Following on the recent death of a Polish national at Vancouver’s YVR airport after he was Tasered by cops, the RCMP have new rules for use of the law enforcement device: RCMP officers from now on only fire the electric stun guns at suspects who are combative or resisting arrest.
Um, I sort of assumed that was the procedure before the incident. Does this mean the RCMP are now admitting that their officers could use Tasers on suspects who were not combative or resisting arrest, but merely uppity? Interesting.
