Land of the Fried, Home of the Tased
Will Grigg came across this story of Florida prison employees using stun guns on over 40 children. These "demonstrations" were conducted on a "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day".
No criminal charges have been filed, and although the matter was "reported" to the Florida Department of Children and Families, the child-snatchers -- who are usually inclined to seize children on any available pretext -- don't appear particularly interested in this case.
Cops in this country absolutely love their hand-held electrocution toys. It's almost as if they're competing with each other to find pretexts to burn the "little people" (Bladerunner slang for non-cops). The problem is not the technology; the problem is that cops are now above the law, and they know it.
