tasered in the UK

UK Home Office statistics have demonstrated that in 2015 black Britons were three times more likely to experience a police officer drawing or using a taser against them than white Britons. But we also know that crime rates are higher in the black community in the UK, with black people over three times as likely to be arrested as white people . Are you more likely to be tasered in the UK if you are black because of implicit policing biases?
