Police to Halt Taser Use
Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino has ordered police across the country to stop using tasers.
His announcement follows public outrage after a video was released showing officers repeatedly giving electric shocks to a father-of-six from Samaria (Shomron) who was not resisting arrest.
At the same time, Danino has established a committee to set standards for taser use in the future.
