Just read about two police officers in the north of UK that zapped (electro-chocking to pacify) a blind man, mistaken him for walking with a samurai sword.

Now - I know that thay drive in the wrong side and eat terrible food in the UK, but...

mistaken a blind-stick for a samurai sword......

whats next - hunting flying pigs...

At least they used a Taser. They just shoot them here.

Yeah they accidentally tasered a guy who works on our local buses, fortunately he was unhurt - you see, he was a bad conductor...

Tasers can kill


well, tasering an unarmed brazillian in Sydney 14 times even after he's cuffed kills

But that's not in keeping with having a laugh
