Police Murder Two More People With Tasers

Steal Groceries, Go to Jail Get Electrocuted to Death By Police.

Via Digby.

As one of Digby's commenters points out, rule of law don't mean nothin' when the precedents are situations like an African immigrant reaching for his wallet, his body getting ripped apart by dozens of police bullets, and those same police officers going free.

I'm really not sure how much more we need to know about the danger of taser guns before somebody in political power actually decides to give a damn and challenge their rampant, unregulated use.

Justice. It's a nice concept. The gap between in-theory and in-practice seems to be getting wider all the time.
