Cardinals manager Tony La Russa offered his opinion that the use of a taser on the exuberant baseball fan was appropriate, "I just think it's acceptable, because it's a good deterrent." [LINK]
Yes siree Bob. That's exactly what we need. The police using human cattle-prods because they're "a good deterrent".
Maybe anyone caught exceeding the speed limit should be pistol-whipped by the officer right on the spot. A good deterrent.
How about an immediate 'Crown of Thorns' for anyone daring to back-talk to an authority figure? A good deterrent. Anyone object?
Yep, police-imposed deterrents would certainly eliminate the requirement for that pesky legal system with all them-there courts.
It only takes a smidgen of common sense to realize that this sort of highly ill-informed attitude is a huge danger to everyone's hard-won freedom. Not just those that run around the playing field at a professional sports event.
Geesh - they should really reinstate Grade 6 'Civics' classes ASAP.
