The ABC reports that the AFP’s Special Response and Security team is being given taser stun guns.
Civil Liberties Australia is, again, doing a disservice to the name of Civil Liberties by objecting to the move.
I could see some (not much) merit to their position if they were talking about normal police patrols where misuse in the general public could be a concern.
But if the black pyjama brigade are involved it really is an alternative to shooting. I think most of us would rather take our chances with the stun gun.
