ECD use by NY state police increases

From '06 to '10 in the mid-Hudson Valley the number of incidents involving a less-lethal device tripled

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. — The use of stun guns by police is soaring in the mid-Hudson Valley, with the number of incidents tripling from 2006 to 2010, according to a Poughkeepsie Journal computer analysis of 467 reports from 19 police departments.

The device shoots a painful electrical jolt through barbed darts — attached to the gun by copper wires — or when held to a person's skin. The first method incapacitates; the second is for "pain-compliance."
