Taser Madness

In a sane world everyone, of every ideology, would be on the streets protesting the ever escalating and unneccessary use of tasers in routine law enforcement encounters. Today's edition, 9th Circuit upholds tasering a pregnant woman for refusing to sign a traffic ticket.

If the Tea Party tantrum throwers were really concerned about losing their freedom, this is what they should be holding up signs about. Their tax dollars pay for this brutalization of the citizenry and anyone could be next. And what the hell happened to the 9th Circuit? They used to be rather reliably on the side of civil liberties. If they've gone over to the authoritarians, they we're lost.
