At the barrel of a gun

(Via the Drudge Report)

A decision by Falls Police to use a Taser to obtain a DNA sample from a suspect in an armed robbery, shooting and kidnapping is not unconstitutional.

OK, they guy is likely not a choir boy--I get that. But we're being told that imprisonment at Guantanamo is torture and this isn't? The Taser isn't a non-leathal weapon--it's a "less lethal" weapon. (Think what you may of the tone of that organization, every death is documented.)

Orwell said in 1984, "If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face— forever." He was just a bit early on his timing.
