For a combination of personal and technical reasons, I've not been blogging as much recently as I have in the past. The technical issue are now completely solved, so I should be able to pick-up the pace a bit.
Let's catch-up on some recent news:
The Truth...Not Tasers blog reports [LINK] that the young woman that was tasered in her own bedroom has been found guilty (upon appeal by the Crown) of assault against the police. Those being the very same police that had invaded her bedroom - where she had committed no crime until these police barged in. She is being sent back to the lower court for sentencing (a $1 fine should be sufficient).
Meanwhile, 17-year-old Derrick Jones mysteriously (sic) and coincidentally (sic) died on January 15th after being tasered by a Martinsville, Virgina police officer. Jones was in his own home at the time. [LINK] Obviously there's no connection between him being tasered and being found dead moments later. Young teens drop dead all the time - right?
The combination of these two news stories is disturbing. You can cogitate all you want - but there is simply no solution...
...except a moratorium.
A moratorium would solve quite a few problems all at once.
