TASER TASER TASER – Sign Up Now for These Official SFPD TASER Meetings – TASER TASER TASER

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

The cops can’t say TASER, but I can: TASER TASER TASER. (I can also say band aid and realtor.)

There are only 100 seats, so these free meetings will sell out, and maybe the first one already has, but IDK because I can’t get to the evite page. But you can, Gentle Reader, I’m sure of it. You’re very clever.

 “Community Input on CEDs (Conducted Energy Device)
Tue, Sep 12, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, 99 Grove Street, San Francisco, CA
The San Francisco Police Commission along with the SFPD and with the facilitation support of the Human Right’s Commission is inviting community members to weigh in, ask questions, share perspectives and voice concerns about whether CEDs (Conducted Energy Devices, also known as Tasers) should be considered as a force option for the Police Department. The meetings are also a platform to provide input on the draft policy (http://sanfranciscopolice.org/sites/default/files/Documents/PoliceCommission/police-commission-CED%20policy%20draft%20dated%2008%3A25%3A17%20%28%22clean%20version%29.pdf) to be presented for discussion at a future Police Commission meeting. We will have two meetings. First meeting is: Tuesday, September 12, 2017, 6pm- 8 pm @Bill Graham Auditorium, 99 Grove (http:/ /evite .me/kS846TMa7q) Because of the capacity limitations of this space, we ask those interested to register via Evite. For safety, we are limited to 100 attendees and will accept comments, feedback, questions and concerns by email sfpd.commission@sfgov.org or via the Commission’s Facebook and/or Twitter.

All the deets, in pdf format:

Spot the former SF Police Commish who did a 180 on “Conducted Energy Devices” a while back. I think he was the critical vote.

And in the meantime, Frisco still has TASERs all over, they’re just not being used by the SFPD. Think of different LEOs what operate here, some in large numbers:
