“WHITE NORTH MADHOUSE”
IMPUNITY ON HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS Robert Dziekanski. he is not the only casualty of the police tasering in this country, there are dozens of victims who have been murdered by the police across the nation. The stun gun used by the cops to kill the polish immigrant is a mortal weapon that spreads 50,000 volts of energy. Experts in the U.S. and Canada in different occasions expressed the dangerousness and deadly consequences On the potential link between Taser use and death: "Since June 2001, more than 330 people in the USA are reported to have died after being struck by police Tasers...Many were subjected to multiple or prolonged shocks, often far more than the standard five-second cycle, despite warnings for several years of the potential health risks of such deployment."For how long the public should tolerate that the books are closed on another murder done by the police (RCMP), even though the coroner ruled the death of Roberto Dziekanski as a homicide? The impunity of the crimes committed by the police is a part of approval and indifference of the Canadian government, giving a green light the cops to commit crimes in the civilian population.
TORONTO STAR: RCMP Taser use has fallen sharply in wake of Robert Dziekanski’s death: Editorial
While Tasering someone who poses a danger is preferable to shooting, police now recognize better than they did a decade ago that they must think twice before reaching for stun weapons.

The 2007 death of Robert Dziekanski, after being Tasered by RCMP at Vancouver airport, was not entirely in vain as use of such conducted energy weapons by police since then has fallen by nearly half.

It has been more than five years since Canadians were shocked by the case of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski, who died of a heart attack on Oct. 14, 2007, after being Tasered five times by Mounties at Vancouver’s airport. The incident, graphically captured on video, sparked an inquiry and led to a tightening of the rules for using so-called conducted energy weapons.
In 2008, before retired justice Thomas Braidwood completed his inquiry, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police reported they used or threatened to use conducted energy weapons 1,069 times, nation-wide. By 2012 that had dropped sharply to 633 uses. That’s an encouraging 41-per-cent decrease. And the Mounties increasingly are using the threat of stun guns, rather than firing them, to control suspects. Actual use on suspects dropped from 51 per cent of the time to 35 per cent.
Police elsewhere are showing similar restraint. The Toronto Police Service used stun guns 273 times last year, down from 333 uses in 2007. And in more than half the cases Toronto police merely had to show the stun gun to control a suspect. It’s worth noting, too, that almost all stun gun use is restricted to front line supervisors or emergency task force officers. That’s another safeguard.
While stunning a person who poses a danger is preferable to shooting, police now recognize better than they did a decade ago that they must think twice before reaching for stun weapons. Claims that they are harmless have been exploded. They can be deadly to people who are highly agitated, or if a person is continuously or repeatedly stunned. Officers are generally required to issue a verbal warning and to use the weapons only in cases where a suspect inflicts or threatens bodily harm. That much, at least, has been learned from a man’s needless death.
