In preparation for the June 24th Workshop dedicated to discussing the FPD's Use of Force Policies and Training efforts, please submit your questions. 

For reference: View FPD Reports and Policies

In 2008 a partially-deaf young black man named Jarrel Gray was killed after Rudy Torres tased him twice, including once when he was already on the ground. Why are we still allowing our police to use these deadly weapons 12 years later when we know they can be fatal? How many deaths will it take before their use is discontinued?

Seconded! This case is important to talk about anyway when discussing police brutality. When reading the news article I saw that the police officer used his taser only 15 seconds after getting out of his car. It was totally unnecessary for him to use his taser, or any force.
