Description

CBC obtained more than 4,000 Taser-use reports from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), created a database to analyze data and found that the RCMP's taser use was on the rise. The stories highlighted the recurrence of similar themes: abuse of force; a weapon increasingly used on vulnerable people; a pattern of multiple firings of the stun gun on a suspect when police regulations call for minimal use; and Canada's national police force, the largest in Canada, bent on suppressing data detailing how its officers use the weapons.
