Justice May Be Blind, But She’s Got A Taser



A recent post on William Grigg’s blog, Pro-Libertate, outlines a story that I would not have been able to believe, except for two things. One, I had read about it a few days previous in my local paper, second, in America today anything goes when it comes to the actions of the police.

Apparently, the police in upstate New York had a suspect – a suspect, nothing more – that they wished to obtain a DNA sample from. The suspect – a suspect, nothing more – refused. So the police used a taser gun on him until he complied. Read that last sentence again.

Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Sperrazza ruled that what the police did was perfectly acceptable, because it wasn’t done “maliciously, or to an excessive extent, or with resulting injury”.

Is there a way to use a taser gun in a non-malicious manner?
