Excuse me? Don't you mean "Neo Conservative's BT co-blogger and Blogging Tory co-founder Stephen Taylor"?
I wonder why Stephen Taylor's BT co-Blogger and Blogging Tory Neo Conservative wants to minimize murder? Is he soft on criminals? What a hug-a-thug liberal...
If we just banned avalanches, wouldn't that solve the problem? He never sees the obvious!
Taser, avalanche...potato, potahto.What a cretin.
how 'bout a ban on teh stupid?KEvron
"Neo Conservative's BT co-blogger and Blogging Tory co-founder Stephen Taylor" makes a good point, while we all know that tasers should only be used when necessary, and the rules need to be reviewed on their use Canada wide. A lot of people wanted to ban them, even though they are a useful tool for the police. Nobody tasered that I know of was in a lawful or peaceful state.
Sorry Wayne, but both he and you are dead wrong. The problem is that tasers are being used as the first resort, when not necessary. Robert Dziekanski was angry frustrated and confused after being trapped in Vancouver airport. In the old days, before tasers, the cops would have had no choice but to do the right thing - get a translator and talk him down. Indeed, a translator could have diffused the situation almost immediately. Instead, they shot first, with no provocation (and no, throwing a table or a printer is not provocation).Robert Dziekanski was in a lawful state - he had caused minor damage, but had assaulted no one until he was killed.Given all that, tasers should be banned. the provide a short cut to force that the police shouldn't have. Call it the law of unintended consequences - tasers seemed to solve one problem, but actually created a worse problem.
I wasn't aware that the police were strapping people to snowboards and pushing them down mountains to their deaths. Now that Mr Taylor has made me aware of this, of course I agree with him 100%.Or, wait, is he comparing people being tased for no good reason with people choosing to partake in a dangerous sport with full knowledge of the risks involved? Hmmm, that can't be right, because that would be fucking moronic.
