The world has reached a point where whenever something goes wrong – when something bad happens: a car bomb, a disease outbreak or a tsunami – people – especially the victims – blame the USA. This is a remarkably simplistic and yet sophisticated reaction – the universal scapegoat
The use of taser weapons by US police has been linked to 152 deaths since 2001, according to a report published Tuesday by Amnesty International. The report found that most fatal taser electrocutions involved unarmed subjects who posed no serious threat to cops or civilians at the time of weapon discharge. Many were electrocuted while already in restraints and/or received multiple electroshocks.
