Liberally torturing individuals who are/were only mildly threatening should be a felony. If a police officer is so cowardly that they have to taser individuals at the 1st sign of some make-believe 'non-compliance' then that officer should find a line of work that allows him a less frightening work environment.

I hope to see a large protest organized in downtown Collingwood to illustrate just how wrong these 'macho cops' are.

The town is swimming with OPP 7 days a week and they can't subdue a man without a taser.

Pathetic!

Collingwood is now on the Map of Taser Death like Vancouver after the O.P.P. killed this young man. The taser shot killed him, plain and simple. The O.P.P. officer should be charged with first degree murder and Taser International as an accessory to murder.Two other Collingwood cops beat the crap out of a woman on a jogging train near the town in the same week as the 27 year old man was tasered and murdered by the police.I was thinking about moving to Collingwood but not any more. Collingwood is like Vancouver now. Tainted by police brutality.My heart goes out to the victim and his family.Ban tasers and disband the O.P.P..Taser International is a bunch of liars.
