America’s rising, out-of-control crime wave is claiming a growing number of Postal Service workers as victims of robberies, beatings and even murder. It is time to fight back and arm at least some of them with tasers.
In bold and vicious ways, postal carriers are being attacked for the keys to blue mailboxes and for mail itself, which has large amounts of ATM cards, financial assets, and personal information that can be used for identity theft.
Tasers are tried-and-true defensive weapons that send out 50,000 volts of electricity to incapacitate, but seldom kill a perpetrator. As such, they will literally send shock waves toward those thinking of harming Postal Service workers and deter many crimes.
Lexington Institute’s Paul Steidler discusses this in an Op-Ed in InsideSources DC Journal here.
