Hi Folks,

I’m hoping to persuade the Palo Alto City Council to re-examine the need for Tasers in Palo Alto. I’m requesting that the Taser issue .... be one of the council’s priority issues in 2020.

Since the introduction of Tasers in Palo Alto... a growing body of evidence suggests that Tasers are much more dangerous then originally thought.

In September of 2014.... I was invited to speak as part of a panel on whether Berkeley’s police should be allowed to purchase an use Tasers. As part of my presentation.... I discussed my own experience with the same issue in Palo Alto back in 2007.

My presentation was a brief 13 minutes or so... but covered many of the key issues the PA City Council ... and the community at large.... should take into consideration when
deciding whether Taser are no longer needed in Palo Alto (see the link to my presentation below).

Sincerely,

Aram James
