This will keep them busy...
"A spokesperson with the Stark County Jail tells Fox 8 News that a part-time police officer has been charged for allegedly abusing his girlfriend's young children with a weapon similar to a Taser." [LINK]
Apparently, the device was not actually a Taser brand taser.
But I wonder if he was trained within the Taser International training and certification scheme? Hey, I'm just asking....
UPDATE: Fox updated the headline to "Taser-like". LOL.
Note: The entire point of this post is the "Taser" versus "Taser-like", which is why the post title includes the disclaimer "(sic)".
UPDATE: Hey! Here's another one!
"Police Officer Accused Of Using Taser On Girlfriend's Kids" (sic)
Here, I'll be nice and provide a [LINK].
Don't blame them for the error. They see electo-torture evil and they just naturally think: "Taser". It's an establish characteristic of the brand name. Sort of like as with "Nazi", "Satan", that sort of thing.
Maybe it's time for a rebranding exercise.
