so, kids have been tased for having hissy fits in school, for not taking a shower when told to, why not tase them before they're even born. seems like the logical next step, no?

http://womensrights.change.org/blog/view/court_rules_it_is_perfectly_reasonable_to_taser_pregnant_women

summary: 7 months pregnant women caught doing 12 miles over the limit. refuses to sign the ticket or get out of the car. cops tase her 3 times, finally drag her out of the car, throw her belly down on the floor to handcuff her, and arrest her.

for doing 12 miles over the limit. what the fuck is this world coming to?

and a court of appeals ruled 2:1 that this was a justifiable tasing. well, of fucking course they do.

bullshit bullshit fucking bullshit.

o.O

wow....

I am betting the other two judges were male.

and... refusing to sign isn't an arrestable offence, says the judge... civil lawsuit anyone?!?!?!? OY!

Altho ... if one wanted to get around the crazy abortion laws one could clearly do so by repeatedly resisting arrest and getting the crap tasered out of one until it brought on a miscarriage. (end sarcasm)

i saw some show down at my mum's that was about ridiculous imprisonments. this one guy stole a 6 pack of beer out of a fridge in a garage. he's in jail for something stupid like 20 years for it. first offense. because the fridge was in a garage, it made the offense some ridiculous felony, and despite appeal after appeal, this young dude will spend his 20s and 30s at least in prison. he's been beaten in there and god knows what else. for nicking a 6 pack. that's all he did.

but this is a free country.
