One of the scariest things about the taser is its conditioning/programming effect on police officers. In their view, it is not a 'lethal' weapon, however, it is an 'awesome means of control'. Their predatory 'desire to capture their prey' just loves this weapon. They stand less of a chance of legal actions, or an IA investigation, verses using an actual firearm. And they, especially those that have just enough of a conscience not to blatantly take a life, get to 'draw, aim and fire' without much fear of repercussions, legally, mentally or emotionally. They just beg the suspect (which could be anyone at anytime), to flee, so they can play with their toy. The 'Go ahead, make my day' mentality.
Once the normalization and acceptance of LEs 'shooting without hesitation' via taser programing is completed on society, the taser will be removed and the 'gun' that will be left will be their 9mm. They will be programed to shoot without forethought, and we will have been programed to accept.
Just my 2 cents (less with inflation),
