Lebo: A Tale of the Taser

Mt. Lebanon residents energized and angered over last summer's Taser incident have assembled a website where citizens can record and share experiences dealing with the Mt. Lebanon Police Department. My co-blogger at BlogLebo, Jo, posted the link today.

The site is at MLCop.com, which both offers citizens (Lebo residents and non-residents alike) a place to post descriptions of their encounters with local officers, and also reports on efforts to engage the Police Department and the Mt. Lebanon Commission in dialogue regarding policies on Taser use. Regrettably, Mt. Lebanon has joined the list of cities refusing to disclose its policy. Policies in many cities, including some with much more crime than Mt. Lebanon, and much more violent crime, are available online.
