United States, 2015

Do you blame the technology or the person wielding it? With damaging reports of taser-related deaths at the hands of police officers, this conundrum spurs a carefully constructed argument that tasers are in fact lethal, discrediting claims by Taser International that stun guns save lives.

  • MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Killing Them Safely

    "This is the American dream," says the Vice President of Strategic Communications at Taser, Steve Tuttle". "We watched Star Wars and Star Treks" adds the founder. And then they sue Canada for raising questions about the safety of their weapons. This is Neoliberalism in full effect. Berardini effectively show how Taser created a "killer" product (literally) on flimsy, doctored, manipulated science. Terrifying.
