majority, are frightening abuses of authority and exercises of violent power.
