Should Tasers Be in Arsenal of a Small Town Police Dept? – Feb 19 & 23

This week we’re talking about stun guns with Wellfleet Police Chief Ron Fissette. You might be surprised at his responses to questions many of you asked when I first posted our intention to take a hard look at the issue. Why, unlike most police chiefs, did he invite a community dialog instead of hiding them in his budget? Why does he think police need stun guns and how can he justify small town cops carrying heavy weaponry? What kinds of violent crimes are we seeing in our quaint rural communities and what kinds of situations has he found himself in? I learned a lot. I think you might, too.
