the tazer guns actually have barbed hooks on them that fire on long wires and attach to the skin, as opposed to just touching the skin.

You're right, the police officer at that demo I went to, said that, & a spectator queried the barbed hooks, as a member here has, the officer said that the barbs are very fine, & just "snag" the skin, rather than lacerate it.

The best piece of advice that I can give this young man is to dump the public defenders and get a real lawyer that will look out for your interests and fight for you in court if it actually gets that far.

The law really is ridiculus. I really hope you win, something needs to be done about all these gready injury lawyers making a quick buck here and there
