Scrutiny, Tasers and Blog TV.

St Saviour Deputy Jeremy Macon is the confirmed guest for tomorrow night's live and interactive Blog TV broadcast. Deputy Macon is the Chairman of Education and Home Affairs Scrutiny Panel who are currently looking into the idea of our Police Service being issued with Taser Guns.

The Scrutiny Panel has received, we are told, in excess of 400 written submissions from the public on this subject and we hope to get some early indications as to how the public view the idea of the Police Force being issued with these weapons.

We will also be discussing the role of Scrutiny, its effectiveness, its successes and failures and plenty more.

The live and interactive broadcast will start at 7pm (BST) tomorrow Thursday 10th May and will be up to an hour in duration. If you have any questions/observations/comments you would like to make then come and join the discussion HERE.


  1. Will Thursday be a regular time slot now with no Sunday show?

  2. Thursday's at 7pm will be the regular slot to start with. There will be the occasional extra broadcasts.


    The answer to your question is no it isn't true.

  3. Outrage as police repeatedly TASER terrified Alzheimer's sufferer in front of his wife because he didn't want to go into care - then tie him up in his living room

    Ask Deputy Macon about this story.

  4. Actually I've got to hold a hand up and defend the police on this one.

    My father had diagnosed Alzheimers for 5 years. Alzheimers is different from "normal" dementia as there is a degree of violence within the victim's altered nature caused by the confusion.

    The last time I saw my father was when I carried him to bed pleading, kicking and screaming as he didn't want to go. I had to prise his clenched hands from around the door architrave to get him into bed. Like I wrote, I never saw him alive again.

    There are no "winners" in this story. Just an horrific incident for all concerned.
