More Fall Under the Prongs

Of course, the world never stops spinning, and police officers with Tasers will probably use them.

In North Carolina, a young man who had high hopes is brought low by a taser. Apparently, whatever outrage and horror that one should feel as a result of this is rendered moot by the fact that he had marijuana hidden in a sock, which police found in a search after the fact. This article provides more questions than answers, but hopefully now that the lawyer hired by the lad's mother has found a new key witness, we can know what officers were thinking.

An incident sure to draw fire from the legal department at Taser International, the death of an individual from Idaho, who died after being hit with a Taser, has been ruled a homicide. The family and freedom-lovers everywhere want answers.
