TASER® or not to TASER® ? You decide


Sometimes the confluence of stories amazes. And these stories all showed up on one website I visit. I gots me the shivers.

Folks, TASERS® are not innocent tools for law enforcement. They're fucking lethal weapons.

Who could have imagined the use of tasers would gain so much media attention? First, in Gainesville, Fla., then in St. Louis and Vancouver. Now, it appears everyone is going to need a "Don't taze me, bro!"™ t-shirt simply for the message it conveys to members of law enforcement.

A couple things.

1. You or I can own one.

2. How does someone determine a person has heart problems, autism, a pacemaker before Tasering them?

Tasers should be outlawed in my mind.
