To prove weapon’s safety, Taser drugs & tortures animals

(RAW STORY)   According to electric-shock weapons maker Taser International, if a bunch of sheep are fed methamphetamine and subjected to a series of shocks and none of them suffer cardiac arrest, that weapon must be alright to use on real meth addicts.

That was the aim of a recent study paid for by Taser, which did just that: drugged and tortured animals with 50,000 volts as a means of proving a weapon’s safety.

The study’s abstract reads: “Because of the prevalence of methamphetamine abuse worldwide, it is not uncommon for subjects in law enforcement encounters to be methamphetamine-intoxicated. Methamphetamine has been present in arrest-related death cases in which an electronic control device (ECD) was used. The primary purpose of this study was to determine the cardiac effects of an ECD in a methamphetamine intoxication model.”

To begin their analysis, 16 sheep were anesthetized and fed varying amounts of meth up to 1.5 mg. The animals were then administered shocks of various lengths by a Taser X-26 while researchers monitored their heart function. The weapons-maker has a video of the weapon’s specifications available online.

“Some of the smaller sheep weighing less than 70.5 pounds suffered exacerbated heart symptoms related to meth use,” summarized blog io9. “But neither the smaller nor larger sheep showed signs of the ventricular fibrillation condition, a highly abnormal heart rhythm that can become fatal.”

Tasers have been accused of causing the deaths by cardiac arrest of many people, from meth-intoxicated suspects to even the mentally ill, though the company and law enforcement maintain the device’s safety and effectiveness.

A request for comment left with Taser International was not answered as of this writing.

Taser International recently launched several new varieties of electric-shock weapons, including a shotgun slug with electrified barbs, the triple-headed “Tri-Fire X3” and, coming soon, a grenade-launcher round that can incapacitate a target from 200 feet.

The study was published by Academic Emergency Medicine. One of the study’s authors, Dr. Jeff Ho, is medical director for Taser International.

  • These tazer weapons are developed by evil men who want a monopoly on their use to make more and more money and to be used by the coming new world order antichrist beast system!! For the beast police state are always looking for better ways to inflict punishment on good people as well as the bad people. But they truly hate anything or anybody that is good and righteous and loves God. For the devil in them will want to kill and hurt the righteous because they are a bunch of cold blooded and anti-social paranoid psychopaths that love torturing good people who are moral and who love God.

    But don’t worry!! For even though these Satanic degenerants will kill and murder millions and millions soon when their antichrist beast empire is in full bloom; they will all be in the great lake of fire and brimstone for martyring Gods children who wouldn’t take their future mark of the beast chip in their forehead or hand. For this mark (chip) was written about 2000 years ago in the Book of Revelation’s the 13th and 14th chapters.

    And this chip (mark) will turn you into their heartless and autonotomic zombie slave where you will only want to worship the great leader, the antichrist!! And you will only want to serve and obey him; as that chip will EVENTUALLY turn you into his slave and loyal subject. And you will lose the love for your children and your wife and even for your mother and father. And you will be his autonotomic tranced like monotoned robot.

    And if you take their zombie making beast chip (it is called a ‘mark’ in the Bible because the chip in your forehead or hand will cause a mark) according to Revelation 14:9-11, you will forever be rejected and cursed by God and you will be burning forever and ever in that great lake of fire and brimstone before God and His Lamb (Jesus) and before their Holy Angels!!

  • Whoa, moses737, take a chill pill and mellow out, dude.
    Tasers SAVE lives. They are designed to be NON-LETHAL, and the in-depth testing is designed to prove that.
    Go take a quick dip in the lake (if you haven’t set it on fire, of course) and chill out. Don’t hit your head on the brimstone. Be careful out there, pal. (You are WAYYYYY out there, too.)
