No Tasers for San Francisco police!

March 11, 2011

Open letter to San Francisco officials from the San Francisco Gray Panthers: Tasers do not belong in any police force.

Tell SF Police Commission Wednesday: NO Tasers!

February 21, 2011

Your community needs you at the Police Commission hearing on Tasers: this Wednesday, Feb. 23, 5:30 p.m., in Room 400, City Hall. A study found that in the first year of Taser usage, sudden deaths in custody go up 550 percent and officer shootings more than double. The United Nations and Amnesty International consider Tasers to be torture devices, and the American Civil Liberties Union, the National Lawyers Guild, and the NAACP oppose their use. It is certain that Taser usage does not lead to fewer shootings.
