Tasers have Deterrent Effect

Apparently the reputation of tasers is becoming so widespread and is so formidable that many criminals (at least in Edmonton, Canada) stop fighting as soon as the laser sight hits them.

I'm not sure if the deterrent effect comes from the reports of police using the tasers to repeatedly shock people or whether it's the reports of people dying suddently after being shocked. Maybe it's a bit of both.
