Taser Use: Call for an Immediate Ban!

It is unacceptable that a civilized society would resort to this kind of barbaric methods to subdue unarmed "agitated" persons!
The use of Tasers has proven to be deadly - does anyone have any questions in this regard?.
Is this the kind of violence we want to live with?
Don't we have other choices?

"Agitated" is no reason to die for...

Hi Alicia,
you wrote a very moving, strong letter to Mr. Day below and I commend you for it.

I am at a loss to understand why this world is no reactionary. Not the values I grew up with.
