(NZ) Police spy sues for mental pain

A former police informant who spied on protest groups is planning to sue police for the consequences of his decade of deception. Rob Gilchrist was outed in December 2008 after his girlfriend, animal rights and Labour activist Rochelle Rees, stumbled across police emails when he asked her to fix his computer.

Gilchrist, now in his mid-40s, was a member of many of the groups on which he reported to police. He has since suffered from depression and says his life has been threatened.

"He says, ‘Because of all this I have become mentally ill'," his lawyer Tony Ellis said in the High Court at Wellington.

This week the NZ corporate media, in concert with the NZ police, put forward a young female protester as a scapegoat for the repeated violence demonstrated by officers & security guards at the December 8 TPPA Shutdown protest at Sky City, in Auckland.

Tasers have killed at least 500 Americans

The Taser, the non-lethal law enforcement weapon that is meant to incapacitate criminals without causing great harm, has killed at least 500 people last decade. The real number of casualties might be even higher. In the period between 2001 and early 2012, the stun-gun Taser devices used by law enforcement across America have claimed the lives of 500 people.

Amnesty International, the worldwide advocacy group that condemns torture and human rights violations, delivered the news this week with a report released Wednesday. In it, they reveal that the recent death of a Georgia man who died as a result of a Taser blast puts the body count brought on by the device at 500 in barely a decades’ time.
