Missouri Police To Control Prisoners With 80,000-Volt “Stun Cuffs”01/10/2013 18:34
I’m guessing there are some prankster cops who are going to have a lot of fun using these. Missouri’s St. Joe Channel reports:
The Buchanan County Sheriff’s Department has a new piece of equipment that’s aimed at keeping inmates in special situations from getting into disciplinary problems.
Stun-Cuffs are strapped to the ankle or the wrist. Deputies in Buchanan County can use a remote control to send a shock straight into an offender’s extremities, at a range of 100 yards.
Stun-Cuffs can send 80,000 volts straight into an arm or a leg; and all inmates who require them will be told just how powerful they are before they’re strapped on.
Capt. Hovey says there’s still a few bugs and kinks to work out before the technology can be fully implemented. He hopes to get that going as soon as possible. A taser that’s strapped on? He says that is all the more reason for inmates to mind their manners.
