Electroshock Injustice: Fatal and Non-Fatal Taserings By Police

By Jr. Donald E. Wilkes and Lauren Farmer

Abstract

At least 618 people have died after being tasered by American police from 2001 to Oct. 13, 2013. After years of research we have established a website which catalogues these fatalities. We have examined virtually every news report we can find about taser incidents, most of which are not fatal, but many of which, perhaps even a majority, are frightening abuses of authority and exercises of violent power.
