So, you’ve got a big day of activism planned, and you’re pretty sure it could mean an up-close and intimate encounter with the business end of a taser. So, how do you prevent yourself from getting a brutal case of taser burn and doing the electric two-step?
Well, a tiny bit of body armor might help. And while you’re at it, how about a nice layer of tin foil underneath the kevlar? Or even better, put on a shark suit or pair of piezoelectric pants (though the latte would only work if the officer hit you below the belt.)
