Tasers are finally being rolled out to front line police.
I am picking that much of the minor crap that cops have to deal with, drunks, fights etc, might show a marked decrease when someone is looking at the business end of one.
Of course there will always be people who will ignore them and create further trouble.
Just like "smacking" was labelled "beating" by Bradford, expect Locke and Co to cry "torture" everytime one is used.
Green Party human rights spokesperson Keith Locke said the Government should take note of concerns raised about the use of the Taser.
"New Zealand politicians should listen when a reputable UN committee says this 50,000-volt stun gun inflicts 'a form of torture' on its targets," Mr Locke said.
Don't want to be run the risk of torture, behave yourself in public places and don't commit crime.
And Russel the mus wants the Greens to be taken seriously in Mt Albert?
Just remember that "Mr Mainstream" is a front.
