New Jersey: Charles Dunn is grieving his 19-year-old son's fatal shooting in March, and he has plenty of questions for the Willingboro police officer who pulled the trigger. One thing he's clear about, however, is his belief that the officer should have had the option of using a Taser stun gun against his knife-wielding son. New Jersey is the only state where it is illegal for police to carry Tasers, the result of a 1989 law banning all stun weapons.

Tennessee: Police officer gets back pay, promotion in settlement.
