This Space for Rent

Oh, yeah, democracy is on the march.

In a just world, Tasers would be illegal and any police officer using one on a non-violent demonstrator would be immediately tossed into prison, along with their civil superiors who implicitly or explicitly encouraged the idea of attacking someone with a deadly weapon just because they weren't subservient enough.

I counted four police offiers here and one demonstrator. But the Taser was such a nice way to encourage the others, wasn't it? This is not acceptable behavior in a democratic country.


What’s wrong with the Taser (as a weapon for law enforcement, that is, and not in this particular example of its use)?

They’re too easy to use, and they promise the world with minimal effects. So at the drop of a dime out they come.
