Dennis McBride, PhD, is a President Emeritus and Fellow of the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies. Dr. McBride led a 2005 Institute study on non-lethal technology used by law enforcement. When the recent death of a Virginia man following police use of a Taser again focused attention on these technologies, Dr. McBride offered commentary to local media covering the story. Dr. McBride says when used properly by police, non-lethal stun guns are safe. But he raises concerns about thier use by the public. Click here to read more on radio station WAMU's website.
