TORONTO, Canada — The case of a mentally disabled man allegedly zapped with a Taser when Toronto police burst into his bedroom highlights the need for an ongoing national debate on the use of the stun guns, a prominent lawyer said Tuesday.

The family of George Lochner is suing the police for more than $9 million, claiming the man was beaten and zapped with a Taser in August 2006 when officers entered the family home looking for his brother, Silvano, who was wanted for threatening a neighbour.
