Keep Tasers Out of Portland!

Incoming Portland police Chief James Craig wants to arm the Portland Police Department with Tasers:

Despite the manufacturers label of non lethal Tasers have been involved in 375+ deaths
Tasers have a long history of abuse by law enforcement including subjecting targets to multiple shocks, while in restraints, and against individuals posing no physical threat - for verbal non-compliance

The U.N Committee Against Torture has declared Taser use " a form of torture "
