Serious fun with a taser gun

I was reading today about Michael Todd, the Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police, who agreed to be tasered by his officers to demonstrate just how safe the non-lethal weapon is (see http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/s/1007/1007128_top_cop_tastes_a_taser.html). I think he survived, but I can't help feeling this kind of stunt is on a par with former Tory Ministers feeding their kids beefburgers in the height of the mad cow scare.

Batons are often highly effective too and don't usually result in death, but you don't see so many people volunteering to try them out, do you?
