Tasers are stun guns used by the police to subdue suspects.

Policeman aiming a Taser Gun.
The device shoots an electrode, attached by a wire to a battery, which delivers a powerful electric shock. The taser is used to subdue suspects who resist arrest, as well as for personal self-defense.

It is favored by people who want to subdue a suspect or assailant without killing him, but is opposed by some people and groups (like Amnesty International). In rare cases, being shot with a taser has resulted in death. [1]

YouTube has some videos of young men resisting arrest, getting tasered, and then claiming the police used excessive force or abused their authority.
