Taser use on a mentally ill patron in Prescott Arizona

In the NewsLance MurrayComment

Prescott police used a Taser recently to subdue a reportedly unruly restaurant patron. He was not arrested.  I think the use of a taser on this mentally ill person instead of a firearm might have saved his life.  What do you think? Some comments on the article say: Let the police use a Taser on them. Mental illness shouldn't end with a tragedy. The police should receive proper training in dealing with a person who is suffering from mental problems.

Behind my PD 100 percent. Thank you for keeping us safe and being there.

I'd rather be Tased than shot any day.
