After posting yesterday about Taser and their newly released C2 product, I can't help but share this article coming out today. A police chase through Stamford, Conn. ended in a bus station with a man pointing a .38, leaving police with the option of shoot or be shot. The officers describe it as a "classic suicide by cop" circumstance in which a suicidal person puts themselves in a situation where police are forced to use deadly force." The situation was instead remedied by one bad-ass electrically charged Taser. Now, instead of giving a man his wish to die the city of Stamford will put him up in the nearest prison and flip the bill for his food, shelter, clothing, and representation in a court hearing. Good for them.
I kid of course.
