A recent post at the Truth ... Not Tasers blog here [LINK] included images of the logos for the USA "Institute for the Prevention of In-Custody Deaths" and the "Canadian Centre for the Prevention of In-Custody Deaths". The two logos are very nearly identical.
[Fair Use / Fair Dealing for logo extract is righteously claimed.]
Both of these logos include features from the symbol for medicine, the Caduceus [WIKI].
Wiki: "The caduceus is typically depicted as a short herald's staff entwined by two serpents in the form of a double helix, and sometimes is surmounted by wings."
Neither of these two so-called 'organizations' are really morally entitled to use key style elements from a symbol of medicine. The US outfit is basically Dr. John G. Peters, but he is not a medical doctor. His PhD was in 'Applied Management and Decision Sciences'. His C.V. indicates that he started out as a patrol officer (a key indicator of pro-Taser views). And the 'Canadian' (?) outfit is basically a Guelph Police Constable named Gary Mulder doing some after-hours freelancing. I'll go out on a limb here and assume that he also lacks a medical degree (corrections welcomed, LOL).
In both of these logos (one is basically a direct copy of the other), the herald's staff has been replaced with what appears to be a law enforcement officer, taking the position of Jesus on The Cross (oh, puhleeze...), holding the Scales of Justice (which is just plain wrong), and the officer is entwined by two serpents. The serpents are depicted in black, which I assume represents the nifty black turtleneck shirts often worn by the Taser Smith-for-brains brothers.
So there you have it. Lady Justice [WIKI] has been kicked aside. The Scales of Justice are now held by an ugly and balding, yet strangely beef-cake law enforcement officer. And the officer is completely entwined by a pair of Satan's own black serpents; does this representing control by something evil and sinister?
You certainly can't accuse these folks of false advertising. Their logos are exactly correct.
