If you have not already come across the news yet, former Governor Madeleine Kunin has signed the online petition calling for a moratorium on the use of Tasers within Vermont (no title, just her name; petition main page, here):
86. madeleine Kunin Jul 12, 2012 burlington, VT
Six paragraphs concerning these matters are found within the top of the Notes from the Trail political news column and also features a photo of Madeleine Kunin speaking out front of the Vermont State House (most likely earlier this year), which also includes other political news as well.
A couple of key excerpts (here; behind paywall):
Former Gov. Madeleine Kunin added her name to an online petition that urges Gov. Peter Shumlin to call for an immediate moratorium on the use of Tasers by the Vermont State Police as better policies are developed.
"I think that with careful law enforcement training there are better ways to diffuse a dangerous situation," Kunin wrote in her email. "Because Tasers have become widely available, the temptation to use them is great. We need to assure that proper training in their use is always available."
Thank you if you have already signed onto the petition. It is greatly appreciated!
