Calif. chief presses city to buy TASERs

San Francisco is one of the few major cities that doesn't arm officers with stun guns

San Francisco Chronicle

SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco Police Chief George Gascón challenged the city's Police Commission on Wednesday to approve TASERs, saying it was inexcusable and "negligent" to deny officers a less-lethal means of dealing with dangerous suspects.

San Francisco is one of the few major U.S. cities that does not arm its officers with the stun guns.
