Less-lethal shotgun

Postby Henry Vilas » Mon Dec 31, 2018 12:19 pm

A 35-year-old woman is facing charges after she stabbed a man Sunday morning who didn't pay the full cost for sex, officials said.

The Monona Police Department said officers responded at 5:13 a.m. to the Kwik Trip on East Broadway for a report of a stabbing. The two people involved were still present.

According to the report, as officers arrived to the scene, the woman, Tanisha R. Fowler, exited the store. One officer pointed his Taser at her and a second officer pointed a less-lethal shotgun at her.


Less lethal than what, the Taser?

Man who came up short on prostitution payment stabbed, police say

I forgot what the ammunition was, but I remember hearing the term "beanbag rounds" in the past. Getting hit by something like that probably wouldn't be fatal, but would really be painful.

Experience precludes the use of "non-lethal".

Experience? Did you die or something?

No, it seems that the non-lethal is sometimes lethal. So they have to call it less-lethal.
