Life saved! Officer intended to use taser but pulled gun

There's now "evidence" that NOT using a taser actually saves lives:

NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- The Nicholasville Police Department says one of its officers intended to use his Taser to stop a fight between two men, but mistakenly pulled his pistol and shot one of them.
Yes, tasers make you trigger-happy. We know that many people (including the latest taser death Kevin Piskura) have died soon after having been tasered; so how's this fellow doing, after being shot with a lethal gun?
State police say Michael W. McCarty was taken to the University of Kentucky Hospital after being struck in the lower back by a bullet. Hospital officials say he's in fair condition.
A life saved by NOT using a taser; hallelujah.
