Do you think it is excessive force to use painful and debilitating weapons like tasers on pregnant women who are stopped for traffic violations? Well, the Supreme Court doesn't!
Use of Taser on Pregnant Woman Not Unconstitutional, Court Rules
All of these new police issued weapons are designed to completely disable you. The problem is that police are using them in situations which simply don't call for it. Don't tase me bro is one example, but they've been caught tasering people off bikes for asking questions, tasering pregnant women for complaining about a traffic ticket, and worse! By giving police a weapon other than a gun or stick to bludgeon you gives them a device which lets them treat you like cattle.
