How to Defeat a Taser Atack- SPIN!

Posted November 27th, 2012 by SamInTx

Update: November 27, 2012. Crazy human who works in law enforcement training reports actually trying this with five of his students. Apparently at his school the students are required to take a low-dose taze as component of the training. Out of five students instructed to perform a spin, it worked with four of resulting electrical discharge reached the student. The fifth was 'slow' in turning, and was initially jolted, but it lasted only a micro-second as the student's body was still rotating as she went limp, and that crossed the wiring, shorting out the electricity. She simply stood up, very unusual as most students will require a number of seconds before 'rubber legs' sensation retreats.

Initially, I was intrigued by this article because it seemed to provide some handy information. But, then I started thinking about the situations in which an officer would use a taser. If an officer is about to tase someone, then the officer has most likely decided to bypass the use of their baton or pepper spray. Once the shock from the taser has been avoided, by spinning around (which paints a ridiculous mental image), you have a pissed off cop whose only remaining weapon is his/her firearm. I guess my point is, is that you run the risk of having a gun drawn on you if you attempt this technique. I'm not trying to defend the police or the use of tasers, but bullets generally cause a lot more damage. I'm just trying to be realistic.

good point^^^ I asked a former cop buddy about this and he said it would not work. He claimed that the wires are dipped in a substance that insulates them. Also he said that if you just try to rip them out you may take a chunk of flesh out with them. The cops carry a tool that disarms the barbs at the end of the wires. He also agreed that if the taser fails the cop may feel the "need" to use lethal force.
