Video of Vancouver Police Tasering Man Released

Another Meaningless Taser Death: Police Use Of Stun Guns Out Of Control
Confused? Distressed? Need Help? Get tasered

The latest taser incident to be captured on film again highlights how fast our society is sleepwalking into a brutal police state where it is the norm for cops to react with extreme physical force and even torture towards anyone who acts out of the ordinary in any way whatsoever.

The video, released Wednesday, shows the brutal tasering and consequent death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski last month at Vancouver airport.

Captured by a member of public, the footage shows the moments before police arrived and murdered Dziekanski by tasering him three or four times.

The film quite clearly reveals that Mr Dziekanski is suffering some sort of anxiety attack in the airport as he is breathing very heavily, sweating profusely and appears to be attempting to barricade himself in an empty area separated by a glass cordon. Clearly the barricade he fashions is not going to stop anyone getting through and appears to be more a cry for help.

Dziekanski at first seems to respond to passers by who attempt to calm him down but he clearly cannot understand what they are saying and becomes more distressed. After throwing a wooden table at the glass cordon and knocking a computer to the floor, the police arrive and within seconds taser Dziekanski sending him flailing to the ground screaming in agony.

The police then surround him and as the officers yell at Dziekanski to stop moving, which is impossible when 50,000 volts of electricity are moving through your body, a voice can be heard yelling “hit him again, hit him again.” The four large officers then jump on top of him, restraining his arms and sitting on his head. One officer appears to strike Dziekanski in the head with a baton.

Eventually Dziekanski stops moving and dies.

Is this in any way justifiable whatsoever?

The video also contradicts the officers’ report which states that the man they encountered was out of control. Police also said even after he was tasered once, he remained combative. But the video shows that after the first shot, Dziekanski fell to the ground and was writhing in agony.

An investigation is ongoing and the official cause of death has not been made public.

The fact that police immediately reach for tasers now in any delicate situation, even a non threatening one, speaks volumes about the society we now live in.

In another disgusting case reported today a man who slipped into a diabetic coma on the top deck of a bus in Leeds, England has described how he was used for electric stun gun “target practice” after he “failed to respond to instructions” and police “mistook him for a suicide bomber”.

Sorry, two times for non-armed man. You think a man from the Eastern Europe is “non valued”? Guys, you have a lot of nationalistic complexes in “not yours” land.

This is a disgrace not only for RCMP but also for Canada. All 4 Officers have to be removed from the force and charged with manslaughter/murder of and innocent and powerless immigrant. This is a clear example of abuse of authority and power and Canadaians can not tolerate abuse of power in such a fashion.

Dear canadian people, I know you are kind, most cool guys. Just DO SOMETHING, be DOERS, freedom always was about screming and fighting against these things. SCREAM AT LEAST ! This is incredible COMUNIST LIKE APPROACH.

I am ashamed to call myself a Canadian citizen after such a horrific event took place. As a Polish immigrant, living in Canada for twenty five years, it makes me question the supposed “hand of friendhsip” philosophy that Canadians say they have. As a child I remeber soldiers taking my mother away when martial law was instituted in Poland. GOOD JOB Canada – feel proud that you have joined an elite group of thugs and criminals. The first and last experience this man had as a visitor to this country was to be treated with cold disregard and finally killed like an animal. Perhaps your image as a friendly, open and caring people needs to be re-evaluated. Take a long hard look at yourselves – you are disgusting.
