    What is the issue with the Norwalk police and the over use of the Taser? Last year the Norwalk police department was rated the worst in the state for use of the Taser. The chief instead of taking corrective action made excuses. It seems that they are going to be the worst in the state again this year at this rate. This is what happens when you hire cowards as cops.
