lol, yeah Loopy, the same cant be said for a normal firearm as you can be aiming anywhere, pull the trigger and still hit your intended target.
I'm not sure I'm understanding what you're saying?
Apparently there's some '15 foot rule' you're taught as an officer in training for these types of situations. I didn't say I agreed with him and that statement. He was suggesting it was dealt with correctly and I was saying it wasn't.
the 15 foot rule, which is actually 21 foot aka the tueller drill, is the distance at which someone could with a knife could run at and stab an officer before the officer could unholster his/her gun and get off a shot, estimated at between 1.7 and 2.6 seconds. this included the time to realize that "hey, some armed fucko is running at me with a knife".
Using a taser at this distance on a charging subject is considered a serious mistake as it will probably not incapacitate the suspect in time. even a gun will require an arterial or spinal hit to incapacitate a charging suspect in this range.
