Putting those Electrons Where They Will do the Most Good....

Mike, at www.Coldfury.com , reports on a Yahoo news story.

Police Hit Man in Genitals With Taser
Tue Nov 22, 5:54 PM ET
Police accidentally hit a naked man in the genitals with a Taser after he was caught breaking windows and asking women to touch him, authorities said.


Jeremy J. Miljour, 26, tried to run away when sheriff's deputies approached so one of them shot their Taser, said Cpl. Matt Chitwood. But one of the gun's prongs accidentally hit Miljour's genitals and got stuck, Chitwood said.

"The Taser is relatively accurate, but when someone is moving like that, it doesn't matter if you have a Taser, or a pistol. (Officers) can't aim," Chitwood said.

Miljour was treated at a hospital before being taken to the Lee County jail. He was charged with indecent exposure, resisting an officer and criminal damage
.

Yes, the Taser is relatively accurate . That's why I wonder, given the nature of the crime, how much of an accident it was that the perp caught one in the Nards?
Hey, I'm not complaining here. Seems like a case of well deserved justice. I've seen a guy Tasered before, looks like it hurts.

I wondered how Officer Chitwood kept a straight face about the whole incedent while talking to the reporters? I never would have been able to do it.

Update: On the way to work last night I saw something that may explain part of this on top of a very old large barn I pass almost every day.

A LIGHTNING ROD!

Ya know they put those things up there for a reason. I don't know, but just maybe..........
