Friday, November 3 marked the fifth vote on “conducted energy devices” in the last decade and a half, and perhaps the most contentious — met with large-scale protests from our chapter, the Frisco 500, Coalition on Homelessness, Do No Harm Coalition, and many more.

After 7 hours of protest, public comment that was overwhelmingly against the adoption of tasers, and a series of underhanded bureaucratic action, the police commission voted against the will of the community to give SFPD tasers.
