As subtle as a flying brick.

Double parking? Double taser.

A 68 year old. 145 lb. man with a neurological condition was tasered by Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers following a dispute over double parking. The man was picking up his wife, who was delivering newspapers. This happened less than a month after the RCMP tasered a Polish man who had spent 10 frustrating hours trying to find his mother in the Vancouver International Airport following 15 hours of travel. He died on the scene.
When the first man’s wife told the RCMP officers of her husband’s neurological condition, the officer told her, “We don’t have to know about people’s medical conditions.” The Polish man who died was tasered 24 seconds after meeting the RCMP officers. He did not speak English.
