Houston-Area PD Won't Use Tasers

After the recent death of a Fort Worth man caused by reckless police use of a "non-lethal" Taser weapon, Houston PD has wisely chosen not to use these unsafe technologies, for now, anyway, the Houston Chronicle reported last week. Good for them.

CORRECTION: Grits regrets such careless posting, but it's the tiny Oak Ridge North Police Department, NOT the Houston PD, that decided not to use Tasers. (It's their fault, really, the way the Houston Chronicle hid the information there in the lead like that!) I apologize for the error.
