    all too often, tasers kill.

    A true craftsman will meticulously construct the apparatus of his own demise.

    •  Yes, but they are not meant to kill. (2+ / 0-)

      And, in the world where the intent ("all it takes is the idea") is what counts, that's the bottom line.
      If Zimmerman, for example, is convicted of manslaughter, it will be because he failed to comply with the dispatcher's injunction not to engage. That demonstrated mal-intent, an attitude that was previously manifest and accounted for him having been fired.
