Don’t Tase Me, Bro …. Wait. That’s Not Funny.

taser_laser.jpgFor some reason, video of a Polish man being tasered to death was made available on YouTube so that all the world could experience this man’s last blood curdling scream before the life was snuffed out of him. The details of the incident, if you choose (wisely) not to watch the video, are that Robert Dziekanski, a Polish man, who had taken his first flight ever, landed in Vancouver. Basically, he began acting erratically — he started throwing shit because, so far as I can tell, he spoke a language no one could understand and therefore no one could help him. However, it didn’t appear that the man was putting up a struggle before he got tasered. But, Canadian police shocked him twice, and Dziekanski writhed around for a few seconds and then died.

At any rate, the video — filmed by some guy on a his cell phone — is here, if you want to see it.

This is pretty big news here in Canada right now. The RCMP's version of the event was that Dziekanski was violent and fought them, resulting in the use of the taser. The guy who took the video says the RCMP took his camera away from him and then refused to return it. He eventually got it back and posted the vid to refute their claims.

At this point, there's a big outcry and debate, with the media and (some of) the public expressing shock and calling for a ban, and the RCMP sticking to its story and suggesting there were other factors -- drugs, pre-existing condition, or some kind of stress overload -- that caused his death.

So just be careful at the airport, 2010 Olympic visitors!

Well, so much for visiting Canada -- these thugs couldn't even begin to ask the man or at least try to get an interpreter to ask the man what the HELL was wrong!
It appears the Canadians, whom I've always thought were MORE CIVIL the the Americans, have brought into the shoot/taser/kill first, then ask questions that the US law enforcement agencies employ nowadays. It appears the US authorities, have sold their abusive policies against the common citizen to CANADA and they have BOUGHT IT!

WHY, WITH ARMED THUGS LIKE THIS TERRORIZING US, WHO THE HELL NEEDS BIN LADEN AND HIS GANG?

I wonder how the RCMP is going to handle this, sure, there were other factors, and they had time to find out about them? And what if the poor soul was on drugs, or had a pre-existing condition? DOES THAT MEAN THEY KILL HIM? DOES THAT GIVE THE RCMP A RIGHT TO TASER HIM TO DEATH?

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH US CIVILIZED SOCIETIES ALLOWING THIS TO HAPPEN WITHOUT EVEN BALKING AND BEING SICK ABOUT IT?

ASK YOURSELF!!!!

HELL NO, I'LL NEVER GO TO CANADA! FOR THIS TYPE OF TREATMENT, I COULD EASILY STAY IN THE U.S. AND GET IT!

All caps in the comment section?

That's a taserin'.
