Taser them all!!

The RCMP are soon going to be known (if they aren't already) as the tasercops. They love their little toy. They have forgotten all the martial arts training and safe takedown techniques they were taught, forget talking to the perp, forget subduing him using reasonable force - just whip out the stungun and fire away.

Unarmed naked man killed by Vancouver Mounties (Tasers 'r' us).

Yes, I corrected the title.

The guy was naked, unarmed and they just had to taser him! Obviously, he was in an upset state of mind. There were many coppers there - why not a simple rush and takedown?

Obviously, not nearly as much fun as electrocution.

Yah, they love the tasers don't they except when it really matters?

Like the greyhound incident, then they forgot all about their numerous law enforcement options.

OH well better to tase naked individuals, they probably got their jollies from that one.
