I wonder if they will send the cops to tase you into cardiac arrest if you find a hack around that.
What I find darkly amusing about the latter story is that, after a cursory mention of an innocent woman brutally tased to her near death, the bulk of the article is essentially a promo piece for the manufacturers of Tasers, assuring us that tasers are really safe and wonderful. Particularly hilarious to my twisted sense of humor is this:
“It’s important to remember that more than 98,000 people have been saved from potential death or serious injury using TASER devices – an astounding number that would more than sell out the Rose Bowl.”
I am greatly consoled that 98,000 people have been tased by trigger happy cops like the guys who unnecessarily induced cardiac arrest in a woman who, it turns out, was perfectly justified in fearing them.
I fear Caesar far more than I fear some guys in a cave in Afghanistan. In this, I make common cause with the Founders of the United States, who feared the state *far* more than they feared criminals, the British, the French, the Indians or any foreign power without.
