Taser Developing a Weapon of Mass Torture

This is not the most comforting thing to read:

But the more frightening news is this:

Di Zazzo's French company is also developing a mini-flying saucer like drone which could also fire Taser stun rounds on criminal suspects or rioting crowds. He expects it to be launched next year and to be sold internationally by Taser.

While Taser continues to insist the stun gun doesn't cause death,

There have been at least three other deaths this week in the United States after police use of the Taser.

So here we have the latest development of a weapon that has already been condemned as an instrument of torture by UN and Amnesty International, and that has been implicated in quite a number of deaths. A Taser weapon capable of electrocuting numerous people at once will no doubt facilitate further human rights abuses.
