Despite deaths, officials call TASER effective tool

LAS VEGAS, Nev. — It was supposed to be a fun-filled weekend for Sgt. Mark England, his last before heading off on his second deployment to Iraq.

But England, 38, who got into a dispute with airport security personnel, ended up on the floor of the McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas last March, jolted with a police Taser at least three times and battered with a club, leaving fractured ribs and a head injury that have kept him from returning to war.
