Interesting Fact - British Police

According to figures recently released by the Office for National Statistics, the use of Tasers by police in England and Wales has more than doubled; from 3,500 a year in 2009 to 7,250 in 2011.

(In around 25% of cases, the taser is used as a pain compliance weapon, where the cartridge is removed and used to inflict pain, a kind of stun gun.

In 2008 changes to the law allowed the weapons to be used by any police officer after just three days' training.

They probably think they're Jedi warriors.)
