Police Buying Tasers with Federal Stimulus Money

Use of force policy: Columbia police to learn taser don’ts

Officers getting new law enforcement tool

Columbia police officers will begin carrying Tasers in the coming months, thanks to $116,000 in federal stimulus money.

But before officers can use the weapons, which jolt suspects with five-second bursts of electricity to incapacitate them, the city must adapt its “use of force” policy to accommodate the unusual weapon.

And in a world where most people only hear of Tasers when things go wrong — as in, “Don’t tase me, bro!” and the case of the 72-year-old Texas woman Tasered in May — the city’s Taser policy contains more WILL NOTs than WILL DOs, including:

• Police officers WILL NOT use Tasers near flammable liquids

• Police officers WILL NOT pull the trigger continuously to create extended energy bursts

• Police officers WILL NOT use Tasers on suspects who are passively resisting

• Police officers WILL NOT use Tasers on the elderly, medically/mentally challenged or a young child or a pregnant woman — unless the elderly, medically/mentally challenged or young child has a weapon.

• Police officers WILL NOT use Tasers aimed at the eyes, face, neck or genital areas.

“Number one is to have a very effective policy,” said Mike King, the city’s public safety director. “If you notice, the prohibitions do not say ‘shall not’ or ‘should not.’ It is, ‘you will not use it in this instance.’ This helps clearly send a message to the officer that any type of improper use is absolutely not accepted.”

City Council members were scheduled to vote on the use of force policy at their last meeting. But they held off because they had questions about the policy’s directions for Tasers.

Council members plan to have a special work session to discuss the policy in the next few weeks.

Tasers give an officer an “option that doesn’t involve deadly force, so I think it’s something we need to make sure we get done,” Mayor Bob Coble said.

Story might be on local (Phoenix) late news tonight:

The "straw grabbing" contrivance is now to claim that he blocked traffic. The jack boots chose to block traffic by illegally detaining a law abiding citizen. Anderson just wanted to leave, but he was not allowed to do so.

First they tortured him for refusing to answer questions. THEN they told him that he had the right to remain silent. How can there be a duty to answer questions if there is a right to remain silent?

His rights did not just appear when they advised him of them. HE ALREADY KNEW that he had the right to remain silent, and he did so.
They claimed that a DOG gave them "probable cause", and then they claimed that "probable cause" gave them the right to search. "Probable cause" is not the right to search. "Probable cause" is the right to ASK a judge for a search warrant:

Amendment IV – Search and seizure.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

How can law enforcement uphold the law if they violate the laws to govern law enforcement?
The names of the jack booted thugs are in the video. Where are they now?
Real terrorists and smugglers (of either illegal aliens or contraband) know where these "check points" are, and take another route. The only real effect of these "check points" is to condition the American people to accepting the standard practices of tyranny, and to destroy the Bill of Rights. A law that violates the constitution has no authority as much as if it never existed.

We might want to contact the Arizona Hospitality Authority and let them know what is happening in their state. They should be quite concerned that the "law enforcement" activities will most certainly curtail travel and tourism.

You will notice that one jack boot refers to the expectation that he will honor his oath to "support and defend the constitution" as "playing a little game." This is NOT "playing a little game." This is respecting the law, as law enforcement should.
