FILE- In this Sept. 25, 2012, file photo, Cherry Hill Township Police Officer Patrick Higgins takes part in a stun gun training session at the Gloucester Township, N.J., Police Training Facility. After France banned police chokeholds, the government responded to growing officer discontent by announcing it would test stun guns for wider use, adding to the ranks of European law enforcement agencies that have recently adopted the weapons that many in the U.S. equate with excess police violence. The French government later backed away from a complete chokehold ban. (Chris LaChall/Camden Courier-Post via AP, File)
