The Province of Ontario has decreed that all front line police "officers" (in truth, only a military man is an officer, but I digress); may, according to the rules of individual police jurisdictions, permit the widespread use of a taser. Well, we just saw a Toronto police supervisor using a taser on young Sammy Yatim after the lad had been shot 8 times. Not very comforting is it? Not very reassuring is it?
And what about the mobile crisis units that have been recommended by juries for decades? I guess our mentally ill brothers and sisters are "too expensive" to spend money on. So, exchange a bullet for a discharge of deadly electricity. Welcome to the culture of death.
