A Taser is a stun gun.
It’s a device that fires a burst of electricity into a person’s chest to stop their heart.
But it’s not a toy, and it’s illegal to use in Canada.
That means you need a licence to use it, but it’s also not a good idea to take one home.
So why use it?
It can make you feel uncomfortable, especially when it’s used by someone you don’t know, and can be extremely dangerous, said Amanda Dickson, who teaches criminal justice at the University of Ottawa.
“It’s kind of a tool that we have as a society to deal with these issues, and I think it’s important that we, as a police service, know how to use that tool,” she said.
“Tasers are one of the most controversial and problematic devices out there.
It can be quite controversial, it can be a very scary device.”
But they’re also a very useful tool for police officers, said Const.
They can be used to break up a violent fight.
They’re very, very useful for people who are dealing with a violent offender, or people who have been assaulted, he said.
And it’s a tool used by many police officers in other countries.
“I would just say it’s very helpful in situations where you need to have a controlled environment where you can have a little bit of situational awareness and you’re not really having to deal in the same way,” MacGregar said.
MacGregan said he uses Tasers more often than he used to, but he also uses pepper spray and stun guns, and that he’s only ever had to use one.
“In my experience, I’ve never been in situations that I would say that it would have been necessary for me to use a Taser or pepper spray or rubber bullets, but I don’t feel comfortable with them either,” he said, adding that it’s just safer to not have to worry about what they’re doing.
“And the other thing is that we know the Taser can be incredibly dangerous, and so if we’re in a situation where we have to use them in order to prevent an altercation, and they’re potentially lethal, that’s a concern for us as well.”
While the Ontario Police Service is investigating the use of pepper spray in incidents, there’s a long history of incidents involving Tasers, including one incident in 2010 where a Tasers was accidentally discharged in a residential neighbourhood in London, Ont.
In that case, officers responded to a call of a man who was throwing a glass of water over the fence.
The man, who was identified as 26-year-old Matthew Thomas, was taken into custody after the incident, and charged with mischief, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and dangerous weapon.
In 2015, Toronto police received complaints of two men in a domestic violence relationship using Tasers against each other.
In the investigation, Taser was found to have caused a minor injury to one of them, but the other man was charged with assaulting a police officer.
The Ontario Police Association says that Tasers were used to restrain a man during a domestic dispute in 2009 in Mississauga, Ont., and in 2014 a Tase was used to subdue a man with a bat in Ottawa.
A Tase in Ottawa was used on a man on a knife-edge in 2015.
And a Tasing in 2014 was used against a man in Winnipeg, according to the Ontario Provincial Police.
Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair has said that the use Tasers in policing is justified.
“As you can imagine, we are not going to sit back and watch these things happen in our communities,” he told reporters in June.
“But the reality is that when we have incidents like we’ve had with Tasers that do happen in police departments, we want to make sure that those people are brought to justice.”
Police say the use and misuse of Tasers is not limited to the United States.
In 2011, two people were charged in Ottawa after police say Tasers accidentally discharged a Tazer while searching for an armed robber who had stolen a box cutter from a nearby residence.
Police say a Tamer, who lives in the neighbourhood, was carrying the box cutter and had the Tasers on when he accidentally discharged the weapon.
A woman who lived in the area at the time was charged.
In 2016, two men were charged with attempted murder after police allege they were Tasered while trying to arrest a man.
The pair, who lived at the same address, had Tasers installed in their clothing.
Police have said that Taser’s use in police training has been a cause for concern.
“We have found in our training that they have some of the lowest rates of use in training,” said MacGrego.
“They’re not used to dealing with people who live in situations with them and they don’t have any training for dealing with them. “That’s a
