Tasers for pussies

Mounties to carry lower-voltage Taser

Manitoba Mounties will be carrying a new Taser that has a lower voltage and can electronically store the duration of the shock administered.

Pffft. Sure, a couple of people die, and all of a sudden the RCMP in Manitoba are going to start packing a kinder, gentler taser gun. In this weather, if you're going taser a coked-up freak-job wearing a parka, you're gonna need all the juice you can get.

Now this is a little better:

Coming soon to a police force near you: the Taser shotgun, capable of firing a debilitating electronic zap from 20 metres – twice the reach of current 50,000-volt stun guns. (link)
But still not good enough.

NOW we're talking! :
