Addendum to previous post:
"Vancouver police fired the taser 27 times in 2008 and pointed it 36 times... The VPD's use of the weapon in 2008 was markedly lower than in 2007 (74 times), 2006 (93) and in 2005 (66). No reason was provided for the decrease." [LINK]
Hmmm... I wonder why the taser use dropped off after, say, around about mid-October 2007?

5. Roman Andreichikov, 25 – Vancouver, BC - May 1, 2004 - X26

17. Robert Dziekanski, 40 - Vancouver, BC - October 14, 2007 - RCMP - taser was found to be a contributing factor in death
You don't have to be a friggen Einstein to work out the reason for the decrease. Duh. Another unfortunate death. But with a cellphone camera capturing the truth. Official lies exposed. Public reaction. Political reaction.
You watch - next time they'll start by tasering the witnesses holding cellphone cameras.
