We have heard quite a bit from the "law and order" crowd about the many lives that have been saved by Tasers.
So allow us to ask...
How many lives were saved by this Utah police officer?
Judge for yourselves:
Police in the country are now allowed to torture speeders by the side of the highway in order to get them to comply. The only difference between this officer slugging the speeder in the stomach and putting 50,0000 volts of electricity in him is that the latter doesn't leave any marks. The intent, the pain and the goose-stepping authoritarian message are exactly the same. Word to the wise. Do not ever question the police, no matter whether they are violating your rights, ignoring the constitution or breaking the law.
It is perfectly legal for them to torture you on the spot if you do.
I'm feeling so free I can hardly breathe.
