Aren't Tasers Supposed To Be Non-lethal?

Third person in the region to die from Tasering in the last couple of months:

"MOUNT JOY, Pa. - Authorities in central Pennsylvania say an autopsy is planned Monday on the body of a man who died over the weekend after being subdued by police using a stun gun.

State police say officers in Mount Joy were called to a home shortly before 4 a.m. Saturday by a man who said he was being harassed. Police say 61-year-old Robert Neill 'became combative and aggressive,' and officers used stun guns after repeated attempts to calm him failed and he 'moved aggressively' toward an officer."
