Bloggers Against Abuse

On September 27th, join 1,000s of bloggers around the world in BlogCatalog's Blogging for a Great Cause Challenge. This Blogging Challenge will be:

Bloggers Against Abuse
September 27th, 2007

The Outcome we are after is to be part of the largest group of bloggers to ever blog about an important cause, all on the same day. So how do you participate?
On September 27th, blog about putting an end to some sort of Abuse (you decide what kind of abuse to blog about).

In the meantime though,
* Spread the word among all the bloggers you know. Perhaps even give them a .
* If you are a graphic's designer, perhaps you can come up with some small badges announcing the event, that we can then place on our blogs. To share the badge, place it on this thread.
* List any organizations, on this thread, who are involved in putting an end to abuse.

What do you get? You will receive a link to your Blog Post from the Blogcatalog blog when we list everyone who participated. You get to use your blog for an important cause. You get to create blogging history.

Well, I don't believe that a taser would actually kill a normal person--unless that "normal" person had been previously abusing substances that would place him/her at a risk of being killed by such a low voltage.
However, I do agree with you at how "cruel" tasers can be. I didn't witness the event live (rather, it was a description that was supposed to be a "writing experiment")...but it's really saddening that a person who did not violate any laws of any sort would be tasered like that...and in front of a Presidential candidate and a public audience at that!

Anyways, I'd like to thank you for sharing the "Bloggers Against Abuse" challenge--it looks quite interesting. Perhaps I might participate as well. Thanks for commenting (:

1 Over here they said the voltage would at 50.000, as much as I remember. However, voltage of any kind affects the rythm of the heart.
2 Those arrows have barbed hooks: These things are not even used for animals, anymore.
3 You say, that people, who use substances ... however: Did you already hear, that 80% percent of the Western Society cannot be called healthy? Not everybody is sporting daily or thrice a week, depressions are called a common illness (don´t know the term in English) and all these people have to take medication. Let me say it the other way round: Do you know people, who are "top fit" and take no medications among the average population?
3 To me it is a nowadays kind of torture, in result people will say - as it always was, in early times, too - what they are told to say.
4 Finally, it is a matter of humanity, persuasiveness, reasoning and ability to assert.
