Tasering deaths unacceptable

John Kinnear’s

…. letter to the editor in this week’s Pass Herald titled Tasering deaths unacceptable is one that I totally agree with, as those who have been following my one man crusade on my Land of the Taser, Home of the Slave blog can attest to.

… How many years will it be and how many deaths will occur before we recognize what we have done?

With bodies piling up because of the state sponsored police use of Tasers and a bureacracy that seems to move slower than a sloth one wonders if we will ever have an answer to John’s question above.

Some time back I stated that it will probably require the killing by Tasering of the son of a prominent political or establishment type before action is taken. I guess the recent killing of a son of a councillor in Brooks is still not high enough.

Why must it go to the extreme before common sense and man’s humanity to man kicks in? This weapon is barbaric and the people using them on us are no more than animals. If threatened by one of these animals with a Taser, people have every right to kill before being killed. Is this what we want the world to come to? Kill or be killed! What kind of society are the ‘conservatives’ creating here?

 

Man is a credulous animal, and must believe something; in the absence of good grounds for belief, he will be satisfied with bad ones.

    The Conservatives hardly have anything to do with this, it is the police forces that push for tasers. Twisting it to make it sound like it is part of a Conservative agenda is stupid. Don’t forget that the RCMP is a corporation that runs on revenue gathered from whatever source it can find and restraint is always more popular than causing a fatality. Perhaps you should go and teach these law enforcement people a thing or two on how to subdue a criminal and solve this whole mess once and for all.

    The government of the day rules the roast, therefore, the ‘conservatives’ have to shoulder the blame and responsibility. It is in their power to change the rules of the game as well as the rules of engagement.

    It’s done the old fashion way like before Tasers were introduced. Read up on it, the old fashioned way has been around for thousands of years, and governments/states have managed quite well to suppress the masses and keep them in line without the need for ‘shock’ & kill treatment of this kind.

    Tasers were brought into play under Liberal leadership.

  4. John Prince says:

    Now that we know what they do, I guess it will take a Liberal government to ban them. As we all know, based on track records, that Conservatives are ‘regressive’, whereas Liberals are ‘progressive’, in their thinking and policies.

    RCMP Taser use draws Amnesty’s ireThe above is the title to a story about Amnesty International pointing the finger (for the second year in a row) at Canada and the RCMP for its human rights abuses, for its continued use of Tasers against its own people.
