49. As I wheeled into my library today
I noticed three cops cars outside. On entering, I encountered one of the officers as I was returning my videos.

I asked him if tasers were used in our county. He said, yes they were and he was 100% behind their use. We talked about them for about ten minutes, I giving examples of their abuses. He gave his reason for them:

In the three years of use, he has not had one scraped knee or a bloody uniform.

Btw, he had not heard of the deaths caused by these torture tools.
I politely asked him to google taser+epileptic+death and to watch the video. He said he would.

The reason I wanted him to watch that particular video, was because both he and I have Grand Mal seizures and know what it is like when your neurons are still in the wacked out state.

I got his name from his nameplate and will follow up to see if he does, in fact, watch the video and ask for his response.
