Police Torture, Taser Edition
Within the past week a 20 year old young man died while being tased. The police used the taser first to break up a fight. They used to use talking, batons, and handcuffs, but no more.
According to Infowars where they have been tracking the use of Tasers by authorities, a use which seems to be dramatically increasing three hundred (yes 300) people have died from tasers in the US during the past year. Police use Tasers instead of batons or handcuffs. They often seem to think it fun. Three hundred (yes 300) people have died from tasers in the US during the past year. Tasers are being used in schools on children as young as 6. How is this not torture by cop?
This is clearly another offshoot of the out-of-control anything-goes cowboy administration who believes that anything goes and authority is all. And it has to stop. I know this has been posted at infowars and by Digby, but I'm going to reproduce it because you must see it. It will make your blood run cold. You must see that 1984 is an understatement.
We have to outlaw these things and rehabilitate the police. The torture must stop.
