Domestic Militarization

Deadly Weapon
"He had a flashlight that made a very realistic taser sound. Showing off to a young person who looked to be his grandson he set it off in what was otherwise completely normal inside coffeeshop environment with customers present making the comment, 'see how that got everybody's attention?'"

"Who might find this story disturbing? People who have witnessed the use of a taser in a confrontational environment (justified or not). Or persons whose life might be threatened by a sudden adrenaline rush (due to, say, heart disease)."

Make no mistake, the story is absolutely true and documented thoroughly.  While financial sponsors of 'Stand Your Ground' play cat and mouse with revealing media, one wonders just what it means to yell 'fire' in a crowded theatre, version 2012?
