I’m glad people are reacting against this action by the police and I hope that in future Canadians will be even more intolerant towards authoritarianism in all its forms. Tasers are dangerous weapons – period – and they SHOULD NOT BE USING TASERS except against armed criminals. But maybe barbarism is the hip thing now for the ruling parties – the latest fad – and they want us to get used to it. And the latest business trend is selling “non-lethal” weapons to governments like tasers and the crowd control auditory weapons recently used by the Georgian government against its people – supplied by our allies. Along with ID cards and biometric technology. It’s amazing how police departments can afford this weaponry as Canadians get poorer and deeper into debt because of taxation. It’s a total disgrace. Our value-free society is in total melt-down and it’s run by a bunch of thugs who we enable and we let them get away with it. They’re strutting their stuff, boy! You sure showed (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8917991111323273442&hl=en-GB) us! Yes, I’m getting the “message”.

Another person who has missed the boat. It’s not the Tasers, its their method of use, in this case completely unwarranted use.
If tasers are responsible for the death of 1% of the people who they are used against and there are 100 instances of their use that is one single person.
Take the Taser away and tell me how many potential deaths out of that 100 there would be when the police resort to their only other stand off weapon, the 9mm pistol.
