Today, Wednesday July 30th 2008, black bloggers and other interested bloggers from across America are holding “A Day of Blogging for Justice – Blogging Against Extra-Judicial Electrocution (Tasers).”
The blog Tasered While Black has been tracking the issue of black folks being tased for some time now. Amy Goodman of Democracy Now is tracking the death by taser of a black man in Louisiana. We are blogging today against police and other security entities across America, Canada and around the world involved in Extra-Judicial Electrocution by Tasers. African American Political Pundit has called it a campaign against “on the spot pre-trial electrocution” of members of the public (many who are of African descent).
