The time for Tasers is now. Since SFPD officers have the fewest less lethal options available to us, compared to most agencies in our country, we may be forced into the use of lethal force. We do not want that. The Police Commission voted to approve Tasers in concept last Friday, which we applaud, but no concrete policy is in place.
Now Commissioner DeJesus is classifying officers as being lazy for using less lethal options such as Tasers. Her comments were offensive and completely lacked any foundation in fact.
On Monday I gave an interview to KTVU outlining the POA position on this matter. Watch the debate.
