When Tasers first came out they were billed as a non-lethal alternative to firearms.
In reality, both parts of that claim were false. People have died from Taser shocks, and far from being an "alternative" to firearms, most police Taser discharges

The state’s highest court will take up Mr. Baxter’s

Robert S. Schindler, Sr., of Gulfport, Florida, father of the late Terri Schindler Schiavo, passed away August 29, 2009 from heart failure at Northside Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Robert fought valiantly to save the life of his brain–injured daughter Terri in the landmark right to life case that culminated in her imposed death by court–ordered starvation and thirst on March 31, 2005.

Having lived 40 years longer then his victim Mary Jo Kopechne - Fat TED is at long last DEAD!
Forty years ago July 18, 1969, a likely drunk Senator Ted Kennedy drove his car off a Chappaquiddick Island bridge with 28-year old Mary Jo Kopechne in the passenger seat next to him. More than nine hours later, after sleeping it off in his hotel, Kennedy reported the accident at the nearby police station and divers soon pulled Kopechne’s lifeless body from the 8-foot deep pond.
Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, the liberal lion of the Senate admitted Socialist dies of
a brain tumor. He was 77.
No true patriot will honor this man,now lets see who does and remember who they are in the next election.
On September 11, 2003, I was introduced to Robert Novak at a Goldwater Institute luncheon.
I had been discussing Novak's Valerie Plame column in which he had
described her as a "CIA operative," on The Charles Goyette Show since
its first appearance in July. I felt that the implications of Novak's
column were serious - that it had the fingerprints of the Bush
administration attempting to discredit Joe Wilson, a critic of the Iraq
war - and that it was not getting the kind of media attention it
deserved -- not unlike the Downing Street memos.

At the age of 92 and responsible for steering the entire planet (especially the North American part) into any direction he was told; "Uncle Walter" finally gives up the ghost! As a 'journalist', or rather government-owned mouth piece he was extrodinarilly gifted at convincing the populace that whatever he said, was fact. This was usually supported by partial truth (BEFORE THE INTERNET) and was stamped with his "and that's the way that it is" signature sign off.

The report of the National Transportation Safety Board came out on August
8, 2000, 13 months after the plane crash of JFK Jr. There are many contradictions.
For example, the L.A. Times reported “The
accident that killed Kennedy was caused by an inexperienced pilot …the
NTSB concluded in its final report” (LA TIMES, 7/7/00, p 1). In fact,
the NTSB report shows that Kennedy was highly experienced (he had more
than enough hours for an instructor’s license), he was described by his
trainers as “excellent”, “methodical”, and “very cautious.” (NTSB
report, page3) The media
say the visibility was poor. But
the NTSB quotes the Tower manager at Martha’s Vineyard, where the plane
went down, saying that there were “stars out” and visibility was “between
10 and 12 miles” (NTSB report,
