I'm guessing we still have some work to do on that whole "necessity for deadly force" thing:
An RCMP officer in Kelowna, B.C., will be disciplined for using a Taser stun gun on a 68-year-old stroke victim over a parking violation.
Supt. Bill McKinnon said the incident grew out of a simple traffic stop that escalated when John Peters drove away.
John Peters, 68, says he raised his arm to try to protect himself before an RCMP officer shot him with a Taser gun.
The senior admitted he first drove away when a police officer tried to give him a ticket for double parking.
Peters told CBC News he then stopped a short distance away. The officer stunned him with the Taser once while he was still in his car, and again when he got out, Peters said.
Responded the Blogging Tories' Neo Conservative, "Oh, will you give it a rest? I mean, how many 68-year-old stroke victims have been Tasered in Canada in the last 10 years? I'll tell you: one. So get over it already!"
Neo then went on to make an even more appalling and inappropriate analogy, but his readers' brains had already exploded from the stupid overload.
