If American police admit 72 citizens have been killed by police in the US by tasers, then the odds that the figure is actually four times that, or 288.
If Canadian police admit 22 citizens have been killed by police in Canada by tasers, then the odds that the figure is actually four times that, or 88.
The only reason the police admit that Robert Dziekanski, 40, of Pieszyce, Poland was killed by police using tasers is the chance video-taping by a student which proved they did.
Richard Weinblatt, a POLICE officer, and an EX-CHIEF OF POLICE, not only LIES when he claims tasers are safe, not only LIES when he claims that a 21 year old boy [a student] wielding only a book is a potential terrorist, but he SUPPORTS the TORTURE of U.S. citizens using DEADLY weapons. Such a publicly-stated position MUST remove him from the ability to EVER wear a badge, ever again.
After speaking for 88 seconds to ask 3 questions, and being interrupted several times, and trying to maintain his train of thought and phrase these related questions properly, this student was MANHANDLED and ARRESTED
Observer, you said: However, once informed that he was under arrest, he should have sought redress in court. There is the problem. Look at the videotape. Never one do the police tell him he is under arrest. They grab him and yes, he squirms away; thats perfectly within rights for someone not told hes under arrest. He asks them if hes under arrest, and they say NOTHING. There are no miranda rights read, nothing. Heres the biggest problem of all for the police; one of the policemen claim that Meyer picked HIM up off the ground. The video clearly shows its the policeman that picks MEYER up. Another officer claims she read him the miranda rights. Thats another clear lie. The tape shows she did not.
"An illegal arrest is an assault and battery. The person so attempted to be restrained of his liberty has the same right to use force in defending himself as he would in repelling any other assault and battery." State v. Robinson, 145 ME. 77, 72 ATL. 260
"Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer's life if necessary." Plummer v. State, 136 Ind. 306."
