Stephanie Robinson Speaks: Ban Taser Guns in America

Stephanie Robinson provided powerful commentary on the Tom Joyner Morning Show. She called for a moratorium on the use of taser guns and asked everyone to support the December 4th Day of Blogging for Justice to Stop Taser Torture.

You should be able to hear her words here (Windows Media Player) or here (TJMS website).

What do you think about her commentary on taser abuse in America?

Taser get a lot of coverage, but the problem aren't taser, it's poorly trained officer. Before taser, they were just killing people with asphyxiation, but placing the handcuffs to tight, and leaning on a suspect in supine and prone positions, or choking a struggling victim to control them.

If we get rid of taser, the problem will come in another form. Police officer just don't have good crisis training.

Mrs. Grapevine - I agree with you. I haven't called for the banning of tasers. I think that the issue is poor training and poorly written 'use of force continuum' policy rules.

Anyhow, I hope you join our call for a Day of Blogging for Justice on this topic that has been called for December 4th.
