I'll Have Mine Medium Well...

My CHEST HAIR that is!

So apparently its no big deal to taser someone in custody to help change their mind about exercising their right to refuse a mouthswab. I dont know what it is, but upstate New York has gotten scary.

-First, it was talk about instituting martial law because of rogue police.
-Then, there was talk about registering every single bullet sold in the county.
-Now, according to the court ruling, its o.k. to use a thompson a swift electric rifle to get someone to submit, by using the "drive stun" setting.

Wiki says of drive stun:
Some Taser models, particularly those used by police departments, also have a "Drive Stun" capability, where the Taser is held against the target without firing the projectiles, and is intended to cause pain without incapacitating the target. "Drive Stun" is "the process of using the EMD weapon [Taser] as a pain compliance technique.

But hey, dont take my word for it...tell em about the latest trampling of the constitution Mrs. Holmes...

Move along, nothing to see here, move along...
