Editorial: TASER power comes with responsibility E-mail

TASER

February 2, 2010
The Dominion-Post
New Zealand

Dramatically speaking, the police account of a lunchtime confrontation with a violent, P-addled motorist in Waitemata last year leaves something to be desired: "I presented the Taser at the offender and laser-painted him, explaining that he would have 50,000 volts passed through him if he did not comply," the report on the incident reads.

Either the unidentified author speaks to violent suspects in the manner of a science teacher explaining the theory of relativity, or he has chosen to spare his audience the actual language used. With his matter-of-fact delivery, the author also fails to convey the drama of the situation. Trouble began when a man threatened officers with a wheel brace, continued with a chase in which one police car was side-swiped, another was rammed from behind and a third was reversed into, and concluded only when the offender was shot with a 50,000-volt stun gun.

But as an illustration of the benefits of equipping police with stun guns, there could be no better example. Not only has the risk to police and public been minimised, so has risk to the offender - he has been subdued without lasting harm.

Continental Airlines upgrades with Harris Radios OpenSky Technology E-mail

Harris

Houston, TX and Boston, MA, February 1, 2010 -Continental Airlines, the world's fifth-largest airline, has successfully upgraded its radio communication system at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston with OpenSky® technology from Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company.

The IP-based (Internet Protocol) digital OpenSky system - with Harris P5300 portable and M5300 mobile digital radios - provides Continental Airlines enhanced system monitoring capabilities, improved over-the-air, talk-group management and increased system capacity in one of the airline's busiest and largest travel hubs.

"When Hurricane Ike tore through Houston in 2008, the resulting floods hampered our communication system. While we were able to get the network back up and running quickly, we recognized that we needed an advanced digital network based on a reliable IP backbone to avoid interruptions like this in the future," said Corey Hoffman, manager of airport communications, Continental Airlines. "OpenSky was the logical choice for the new system. By pairing the network with P5300 and M5300 radios, we got an end-to-end digital solution that was both easy-to-use and robust. We also got the system implemented and users transitioned in about 45 days - far faster than we anticipated - thanks to the hard work of Harris and its local network solution provider, Dailey-Wells."
