Tasers, while technically non-lethal devices, are not to be messed with. Just ask a police officer that's been tased in the name of training. Besides the crippling pain brought on by the electric shock, tasers can induce a number of heart conditions, up to and including heart attacks, while a 2008 study by Amnesty International determined that 334 deaths had been caused by tasers from 2001 to 2008 in the US alone. Like we said, it's not a toy.

Which makes the plight of Bradley Jones so awful. Over a nine-month period, Jones was snuck up on and tased by his co-workers at Fred Fincher Motors in Houston over two dozen times. To make matters worse, it was videotaped and posted on YouTube, purportedly by the dealership's owner, Sam Harless.
