A Day of Blogging for Justice

Lately in the united states there has been a rash of deaths from Police Taser. Some may ask why ? While I don't purpore to be a expert on these thing I can say one thing for sure, there are more minority deaths from tasers. Should there be more classes and procedures for the police ?All I know is that it has to stop. Hat Tip to AAPP.

Thank you for participating in the Day of Blogging for Justice. I agree that there are an unusually high number of Black people being tased by police.

I invite your blog readers to see what I had to say about taser torture in America and sign online petition seeking congressional hearings.
