Please Tase Me, Bro

Posted on Mon, Apr 12, 2010 at 1:13 PM

A Colorado sheriff's deputy has been suspended after using his taser on at least 30 students during a job fair. In his defense, they were asking for it. The students "wanted to know what it felt like" to be subdued by the long arm of the law.

According to the New York Daily News:

Officials say some students suffered burns of varying degrees when the Taser was applied to their legs. At least one student was treated at a hospital. Authorities are considering whether to file criminal charges.

Way to set the bar, Colorado. PPB will certainly have to up the crazy now.
