Keep Columbia Safe urging 'no' on Proposition 2

Monday, October 18, 2010 | 5:49 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — Keep Columbia Safe is urging Columbia residents to vote no on Proposition 2 in November.

Proposition 2 is the city measure that would ban Taser use by Columbia police.

According to a news release from the organization, founder Karen Taylor announced Monday that the group's advisory board voted on the position.

Keep Columbia Safe is sponsoring an event called Taser Education Forum. The forum is scheduled for 5 p.m. Oct. 27 at the Columbia Chamber of Commerce, 300 S. Providence Road. According to the news release, Boone County Sheriff Dwayne Carey will speak at the forum.

Taylor started Keep Columbia Safe after her son, Adam Taylor, was attacked in a downtown parking garage in June 2009. Taylor's petition for downtown cameras was approved by voters in April.
