Members of Macon’s City Council were surprised to find that not all police officers are equipped with a Taser, an electronic device that can incapacitate a suspect in lieu of using deadly force. The Public Safety Committee grilled Police Capt. Jimmy Barbee about the fatal shooting Dec. 21, 2012 of Sammie Davis Jr., by officer Clayton Sutton.
