Woman shot by police finally subdued by TASER

According to reports from The Reno Review-Journal, police responded to 911 calls at an apartment complex in Reno on April 1, 2008 due to a woman threatening another woman with a baseball bat. When an officer arrived, neighbors told police that the woman was previously fighting with a man and then turned on another woman who was defending the man.
When the police found the woman, she was carrying a bat and was ordered to get on the ground. The woman did not comply with the officers' request and started to approach a resident. An officer then shot the woman in the lower leg. When the gunshot did not stop the woman, the officers deployed a TASER(r) electronic control device.
"After being shot, the suspect then got to her feet again, at which point she continued her attack, at which time he was tasered by other officers. The woman was subdued after being hit by TASER (ECDs)," said Reno police Sgt. Randy Riverton.

Robin Steele Completes TASER Master Instructor Training

As part of a multi-faceted personal and professional sabbatical that took me to the four corners of the world, I recently attended The TASER® Training Academy in Scottsdale, AZ. After taking the TASER M26 & X26 User Course, I went on to take the TASER M26 & X26 Instructor Course. Once completed, I reenrolled and completed both the TASER Advanced Instructor and The Master Instructor. It was fascinating, invigorating with an unbelievably knowledgeable and engaging instructional staff (thanks, guys). I had the chance to sit in on an Armorer’s Course
and even assisted on a forensic investigation following a TASER device discharge.

TASER® Training Academy provides training on the use of TASER electronic control devices and other forms of non-lethal force. Training is geared toward law enforcement officers, and correctional officers, but there's plenty on self-defense and personal use. Force options and decision making, medical issues, weapon maintenance, reporting and personal safety are also covered in the offered courses.

I even got TASERED! If you ever get the chance, definitely go to TASER academy. The life you save may be your own... or your family's.

In recent weeks, several reckless and irresponsible individuals who disagree with my men's rights and peace advocacy have tried to silence me through a campaign of personal threats and intimidation. They have attempted to determine where I live and where I work in order to attack me both personally and professionally. Every citizen should be outraged that such hateful thuggery and disdain for the 1st Amendment exists in 21st century America.

With no more rationale than a common name and a belief that I'm a CA attorney, these individuals have come to the mistaken conclusion that I am Robin Steele, VP & General Counsel of the Brisbane, CA-based Intermune, Inc., publicly traded biotechnology company. While I am flattered to be mistaken for a woman of her stature and accomplishment, I am not Intermune VP Robin Steele, Esq. I do not have nor have ever had any affiliation with VP Robin Steele, Esq. or with her employer, InterMune, Inc.

I am in communication with Intermune SVP, General Counsel, who has assured me that Intermune, Inc. will take all necessary steps to protect their employee’s reputation and personal safety. Individuals, forum and blog publishers would be well advised to remove all inferences to Intermune and to Intermune VP Robin Steele being associated with this blog or its publisher.

Thanks to all who support human rights, peaceful activism and freedom of speech.


Robin Steele,

One of the barriers to making progress in men's rights legislation is the negative stereotype of men as having less interest and/or less importance in their parenting role.

Decades of campaigning, advocacy and advertising on behalf of abused women and against "deadbeat dads" has compounded the stereotype, and done a disserve both to the majority of fathers who want active, positive and nurturing relationships with their children, and their sons and daughters who need the love and support of both parents.

Help Promote Fathers' Rights
In order to help counteract the negative stereotypes, and to honor the great numbers of fathers who are battling to build and maintain positive relationships with their children, Robin Steele is creating and distributing a series of digital posters that communicate the vital message that Children Need Fathers.
These images are available to all who are interested in promoting a positive image and message about the importance of father's involvement in their children's lives. If you would like to support men's rights by posting these messages on your blogs, websites and forums with a link back to the campaign homepage, please let me know if you are interested in joining or supporting the campaign by emailing me at Include a link to your blog or webpage so that I can help share the word.
There are sixteen posters created thus far, which will be made available in the coming weeks, and posted for use under Creative Commons licensing.
Any input on ways to increase the effectiveness and reach of this campaign is welcome and appreciated.

Here are some of the preliminary poster graphics.Right click to download any image. Click on any poster to enlarge:


Thanks you for supporting men's rights and the Children Need Fathers campaign.

Prayers for a Blessed New Year

We are blessed with the continuous gifts of days and nights, of seasons and years, a universe of suns and moons and planets whose rotations create a continuous series of new beginnings.

To me, one of God's great gifts to us is the continuous series of new beginnings he provides. Each new year, each new season, the dawn of each new day bring with them the opportunities for change, opportunities to reinvent ourselves as better fathers and mothers, better sons and daughters, better friends, kinder neighbors, more responsible citizens, and truer, more devout servants of the Lord and bearers of His message of peace and hope for all.

The Lord sent his only Son not only to die for our sins, but to show us how to live. How to suffer. How to die. While his spirit was challenged and his body was broken, he never stopped speaking the truth. He never compromised his message nor abided evil because it was more comfortable to do so. While there were times he expressed anger, he never stopped loving his enemies, and never gave up hope that they would one day redeem themselves, and so be redeemed. He never stopped preaching that we should love one another, that we should treat others with kindness even when he himself was treated with unkindness.

Even when he was mocked, reviled and nailed to a cross, Jesus did not resort to hate, to violence or to resentment. He taught us that hate leads only to despair, but that love, peace and forgiveness lead to hope, happiness and the promise of everlasting life.

Happy New Year, and blessings for a new beginning, from Robin Steele.

God said: "Let there be lights in the dome of the sky, to separate day from night. Let them mark the fixed times, the days and the years, and serve as luminaries in the dome of the sky, to shed light upon the earth." And so it happened: God made the two great lights, the greater one to govern the day, and the lesser one to govern the night; and he made the stars. God set them in the dome of the sky, to shed light upon the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. God saw how good it was. Evening came, and morning followed...

(Genesis 1:14-19)

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace: where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.

—St. Francis of Assisi
