In order to dramaticize the effects of stun weapons, the Caltech/Pasadena
chapter of Amnesty International marched in the Doo-Dah parade on November
21, 1999. Dressed in paper mache masks and fuzzy tails, the activists transformed
into Amnesty Group 22's alter ego, ``Animals for the Ethical Treatment
of People.'' As they marched through Pasadena's Old Town, human characters
shocked each other while the animals showed their amazement at the people's
like of respect for ``human'' rights. The marchers were clearly clearly
having a good time as they took a break from the usually sombre work of
protecting human rights. At the same time they were conveying a serious
message.. Abuse of stun weapons can and does occur. Accountability on the
part of our agents of law enforcement and judicial must be improved.
Take a look at the 1998 and 2005 parades, too.
the animals save her by trapping the evil guard.
The real cops seem to be enjoying the show.
