The Times headline is "Jacqui
Smith's Taser plan suffers blow after Met Police Authority's
rejection," which sounds the ticket, but the
other forces across England and Wales are expected to
take delivery of their share.
The Metropolitan Police do not want more tasers in
case the fear generated causes divisions between the
public and police.
I am against wider use of taser weapons because they
are suspected of causing over three hundred deaths in
the USA and our police forces in the UK have become
subjects of government manipulation beyond what is acceptable
by any reasonable person's standards.
There are videos on YouTube which show the horrors
of what a taser can do in the hands of a stupid or sadistic
Perhaps the 'authorities' are privately forecasting
a major depression, rather than a mere recession which
Alistair Darling reckons will be easing off by the end
of 2009. The police might need these tasers to keep
the public in line if we are forced to revolt.
You better order some more, Jacqui Smith, just to be
sure your police state keeps on track. If you did not
belong to a government of traitors and band of thieves,
Home Secretary, you would bring back proper policing
and sentencing instead.
