The blog Tasered While Black has been tracking the issue of black folks being tased for some time now. We are blogging today against police and other security entities across America, Canada and around the world involved in Extra-Judicial Electrocution by Tasers.
The U.N. says: Tasers Are A Form Of Torture Tasers a form of torture, says UN The Daily TelegraphU.N. Calls Tasers Torture : NPR
Today we want to give you and other members of the general public, awareness on the issue of taser abuse by police. It's important that the general public understand the 'use of force continuum' used by law enforcement officials, and how it is abused by many in the law enforcement community. (See the use-of-force-continuum provided by Villager at Electronic Village) Although there is a Justice Department Review of TASER-related Deaths the on-the-spot pre-trial electrocutions continue.
