BART pigs still using tasers on kids

a few days ago a BART police officer attempted to use his taser on a 13 year old who was riding away on his bicycle.
a veteran sergeant in a moving patrol car fired his Taser several days ago on a 13-year-old boy, who was fleeing from an altercation at BART's Richmond Station on a bicycle.

The darts missed the boy, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity. They said the sergeant, who has taught defensive tactics at BART, remained at work but had been removed from street duty.

how the hell can that stupid pig justify shooting a taser at a 13 year old on a bicycle?! how can BART justify allowing their cops to keep using tasers?
amnesty international found that between 2001 and 2008 at least 344 people were killed by tasers in the united states. that number is even higher today.
retraining of the use of tasers is not going to make things any better. BART police are already trained not to use tasers on fleeing suspects, yet this is exactly what happened with the 13 year old kid. BART can retrain their police force all they want, it's not going to change a thing.
