Arizona man's US Patent application showing his taser-proof clothing. Or if you want to get technical it's the patent for an "energy weapon protection device". It's basically conductive and non-conductive material in layers that prevent an electric charge from ever reaching the body -- because yelling "Don't tase me, bro!" just doesn't work.

Officer: "I tased him, but it had no effect. He must have been hopped up on crystal meth or something, so I had to shoot him between the eyes."

Why would you need taser proof clothes unless you planned on doing something that would get attention from the police?

Have you been paying attention to the amazing abuse publicity these things have been getting at all?
Do you honestly think all those people who were tased are totally innocent of whatever the cops stopped them for? Do you really think the cops stopped them for some made up reason and tased them for the heck of it?

I am not saying that there arent corrupt cops or that all cases of police brutality are made up but the facts are obvious that the vast majority of law enforcement officers are honest hardworking men and women who happen to have a very difficult and at times dangerous job. Its so easy to MMQ when we have only seen one side of an issue or just a little part of the bigger incident. One perfect example is the Rodney King incident, everyone has seen the beating part but very few people are aware of what lead to the beating (King was speeding while on PCP and was fighting the officers) - it is also interesting to note that the passenger with King complied with all of the officers demands and guess what? He WAS NOT harmed and he walked away from the incident a free person... go figure, gee I wonder ....
