“To Tase and Terrorize”

By MURRAY EVANS, Associated Press Writer 11 minutes ago OKLAHOMA CITY – A woman confronted by police outside a homeless shelter is the latest example of someone who died after being shocked with a Taser, an electric stun gun designed to help officers subdue violent suspects without nightsticks or guns.
“It‘s a legitimate law-enforcement tool,” said Florida State University criminology professor George Kirkham, a former police officer. “But it‘s supposed to be used as a defensive weapon. The problem we‘re seeing around the country is it‘s being used abusively.”


Don’t try and seek out the police to help or get help if you are homeless – they will tase you – just to make a point. Really what the point is, is unclear, but it seems tasing has become the new spectator sport among Oklahoma Law Enforcement Officers.Why am I not surprised?”To Tase and Terrorize…”
