Wait, wasn't the "Don't taze me bro" dude a sympathetic figure to lefty types?
Speaking for the international brohood of lefty types, he was sympathetic to us as a victim of excessive force by security forces.

The incident served to show the world the dangers of tasers and to stimulate a discussion of their use, abuse, misuse. This is a particularly good discussion to have now, while the torture issue is on everyone's mind.

I am not saying there is no legitimate use of tasers ever. I'm undecided on that; I'd rather be tased than shot and it might be better than getting clubbed on the head too. But we should develop better tools and standards for deploying them.
