Tasers used 58 times in mental health settings

Tasers used 58 times in mental health settings Police drew, aimed or fired Tasers in mental health hospitals, wards, and clinics 58 times in the first six months of figures being recorded.

The government says a Taser should be a last resort - but campaigners say they should never be used in such settings. The data, from 43 UK area forces, covers the six months to September 2017, when Tasers were fired 22 times. BBC News
