Non-lethal weapons infographic

I found this infographic about non-lethal alternatives to firearms interesting. Your mileage may vary. I especillay find it interesting that in some states TASERs and stun guns are banned but firearms are permitted. For instance in my state of North Carolina you can carry a gun with a concealed carry permit but TASERs are only allowed in homes and businesses. Doesn’t make a lot of sense.

Other YouTube Taserer sentenced

Son in YouTube Taser stunt gets 2 years’ prison:
Previously I posted about how the father in the father and son YouTube Taserers pleaded guilty. Now it’s the son’s turn.

22-year-old Paul Crowell pleaded guilty to stealing a police officer’s Taser. He was sentenced to two years behind bars this past Thursday.

If you’ll recall the pair stole a Taser from a police officer when they were being assisted by the officer. They then posted a video on YouTube of them Tasering each other.

YouTube Taserer pleads guilty

Father shown in YouTube Taser video pleads guilty:
A few months back there was a story about a father and son who stole a Taser from a Wisconsin police officer. Like every responsible citizen they realized the error of their ways and returned the Taser to the nice officer…just kidding. They actually recorded themselves Tasering each other and posted the video to YouTube.

The father, 42-year-old Paul J. Dupey, pleaded guilty to the charges against him and could serve as much as three years behind bars.
