The Tasering issue is gaining national attention.
There are many people who are signing the petition to call for Congressional Hearings on Taser Torture in the United States. Here is an example of the debate going on, even on the petition drive:
Alan S. of Newport, RI says:
EVERYONE regardless of color, race, etc. is subject to being Tased. STOP with the black, latino, etc. I am a WHITE MAN, former police officer, and I was tased on my own property, shot in the neck and experienced this torture. Waterboarding, which I voluntarily agreed to do for writing an article is NOT TORTURE, being Tased is, and it is being done in our own backyards, our streets, our homes many times for NO REASON. It is the worst pain I have ever felt, I have no idea how these are allowed to be used on American Citizens, OF EVERY RACE AND COLOR. Read More HERE and sign the petition
