Saskatchewan won't let municipal police officers use tasers, RCMP, swat teams still to use them.

Yay! But really, considering that the RCMP constitutes a big part of the police force there, it is going to make that much of a difference?

[livejournal.com profile] sabotabby posted an analysis on Friday morning's tasered teenager story over at Punk Ass Blog.

RCMP officers pinned down aboriginal teenage girl, tasered her legs and her groin area after she threw a drunken punch at an officer.

Her mother wants to know why the officers had to resort to such force when they could have walked away and left her in the locked cell.
[...]
The girl, who is a high-school student, said her wounds were painful for days. The taser broke the skin, leaving red and bloody circular marks on her thighs. The police didn't tell the girl's mother about the incident when she picked her up the next morning, and the girl was too ashamed to tell. As a result, the wounds became infected.
