The use of Tasers by police forces across the [UK] Midlands has hit record numbers with two potentially deadly incidents now taking place EVERY DAY. Cops have used the controversial stun guns twice as many times in the last 12 months as in the previous five years combined. ...[LINK]
As I've pointed out many times before, tasers are used about one hundred times as often as guns ever would have been used. The police in the UK are historically unarmed, so I'm not sure what baseline could be used.
But it's obvious that these portable electro-torture devices are being used as a street level ASBO, without all that pesky due-process.
Trust me. It's all going to go pear shaped, and it'll all end in tears.
Fact: tasers can kill. Randomly. Without warning.
Police taser one too many ASBO-child and they'll end up with a death on their hands.
Watch for an outbreak of "excited delirium" in the UK.
