3. Tasering and pepper spraying and rubber bullets and their like have gone up
According to Rachel, these non-lethal weapons are used more widely because they're non-lethal 'to protect people', but she also points out that if non-lethal weapons are actually being used in cases where lethal ones would be used then why did they pepper spray people like the 84 year old woman in Seattle? Would they have used a gun on her if they had no alternative?

She made a great point. And she had many more examples. Rachel is nothing if not thorough.
