On Wednesday July 30th 2008, black bloggers and other interested bloggers from across America, Canada and around the world held "A Day of Blogging for Justice - Blogging Against Extra-Judicial Electrocution" with Tasers We are now making this a national campaign that will last beyond today. We are asking bloggers of all colors and backgrounds to join us by placing a widget on your blog or website.
The blog Tasered While Black has been tracking the issue of black folks being tased for some time now. We are blogging today against police and other security entities across America, Canada and around the world involved in Extra-Judicial Electrocution by Tasers.
We want to give you and other members of the general public, awareness on the issue of taser abuse by police. It's important that the general public understand the 'use of force continuum' used by law enforcement officials, and how it is abused by many in the law enforcement community. (See the use-of-force-continuum provided by Villager at Electronic Village) Although there is a Justice Department Review of TASER-related Deaths the on-the-spot pre-trial electrocutions continue.
Here is a partial list of bloggers involved in "A Day of Blogging for Justice - Blogging Against Extra-Judicial Electrocution (Tasers)"
Note: This list will be regularly updated during the day.
