10. We need new guidlines for Taser usage.
I'm starting to think we need some new guidelines for Taser usage. It seems like every other instance of police brutality in the last few years has involved a cop Tasing the crap out of someone for a minor offense (like getting out of a car too slowly). Just because it is allegedly nonlethal, doesn't mean you can Tase grandma because the weeds in her front lawn are too tall. Remember Marvin Booker in Denver? Before they sat on his chest and left him facedown on the floor of his cell, they Tased him. The police seem to be adopting a "Tase now, ask questions later" approach to interacting with people, and it's not a good thing.
