August 25, 2014 | Tasers in Vermont



Topic: The Vermont American Civil Liberties Union – as well as disabilities rights groups, including Green Mountain Self-Advocates – lobbied lawmakers this year to make sure Tasers are not over-used and that police understand how to deal with people who have mental illnesses or other types of disabilities. On Monday, we’ll be talking with Rhonda Taylor, Robert Appel, and Allen Gilbert about the court case that is happening, as well as policy developments. We’ll also have a quick check in with GMSA about their Ally of the Year Award winner.

Guests: Max Barrows and Randy Lizotte, Green Mountain Self-Advocates
Rhonda Taylor
Robert Appel, Kohn Rath Danon & Appel, LLP
Allen Gilbert, American Civil Liberties Union of Vermont
