SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. — Based on the opinion of the Spokane County Medical Examiner, Spokane's law enforcement leaders are instructing deputies and officers to limit the number of times a Taser is used on a person.
"I asked Dr. (Sally) Aiken if it (the use) should be stopped," said Spokane Police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick. "She said 'no, but using it more than two or three times is concerning.'
