Chicago mayor defends TASER expansion

Daley says, "When a bullet goes through your head, that's pretty permanent"


Chicago Sun-Times

CHICAGO — TASERs have caused problems, but they do "less harm" than real bullets, Mayor Daley said Thursday, defending the Chicago Police Department's decision to dramatically expand the use of "stun guns."

Daley said the decision to more than double the use of TASERs -- and place one in every squad car -- was designed to minimize injury and reduce liability caused by police shootings.
