If you're looking to incapacitate with electricity, Taser International is your go-to source. And while single-shot (or even triple shot) weapons have their place, what do you do when faced with a whole crowd of no-goodniks? For instance, take that Travis County, Texas constable who zapped a 72 yea

Like most rational human beings, we have a healthy fear of guns. We've never shot a man in Reno (just to watch him die), and we're even unlikely to tase a bro in Atlantic City, just to observe him become temporarily incapacitated. Still, the appeal of a \"non-lethal\" deterrent is understandable (and

Right on schedule, Taser's launching the TASER X3 \"force option,\" which allows \"peace officers\" the ability to shoot up to three probes in quick succession in order to \"incapacitate\" their \"targets.\" Not only that, but the X3 can display a \"warning arc\" when loaded, allowing officers to \"gain volun

Oh sure, technically COPS is still a current show, but seriously, the formula hasn't changed in eons. TASER International's AXON / EVIDENCE.com tandem is gearing up to change all that -- so long as officers agree to strap the hardware on their person, that is. In short, AXON is an on-officer record

The CBC and Radio Canada have run a bunch of Taser tests recently, and the results aren't likely to reassure anyone. US-based testing lab National Technical Systems pulled 41 X26 units out of 7 random police stations across the nation, and fired each at least six times. What happened? Well, four of

Regardless of what the UN / Taser thinks, the fuzz around Clinton, Connecticut aren't too fond of taser-like weapons being in the hands of teenagers. Case in point: a 14-year old with a certain knack for wandering around the intarwebz and filling his brain with all sorts of hacktastic methodologies

So Point Blank Solutions, Inc. and G2 Consulting apparently went right ahead despite the existing patent app and came up with an anti-Taser material called Thor Shield, which weighs two ounces per square foot and can be integrated into anything from a flak jacket to gloves (pictured) to a standard

So yeah, Taser International is indeed introducing a leopard print C2 \"personal protection device\" here at CES, but honestly, that's not what caught our eye. Rather, the MPH (Music Player Holster) -- which is a 1GB DAP / C2 holster combination -- has absolutely and completely captured our imaginatio

We're not exactly certain how a clip of Andrew Meyer politely asking the University of Florida cops to refrain from Tasing him ended up on Verzion's ringback tone web shop, but you know a million phone lines just got that much more annoying.[Thanks, Yamin]

According to a recent report, the French head of stun-gun maker Taser has plans to create a \"mini-flying saucer like drone which could also fire Taser stun rounds on criminal suspects or rioting crowds.\" Antoine di Zazzo, fervent proselytizer of the electroshock weapon, is cutting through the is /

Looks like the Taser parties are back on -- Taser issued a terse rebuttal to the UN today, finding fault with its conclusion that being hit with a taser is equivalent to torture. Saying that the committee is \"out of touch with the reality that confronts law enforcement officers every day worldwide,\"
