NEPA: Wilkes-Barre police now armed with TASERS!

Why is it so difficult to find the TASER DEATH COUNT? I could only find it as of 12/16/2008, you'd think you could put up a TASER DEATH COUNT widget on your blog by now, like those Iraqi death count toll widgets. But don't worry: YOUR tax dollars will pay for it when families sue the police for millions when someone gets killed or disabled by a TASER, it doesn't come out of THEIR pockets. They'll just raise your taxes to pay for it. Just wait until the first person dies from being TASED, and it will happen. Will it be YOU? Or your kid? I don't go for the argument: "It's better than the police shooting you". That's the only other option? That's a bullshit argument, it's not even an argument at all. Maybe the police are more likely to TASE you than to use their communication skills. "Well, I have this TASER here, that's easier than reasoning with this person." And as you will see in the montage TASER video below, the police absolutely abuse using the TASER according to their own videos from their police cars!

WILKES-BARRE - Hoping to lessen injuries to police officers and suspects, city police officers have begun carrying Tasers. (but what about injuries to those TAZED???)

Taser zaps California man’s short-term memory: claim

The Tarrant County medical examiner ruled Thursday that the death of a mentally ill man in April who was shocked twice by a Taser stun gun wielded by a Fort Worth (TEXAS AGAIN!) police officer was a homicide.

They should read this like they read the names of the 9/11 victims:

DEATH TOLL 2009: REMEMBERING THE VICTIMS: 1. 1/9/2009: Derrick Jones, 17: Martinsville, Virginia. 2. 1/11/2009: Rudolfo Lepe, 31: Bakersfield, California. 3. 1/22/2009: Roger Redden, 52: Soddy Daisy, Tennessee. (read more...)

Wikipedia: the U.N. are concerned that use of Tasers may amount to torture, and Amnesty International has reported cases where they believe that their use amounted to "cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment which is absolutely prohibited under international law"

TASER Montage: Here is a microcosm of America's foreign policy:

I guess this debunks the GOP "folklore" that "even Canadians come over here for health care". It's the opposite! Americans who don't have health care go to Canada! Including Sarah Palin! I told you this was rightwing "folklore"! I have consistently said things like why aren't these people who come here from Canada interviewed anywhere? And is Canada paying for them to come here? If they are, Canada still has a great health care system. If Canada is NOT paying for them to come here, they must be rich to pay in cash! Or the simple answer that explains it all: IT'S RIGHTWING "FOLKLORE" THAT "EVEN CANADIANS COME HERE FOR HEALTH CARE"!!!

PALIN: We used to hustle over the border for health care we received in Canada. And I think now, isn’t that ironic?
