A certain Stephen Palmer is (was?) the (former?) Executive Director of (what once was?) the Canadian Police Research Centre [LINK] (a.k.a. CPRI, a.k.a. CITIG [LINK]).
The CPRC basically tasered themselves to death. They were (in my opinion) seduced by the slick talking stungun salesmen [LINK], got way too involved with defending the safety of tasers [LINK], and then they appear to have had their chain yanked (hard) [LINK], and appear to have been shut down [LINK].
And now, tragically, Stephen Palmer has been tasered and died.

Of course, it's not (as far as we know) the same Stephen Palmer. But still... ...the irony. Seriously, you really couldn't make this sh_t up.
