Welcome to The Stop Taser Torture Blog

This is the 1

A Day before blogging for justice Ready, Start, blog!

The Stop Taser Torture blog is the official blog that coordinates the annual December 4th event called, Stop Taser Torture, blogging for Justice.

Many police departments are using tasers to torture even nonviolent people who are often those who are incoherent, hallucinating, wheelchair bound, suicidal, unarmed, deaf, handcuffed, blind, pregnant, students, or just didnt move fast enough for an officers liking. Taser torture in America is continuously growing not only in volume, but in the level of how liberally, unwarrantedly, and excessively tasering is being used across the U.S and many other countries. In America, some police departments are even now torturing 10 year old children.

Green Party of Suffolk Calls for Moratorium on Tasers - Joins "Stop Taser Torture Blogging For Justice Day."

When it comes to political guts regarding taser torture in America, the Democrats are spineless, the Republicans gutless, but the folks from the Green Party continue to show character. As reported by the Independent Political Report the Green Party of Suffolk is willing to challenge the status quo, and has called for a moratorium on Taser use in Suffolk County, New York.

Here is what they have to say: 

Green Party of Suffolk 

The Green Party of Suffolk is outraged to discover that Suffolk County has been using Tasers against its residents,” said its chair Roger Snyder. “It is inconceivable that Suffolk has continued to use Tasers after residents have died after being tasered.”

Snyder outlined the Green Party’s plan to protect the lives of Suffolk residents: “In line with its pillar of nonviolence, the Green Party of Suffolk demands Suffolk County seek out ways to avoid the use of easily abused and potentially lethal Tasers. As an immediate step, the Green Party of Suffolk calls on the county to put a moratorium on the use or purchase of any Tasers. In the long term, the Green Party calls on the county to train the police in nonviolent methods of resolving situations.”

The existence of Taser use in Suffolk County was brought to light by the death of a Darryl Bain after he was tasered by the Suffolk Police.  According to Newsday, Bain is the fourth person to die after being tasered by Suffolk Police.  Amnesty International USA has found that 350 people died in the United States and Canada after being shot by Tasers since June 2001.

The Stop Taser Torture movement salutes the Green Party for it's leadership, and it appreciative of it's support of the upcoming blogging for Justice Day.
