Am I Not Human: Taser Justice

The Blogging day on December 4 demanding Taser Justice is timely, and direly needed. The first day of blogging event opened alot of eyes, but there are more minds that need to be aware of the serious lows taser abuses plummet to on what appears to be a regular basis.
The amounts of murders by taser over the past few years and this year alone is astounding. Calls for congressional hearings have been made in the Afrosphere, and we're still waiting. Can we trust officers to stand for justice or is the overwhelming majority of law enforcement intent on killing with unnecessary deadly force? Aren't officers subjected to Mental Health screenings before they're given positions? And if yes, how is it possible so many have taken blood-thirsty action against innocent citizens?

Make sure your demands for justice are heard?
There are a few actions we can currently take. Please visit the information beyond the links to see which you're able to lend energy to:

Sign the petition demanding a congressional investigation into Taser Torture

Unbelievable. What happened to the days when officers had to train to have the strength to hold down someone resisting arrest, and cuff them?
The taser is totally worthless when it does as much damage as a gun.
I look forward to the legislation that takes tasers out of the picture, and introduces extremely severe penalties for renegade officers. There need to be cameras on officers that film everything at all times, it seems (seeing as taking an oath doesn't do the trick...).

Thankyou for sharing this, Jennifer.
