Cyclist beware ! Innocent cyclist tasered!
Tasers are 'less-lethal' weapons. They aren't non-lethal for the simple reason that they have killed people, perticlarly those with weak hearts or pacemakers.
Certain groups where very concerned with there introduction as rather than being used as an alternative to guns (which would seem sensible) past experience with law enforcement leads to the conclusion that they will be abused.
But this blog isn't about civil rights. It's about climate change. Well, one way to reduce climate change is to ride a bike. In the UK this may at times give you a feeling of second class citizenship, but probably not a fear of tasers!
In the US, however, fear of tasers for cyclists would seem to be rational...
Take a look at this extrodinary case of a cyclist being tasered for, well cycling!
