Robert Dziekanski’s mother has filed a lawsuit alleging excessive force and “cruel and unusual” treatment by the four RCMP officers who stunned her son with a Taser.
Full story: Dziekanski's mom files lawsuit over Taser death
Do police rely too heavily on Tasers?
did anyone care 10 years ago when tasers were used to resolve situations and no one died... 10 years before that the same person would have been shot and killed because the only other option police had was a revolver.
now people are so pathetic they feel even tasers are to dangerous... well I think your right, lets go back to police carrying only Glocks, no other use of force options.
then 5 years from now everyone will cry for tasers to be used, why were they ever taken away, oh wait it was because idiot armchair quarter backs thought they knew how to do a police officers job better then the police do.
to any and all law enforcement out there, thanks for doing what you do.

Quebec police shoot man dead outside McDonald's
By THE CANADIAN PRESS
SOREL-TRACY, Que. - Quebec provincial police shot a 29-year-old man dead Wednesday in a McDonald's parking lot northeast of Montreal.
The man, pronounced dead in hospital, was shot just before noon in the city of Sorel-Tracy.
"The officer recognized the suspect as a man who was recently implicated in a violent case," said Const. Olivier Lapointe of Montreal police, which took over the investigation.
Lapointe said as the officers approached the man outside the restaurant, he pulled out a metal bar and started swinging it.
"The officer responded with a gun," he said.
A provincial police officer was also taken to hospital to be treated for shock.

Read the whole paragraph again. If you have any intelligence whatsoever, hopefully you will be able to figure it out.

What are you babbling about "cover up"?
What is it with you smart guys and cover ups and conspiracies?
Do you have a tin foil hat like Brucie/billyq or something?

I don't think there's that many of them is all.
I wonder which weapon smart Matt would prefer to be on the receiving end of, a taser or a gun?
