    I thought that was the point of tasering or wounding a fugitive, that police were allowed to injure a dangerous fugitive to prevent escape.  Of course, I'm going by movies and mysteries, and the news regularly has stories of actual police injuring and even killing people who are only suspects or are just doing something the police don't like, for instance demonstrating.  Our police and courts seem to follow the law, in many cases, only when they agree with it or they are being watched, and maybe not then.  At the local level, nationally, and internationally, those in power twist the laws to fit their wishes.
