Security officers are increasingly using stun guns to maintain order at sporting events, but are they taking crowd control too far?

Keenan Copp's curator insight, September 20, 2013 11:07 AM

This article could tie into both facility crowd control and security, it covers some situations were a taser was used on fans at past sporting events. There seems to be a bit of mixed feelings on the necessity of a stun gun for event security, and it also covers a case in which a fan suied over the use of the stun gun. Due to the fan suing, the idea of stun guns in a facilit could also be something that would come up when discussing risk management.

This article shows a way that can control crowds and possibly deter future disruptions 

Mike Horne's curator insight, September 22, 2013 10:28 PM

I added this one simply because I enjoy tasers and seeing people being tased.  It's a fairly safe way to control someone and de-escalate a bad situation without hurting the people around them.  As with anything, there is a liability issue that the facility staff will have to deal with if used incorrectly.
