The Braidwood Inquiry report is a pretty damning document for Taser International. The inquiry began after Polish Immigrant Robert Dzienkanski died on October 14, 2007, at the age of 40, after being Tasered five times by four RCMP officers in British Columbia. The report concluded, as a finding of fact, that "conducted-energy weapons do have the capacity to cause serious injury or death" and that the risk increases with multiple uses, specifically when aimed at the chest near the heart. Taser International appealed the inquiry. They were not successful.
