Putting Tasers in Schools

By liam

I don’t know a lot about the context of this school and what the rationale might be for doing something so severe as to use Tasers against children, but I do know this: Treating people like criminals will have one major result. They’ll become criminals.

Full story here .

Tasers have already been desrcibed by the United Nations as a tool of torture and yet brainiacs all over the continent are finding new and creative places to put them to subdue ‘the people’.

I notice that the event in Winnipeg received honourable mention in this article:

The anecdotal evidence of Walczak’s argument has been striking in recent years as news media have publicized claims stemming from alleged excessive force by using Tasers. Many cases involve teenagers.

Last month, a 17-year-old Winnipeg boy wielding a knife became the youngest Canadian to die after being zapped by a Taser. His family is considering a lawsuit against authorities.

When kids start dying in high school corridors simply because hall monitors chose to use a Taser, what will we then call ‘excited delirium’? Will it become another manufactured ‘disease’ like ADHD?
