The Guardian has published its detailed report into the uses and abuses on tasers by British police officers, most importantly the firing of taser shots into victims’ chests.

On average, 57% of all Taser discharges resulted in an individual being hit in the chest. There were however large differences between police forces – from 100% of three Taser uses by City of London police, to 17% of the 24 occasions that Suffolk police used the weapon.
