Canada To Change Airport Procedures After Taser Death


The border authorities say they will change procedures to assist arrivals of foreign nationals but there is scant mention, in fact there is no mention of their taser policy.

How many more have to die before it is accepted that tasers are lethal?

Canada's Border Services Agency says it will change its operation at Vancouver airport following the death of an immigrant stunned with a police Taser.

Robert Dziekanski's final moments were captured on video by another traveller and the recording sparked outrage when it was broadcast two weeks ago.

Antoine di Zazzo, identified by AFP as "one of the biggest Taser representatives" outside the United States, said his company is "developing a mini-flying saucer like drone which could also fire Taser stun rounds on criminal suspects or rioting crowds. He expects it to be launched next year and to be sold internationally by Taser."more There are numerous taser related links from this site.
