    What do people think about the aston villa footballer being shot with a taser? Its shocking, I read the amnesty posts daily but its actually happening in this country too.

    We hear of far too many people dying after being shot with a taser.

    I think there are other cases before this in the UK too.

    If there is any risk to people at all from using tasers, then we need to ban their use while investigations are carried out in to their safety.

    I heard they were investigating some cases where some people had died from the use of tasers.

    Good. It's very troubling that tasers seem to be used so easily, on the understanding they are safe, yet do kill people far too frequently.

    I think the mental health issue needs to be looked at too. Why if the footballer was not armed should they be able to use a taser it doesn't make sense.
