One lefty blogger who makes me sick with envy is, of course, digby, who has today taken on an issue guesting for Greenwald that I’ve wanted to write about for a while now: Tasers. Very nice work of course, which said everything I would have said. This country really needs to take a skeptical look at the use of these weapons, which are supposed to preclude the use of deadly force. However, these suckers aren’t always set to “stun.” Sometimes, they kill. But since police don’t think of them as a potentially fatal weapon, law enforcement does sometimes tend to use them a bit liberally. Not to mention, there are some civil liberties issues to be considered regarding the use of these bizarre weapons. Nice piece by digby, thanks.
