Ah, the quality of the taser training shines through (like a beacon of stupidity)...
EAST BANK, W.Va. — ...18-year-old (pregnant) Candice White told the Council she was sitting on her porch when Sgt. Steve Smith, a Kanawha County police officer who is a friend of her mother, showed up and began playing around with the taser. White says Smith used it on her leg several times. Smith told the Council White had asked him to use the taser on her and that the power setting was very low. An East Bank volunteer firefighter also told the Council that Smith used the taser on him because it was his birthday. [LINK]
Morons... ...and apparently ineffective training.
Now, note the phrase "...the power setting was very low..."
Do the tasers offer a power selection with a "very low" setting? I don't recall seeing any such setting mentioned in the product information that I've seen.
Please send your pointers to any such "power setting" to the blog e-mail. Thanks.
