Support our petition to Congress calling for public hearings on the systemic human rights violations occurring with Federal funding for the use of ® against American citizens. The United Nation's Committee Against Torture has declared that Taser use can constitute a form of torture, while USA: has an on-going concern about the use of tasers on American citizens.

Woman tasers Male Cop with his own TaserIn my opinion, intentional or negligent pre-trial electrocution and execution of persons who have not even been arraigned is unlawful and constitues murder. Therefore anyone who believes that they are about to be a victim of this violence is within their rights to use such force as may be necessary avoid being murdered by a police officer or officers.
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — Police have arrested a woman they said used a Utah Highway Patrol trooper's Taser on him. Lisa Parker, 41, was booked into the Salt Lake County jail for investigation of aggravated assault, interference with an arresting officer and unauthorized control of a motor vehicle. Authorities said a Utah Highway Patrol trooper pulled over a truck he thought was stolen on Saturday.
Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Jeff Nigbur said the officer attempted to arrest the female passenger but she hit him with her shoe and bit him.
Nigbur said the trooper tried to use his Taser but it didn't fire, so he threw it aside. But authorities say Parker picked it up and fired a shock called a "dry stun" into the officer.
A K-9 unit and back-up officer arrived, and Parker eventually was Tasered. More HERE
