Shocked Into Line

ello all ...
The Taser, the new
toy-of-control for the heavies-in-uniform, is
the latest in the long line of 'supposed to
bees' imposed by government.
The Taser is supposed tobe a 'non-lethal' weapon, but the deaths
continue to mount. It is supposed to be
used only on those who physically threaten
police or public, but it is being used in
response to the most minor lack of cooperation.
Of course, supposed to
bees are for public consumption only, as
with legislation that is only supposed to be
used against 'terrorists' when it is actually
aimed at the general population.
It was always known that the
Taser had the potential to kill. It is stating
the obvious to say that the body's electrical
system is rather crucial to it staying alive and
when that system is short-circuited the
consequences can clearly be lethal. The Taser
unleashes 50,000 volts of electricity to 'jam
the nervous system' of the target in the way
And they didn't know it had
the potential to kill? Even Taser International,
the weapon's inventor, admits:
'Taser technology is
free, but independent medical and
scientific experts have determined that
when used properly, Taser technology is among
the most effective use-of-force interventions
available to law enforcement.' (My
What utter baloney. 'Most
effective' use-of-force simply means that it
works in controlling people. Smacking them
around the head with a baseball bat would also
be extremely 'effective' in achieving the same
end. It doesn't make it right.
Even when 'used properly' the
Taser shocks the victim with 50,000 volts of
electricity, never mind the repeated doses
inflicted by some of the goons caught on video
(put Taser into YouTube or Google Video).
People with heart problems, including
pacemakers, are at even greater risk and how do
police officers know the state of health of
those they attack with what a UN committee has
dubbed 'a form of torture'?
The Taser-peddlers employ
misleading propaganda like this: 'In healthy
subjects, exposure to a 5-second electrical
discharge from a Taser does not result in any
significant changes that indicate increased
physiologic stress ...' So if you get hit by a
Taser and die it's your fault because you
weren't healthy enough.
Police with taser
Stories of people dying after
being Tasered are coming almost by the week at
the moment and Amnesty International suggests
that well in excess of 200 people have died so
far. As its use increases so, obviously, will
the deaths. And the use is increasing as
original guidelines are relaxed - exactly as
they were always planned to be.
In the UK, Tasers could only
be used by 'specialist officers' as an
alternative to bullets, but now they can be used
against anyone the police decide is 'potentially
violent', even when they are unarmed.
But Taser use goes much
further. People in handcuffs, pregnant women,
the old and the young, are now fair-game for
these morons. One innocent deaf guy was Tasered
by Wichita Police who forced their way into his
home after a false alarm about a shooting. He
kept saying 'I can't hear! I can't hear!', but
they hit him with the Taser for 'refusing to
obey their commands'. A British man was Tasered
twice by another idiot while he lay in a
diabetic coma, and see this example at Sheffield
Lake in the United States involving a woman who
was no physical threat to the officers.

Invariably, even the most
extreme use of the Taser is defended by
superiors to protect the credibility of the
weapon. A Polish immigrant can be seen on video
being Tasered to his death at Vancouver Airport
recently when he was no threat to the three big
'brave' officers who dealt with him.
The lawyer for Robert
Dziekanski's family said he had been in touch
with witnesses and viewed the video of the
incident taken by an onlooker and it appeared
that the interaction between the police and
Dziekanski, who could not speak English, lasted
just 24 seconds before the Taser was used.
These three frail little policemen could not
restrain this Polish man without use of the
Taser that ended his life. Poor dears
Many police forces can even
use the Taser on children and they are doing so,
as we saw with the case of the nine-year-old
girl at an Arizona school for special needs
children. The girl was already handcuffed when a
'veteran officer' used the Taser on her. 'It
didn't involve an integrity issue,' his superior
said, 'The officer made a decision to do what he
thought he needed to do'. How can it involve
integrity when you don't have any?
In the UK it is quite legal
to use the Taser on children even though the
government's own Defence Scientific Advisory
Council medical committee has said that not
enough is known about the health risks of using
the weapon on children. The committee, which is
made up of 'independent' scientists and doctors,
said that limited research suggested there was a
risk children could suffer 'a serious cardiac
The committee recommended
that officers should be 'particularly vigilant'
for any adverse response from Taser victims and
asked for guidelines to be changed to 'identify
children and adults of small stature' as being
at potentially greater risk from the cardiac
effects of what are claimed to be non-lethal
The manufacturers have
refused to accept that any death anywhere has
been caused by its products because being hit by
a Taser and then dying does not, apparently,
constitute a connection. What claptrap.
So point number one: They
knew it could, indeed would, kill people.
This 'non-lethal' -
potentially lethal - weapon has been handed out
to police officers in many countries with the
aim of having it available to all officers
everywhere. Now, what do you need to be a police
officer? Intelligence? No, clearly not from the
many I have met around the world. Some of the
most mentally-challenged people I have come
across have had badges on their caps.
All you need to become a
police officer is to be accepted and selected by
those in authority. Er, that's it. Thus, police
forces worldwide are peopled to a highly
significant extent by the stupid, corrupt,
psychopathic and emotionally crippled (see
Louisiana, I rest my case).
Louisiana police - latest picture
In among them you do have the
genuine, decent police officers who do have a
brain in working order and do have a sense of
duty and proportion. But here's the rub.
Both the sensible and decent and the stupid,
corrupt, psychopathic and emotional cripples are
being issued with Tasers.
The uniform professions are
magnets for the emotionally undeveloped - those
who lack inner-security and therefore need to
find it 'out there'. Many such people pursue
their need for external security through the
entertainment industry where audiences and fame
provide their 'Your wonderful' fix.
This is why so many famous
'celebrities' find it impossible to cope with
failure or their careers in decline because
their sense of security, of who they are, also
declines in proportion to their celebrity.
The darker side of
insecurity, however, can often be found in
uniform because this expression of what a
therapist might call 'negative self-identity'
seeks to find cover in having power over others.
Secure people don't wish to control anyone
because they are at peace with themselves and
the flow of life. It is the insecure that
need to control everything and everyone because
life to them is akin to a baby lost in the dark.
Having control, or having the appearance of it,
is where they get their security.
These are the sort of people,
the John Wayne wannabes, who are trigger-happy
with the Taser when they are in no way
threatened by the target. As we can see from the
video evidence, the Taser comes out when orders
are merely being questioned or ignored. Or, in
the minds of the officers, their sense of
security is being threatened.
They are so desperate to
always be in control, always be obeyed, that
their heads go when someone has the audacity not
to do exactly what they say. What is going
through their insecurity-filter is 'How dare
you disobey me?' Arrogance is always a cover
for lack of self-esteem.
In the past the most they
could do was force the handcuffs on, call for
back-up, or accept that the member of the public
had a right to his or her opinion and the right
to question the officer's actions. Now, with
increasing frequency, out comes the Taser.
'The use of TaserX26 weapons, provoking extreme
pain, constituted a form of torture, and ...
in certain cases it could also cause death ...'
- UN Committee report
Take the level of insecurity
to even greater extremes and you find the mental
and emotional territory of the psychopaths.
These require total control over their
victims to mask the terrified little boy that
dwells within and these are the people who find
pleasure in inflicting terror and torture on
others. Many end up in the military, where they
have whole training programmes to produce them,
and some opt for the police. It is all about
being in control - to feel they have complete
power over others.
Then there are those whose
fear is much closer to the surface, the ones who
panic easy and, for that reason, shoot first and
consider the consequences later. There is no
better example of this than the London police
'marksman' who shot an innocent Brazilian
electrician seven times in the head from point
blank range while his fellow officers held the
guy on the floor. Was he still a 'threat' after
The last people who should
have access to guns and Tasers are those who
have a 'John Wayne' complex to mask their
insecurity; psychopaths; and panicky people who
are not up to the job.
Now, here's a fact: Police
forces across the world are awash with all three
and they have been given the power to shoot
people with 50,000 volts whenever they think it
'appropriate'. The police state isn't coming,
So point number two: They
knew that the Taser would be abused, or not
'used properly', just as they knew it could
Why would a company and its
governmental clients introduce a 'non-lethal'
weapon that they knew could kill and would be
abused by the many numbskull officers that they
This is where the coordinates
come in. If your coordinate on life is that the
authorities are there to serve the people and
protect them from harm you will have one of two
main responses to the Taser and the countless
cases of misuse that are coming to light. One
will be that if people don't want to get Tasered
they should do as they're told; and the other is
that the authorities have been incompetent and
made a 'mistake' with its introduction.
If, however, your reality
coordinate is that the main objective of
government is to control and dictate to the
population you will see that this has nothing to
do with incompetence and 'mistakes'. You will
also see that the Taser is being introduced in
country after country through the same global
network that controls country after country.
What we're seeing, literally
every day, is the building of the global prison
that they want in place a few short years from
now, and key to that is the suppression of those
who have realised, to a greater or lesser
extent, what is going on.
Introducing laws to stop
'terrorism' that can be equally applied to those
who question, expose or challenge government is
a massive part of this structure of suppression.
So are the surveillance cameras, the spying
free-for-all, ID cards and microchips in people,
vehicles and products.
Also in this malevolent mix
is the Taser and its even more horrific
successors already being prepared for use, like
the Taser XREP with a range of 100 feet. Its
Neuro-Muscular Incapacitation, or 'NMI', can be
delivered by a shotgun at 300 feet per second to
embed itself in the victim's body and
electro-shock them for 20 seconds.
The Taser XREP
The prime role of Taser
technology is the same as the electric shocks
that mice receive in laboratory behaviour-control
experiments. The mice are shocked each time they
try to enter certain channels and eventually
they stop trying. The fear of being
shocked is enough to control them and that's the
real role of the Taser.
The videos of people being
Tasered, and the stories of those who die, are
no problem for those in real authority.
They want people to see this because it
is saying ... 'Look what will happen to you if
you don't obey'. An article I saw about the
Taser XREP included this line from the writer:
'We'll behave ourselves, officer, but please,
just point that thing somewhere else'.
That's exactly the mentality
that the Taser is designed to instil.
Those who are knowingly
imposing the global fascist dictatorship are
terrified that vast numbers of people will wake
up to their game and they are preparing the
ground not only for individuals, but great
gatherings of people to be controlled by Taser
They are producing Tasers to
defend whole areas, like the Orwellian 'Taser
Remote Area Denial' (TRAD) system. The Taser
International website tells us that the 'true
power of TASERNET can be realized when TRAD
modules are installed in a networked security
solution' (Lots of them together). This, it
goes on, is ...
... 'Ideal for protecting
high value facilities or operations such as
checkpoints, command centers, depots, aircraft
insertions, and spec-ops, as well as fixed
installations such as embassies, airfields,
utility facilities, pipelines, etc. TASERNET
provides the user the capabilities of visual
observation and oversight coupled with the
ability to engage and incapacitate targets
This, and even bigger
versions, would also be ideal for stopping
protests and mass gatherings of people who come
together to challenge the dictatorship. Let us
have no illusions that this is a key reason for
Despite all the deaths and
the abuse of the Taser, the UK Home Secretary,
the lightweight of lightweights, Jacqui Smith,
sang from her songsheet and said she could 'see
the day' when the Taser was carried by every
police officer alongside their batons and
That was always the plan by
the Shadow People behind world events and that's
why the Taser 'trials' were always going to
become the 'norm' no matter what the people want
or how many are killed and hurt. It is also why
the Home Secretaries and governments come and
go, but the Taser agenda is pushed by all of
It shows how far we have come
down the Orwellian road that the Taser.co.uk
website can say that the Taser is a 'proven
solution for stopping violence'. Hitting another
human being with 50,000 volts of electricity is
considered to be 'stopping violence'. Ahh, but
you see the authorities are never violent, even
when they are pepper-bombing cities.
Only the people are
violent. The authorities merely employ the 'use
