07/19/2005 Archived Entry: "Claire to get Tasered?"

SHOCKING CLAIRE? Working on some articles about police and Tasers, I got a notion that good research meant getting Tasered myself. Through a friend in local government, I put out a feeler to the cops.

I figured they'd come back with a no. Or a lot of bureaucratese. I was surprised when my friend responded within hours with an oddly cheery "Sure. Officer So-and-So is looking forward to Tasering you." Uh ...

That just came this morning and I must admit that after my initial ... er, shock ... I find I'm much more fearful about going to the police station and possibly being probed for personal info than I am about being jolted with a disabling blast of power.

It still remains to be seen whether this bit of research will really come to pass. I'll keep you posted.

(And D. and R., After this I may deserve a raise. Some combat pay, perhaps? LOL.)
