An opposition leader in Australia, Isobel Redmond [LINK], is setting new standards for abuse of logic.
In her inexplicable bid to demonstrate that "tasers are safe", she has booked an appointment with her physician, had a complete medical check-up, and is now ready for her carefully stage-crafted, limited duration, zero repeat, probably clipped-on wires, taser hit into her back or lower torso.
She said, "It is definitely happening. I have had a check-up with my GP. I am fighting fit." [LINK]
Let me guess. The doctor paid particular attention to the idiot's heart. Probably took an EKG. Listened to the heartbeat for about a minute or more. Ms. Redmond is certainly taking every possible precaution to stay well away from the overlapping Bell Curves between her personal circumstances and the effects of the taser.
This stunt, which may actually be illegal if the laws in Australia are at all similar to the laws in Canada, provides ZERO evidence of taser safety.
In fact, the ultra-careful approach being taken by Isobel Redmond provides clear cut evidence that the claims of safety are a thin layer of cheap wall-paper plastered over the quietly acknowledged reality that tasers are dangerous weapons, and are perfectly capable of causing or contributing to death.
That someone can actually hold that opinion, as revealed by the medical check-up, while espousing other views, reveals a sad truth about some politicians.
