Tasers- Anchor Intro Script

[Anchor:STEVE]
***STEVE**
THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO BE NON-LETHAL BUT, WITH 90 DEATHS LINKED TO TASERS, THE USE OF THESE STUN GUNS IS BEING HOTLY DEBATED.
THE CAUSE OF DEATH CAN BE DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE IN MANY TASER CASES.
AND NOW THE RELATED QUESTION OF HOW BEST TO USE TASERS HAS LED THE JACKSONVILLE SHERIFF’S OFFICE TO TEMPORARILY SHELVE THE WEAPONS.
WUFT’S HARRISON HOVE HAS THIS REPORT.

Tasers- Package Script

[TAKE SOT
NAME: TASER NOISE
DURATION:0’04”]
JACKSONVILLE SHERIFF JOHN RUTHERFORD TOOK CENTER STAGE IN THIS DEMONSTRATION OF TASERS, BUT NOW HE’S SUSPENDING THEIR USE.
HE STILL SAYS THE POSITIVES OUTWEIGH THE NEGATIVES, BUT CONCEDES OFFICERS MAY NEED MORE TRAINING ON WHEN TO USE THEM…AND WHEN NOT TO.
John Rutherford, Jacksonville Sheriff:  “I am temporarily suspending all use of tasers until our officers have been fully trained to be aware of the signs of medical and physical conditions that might lead to harmful stress reactions.”
WHILE THE JACKSONVILLE SHERIFF’S OFFICE IS PUTTING AWAY ITS TASERS, THE ALACHUA COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE AND THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA POLICE DEPARTMENT ARE CONTINUING THEIR USE.
THE GAINESVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT HAS BEEN STUDYING TASERS, BUT WON’T USE THEM UNTIL SOME QUESTIONS ARE ANSWERED.
Keith Kameg, Gainesville Police Spokesman:  “For many people they are fantastic weapons and they very well might be, but at the same time we have to look at a number of different parameters and do we want them.  We have to look at are they safe?  Are they safe, safe to everyone all the time?”
Harrison Hove, WUFT News: “Kameg says there are so many question marks surrounding tasers that he can’t even project a time frame for a decision.  Until then, G-P-D will stick to the batons and pepper spray that the officers have carried for years”.
MEANWHILE SOME OTHER AGENCIES WILL TAKE THEIR CHANCES WITH THE TASERS RATHER THAN TAKE ANY CHANCES WITH THEIR OFFICERS’ SAFETY.

Tasers- Anchor Tag Script

[Anchor:STEVE]
***STEVE***
TASERS ARE DESIGNED  TO HELP OFFICERS AVOID USING THEIR GUNS, BUT IT DOESN’T ALWAYS WORK THAT WAY.
LEVY COUNTY DEPUTIES USED A TASER ON A MAN LAST WEEK, BUT THAT JOLT AND TWO SQUIRTS OF MACE FAILED TO SUBDUE HIM.
OFFICIALS SAY THE MAN PULLED FREE TO GET A WEAPON FROM HIS PICKUP TRUCK BEFORE DEPUTIES FATALLY SHOT HIM.
