Police Want To Fry You…With 50,000 Volts.

Hot on the heels of the latest taser death to hit Australia 2 weeks ago, W.A police have had one of the most brazen cases of insulting ill- timed arrogance i have seen in recent memory. The Police Union, in Thursday’s  West (below), now want to double the amount of tasers in operation! What else would you expect from a vile organisation like the Police Union? Not content with slowly cooking members of the public to death in the back of their paddy wagons, they now want to pump you full of 50,000 volts of electricity whenever their judgement befits it.  But this is the real kicker: they want a pay increase to do it! That is, they want your money so they can kill you. Not even Ivan Milat had the gaul to ask for a transaction before he slugged his victims. And that’s not as far away from the truth as you might think. In North America, there has been 414 deaths directly related to tasering from 1999 to January of this year.

Police union president-elect Russell Armstrong had this to say: “frontline officers who are routinely putting their safety at risk should be compensated for that”. You’ve got to be joking. This is what police officers are supposed to be doing. Not sitting in cubicles checking if all the boxes have been ticked on a moving-on notice. doesn’t this supposed increase in crime also suggest that police aren’t doing their jobs properly? Pretty damn audacious asking for a pay increase when you can’t do your job. I can’t see the bartender getting a rise in his miserly hourly rate if he says his punters are too drunk and are making too much noise. By the way Armstrong was talking you’d think these cops were in Mexico. Now that’s a fair claim for danger money. Not in Perth, a glorified 19th century hick town where officers are NEVER shot at. I wonder how many police officers have actually died as a result of actions by the public? If i wasn’t so lazy  i would get you the figures, but i reckon it would be pretty close to zilch anyway.

But wait, there’s more! 

Just when you thought this pandering to Perth’s conservative prejudices couldn’t possibly be stretched any further, out pop more disgruntled government departments from the woodwork. This was in Friday’s west:

Is it just me or does this stink of irony from the Australian Nursing Federation? How often do we hear from nurses that they’re over worked and under paid, yet they want to introduce a weapon that causes injury and death into their own house. Unbelievable.

 The outrageous idea of giving rent-a-cops on trains tasers is even stupider then giving it to police…just. These people are less educated then the police  (training wise) and are less accountable, especially in the public’s eyes, than the police.

The results have spoken for themselves over in America. When you give low intelligent police officers who hate most of the people they deal with a deadly weapon, it’s more than likely going to be abused and people will be murdered. Vulnerable people, such as the mentally ill, are the most susceptible and we’ve just seen that play out tragically in Queensland.

To put it simply, it’s just plain wrong.

 check out this tasering from the U.S and tell me the police wouldn’t hesitate for a second to electrocute your arse for having one too many pints and acting like a bloody fool: (note the comical screaming of ‘TASER, TASER, TASER’ from the robocops.)

Sleep well!

  1. I like the comment from Phil Woodcock(-head) from the Australian Rail, Tram and Bus Industry Union: “Society seems to be going backwards…”

    I would like to know where exactly in his busy rail, tram and bus organising schedule he found the time to study social trends to such an extent that he can use the backwards slide of society as a justification for arming rent-a-cops with deadly weapons!

    Clearly though, Woodcock is an authoritative figure when it comes to the movements of society – we must find him to ask exactly how far backwards society is going! I for one hope it is the 80s, so we can happily sport mullets and footballers can wear spray-on shorts with pride, and before tasers were invented or given to fools in uniforms.

  2. To put in it some semi context, there’s 2,000 volts that gets pumped through an electric chair. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_chair. Go figure. Great call Evo, i wonder how far this bus man is actually prepared to go to stand up to these ‘regeressions’ in society. If he had his way, Warrick Capper would be in a position of authority. Ooops, apparently he is: http://www.foxsports.com.au/story/0,8659,22374702-23211,00.html

  4. This is the Police and Nurses conspiracy…today I even walked past a bank advertising for “Police & Nurses”. Imagine, just behind those wall…

    Police: We want more tasers. But we need to taser more people to justify. How to expand the tasering audience?

    Nurses: Taser more criminals?

    Police: No good! Since we have start catching less criminals, we have less people under control to taser. Who can we taser instead?

    Nurses: Yes, i have the answer – taser the sick! That way we can help you with the workload.

    Police: No way Josie. We will not give up the next batch of tasers. We must have them to protect us in our cubicle. We are vulerable in our cubicle you know.

    Nurses: Ok ok, so….alright, why don’t we just ALL go out and get tasers then!
