The AfroSpear is calling on all bloggers to join them in a Day of Justice: Standing Up Against the Police Pre-Trial Electrocution on today. The rules are simple and easy:
1) Share a post on your blog focused on your concerns about the tasering of Black folks.
2) Send an email to AfricanAmericanPoliticalPundit@gmail.com so they can document everyone's participation.
Ill be honest, I don't have much to say about this subject that hasn't been said before (I hate redundancy). While I think that a taser can be an important tool for subduing unruly citizens, I believe it is being overused, particularly when it comes to a certain segment of the population. I also have some concerns as to its safety: it cant be that safe if folks all across the US are dying after being tased.
