The President of The United States has been sent a letter intended to draw his attention to the many civil rights violations inherent with, even encouraged by, tasers.
See copy of letter on the Truth...Not Tasers blog. [LINK]
The letter pulls no punches. It accuses Taser International and its associates of serious corporate and personal malfeasance.
"Representatives of the company that manufacturers electronic torture devices lied to Police Officials when they told them that the devices had been tested and were found to be non-lethal. They bragged instead about the excruciating agony and terror caused by their use. ... They scammed an all-too-willing law enforcement community with half truths and outright lies." [emphasis added]
This open letter puts Taser International and its associates into an awkward quandary. Do they just let it pass, thereby passively acknowledging the accuracy of the accusations? Or do they want to take it to court, thereby opening themselves to a detailed judicial review of their past and present corporate behaviour (including all their up-to-now private communications)?
Their best option is to issue a pseudo-indignant press release, then file a formal civil complaint as late as is reasonably possible, and then ever-so-slowly drag it through the courts for years and years and years.
Eventually, when they might be forced to open their Corporate kimono (potentially very embarrassing and legally-lethal for them), they'll just quietly drop the whole matter.
