"The premise behind the XREP is not to cause or impart physical pain, it is to cause incapacitation," spokesman Steve Tuttle said. [LINK]
The only thing more moronic than this statement would be believing it.
What Taser International calls "incapacitation" occurs at levels of "electrostimulation" (another word straight from Satan's own torture manual) that are above and beyond pain. You have go through pain, some have calculated by a 2000-to-1 ratio beyond intense pain, to get to the level of electrostimulation that can cause incapacitation. [LINK]
It would be like claiming that a flame thrower isn't intended to burn humans to a crisp, it's simply intended to make them stop resisting.
The same logic applied by Taser International would suggest that they could start making fully-lethal weapons that electro-torture the subject to death. The premise wouldn't be the sadistic torture, just the hopefully-justified killing. The painful nature of the death would be a nifty selling feature to some, but not the main premise. Twisted logic.
I wonder what these people do on the weekends for fun...
