They don't sell Tasers at WalMart iirc

sounds like too much of a hassle when all you really need is a mask,
staking the place out, making sure no one is around, figuring out where they actually store their DVR equipment, not to mention all the tools you will leave behind in case someone stumbles onto you while you are carrying out your plan
and how to you plan on getting to the DVR equipment without being caught on camera, knocking the system out will still have the recordings fro before
a mask is the real weakness of any camera system... fiber optic or not
and i dont even see what fiber optic has to do with anything, the video still has to be recorded to somewhereedit on 13-4-2012 by Kr0nZ because: (no reason given)

It's a nice thought but ultimately you'd be better off with something like a lashed up set of multiple LIpo batteries and a capacitor bank designed to dump a whole lot of power in a short time. Even then I have my doubts that it'd work, but definitely not with a tazer.
After doing a bit of digging I've found that a tazer puts out on the order of .00036 amps or 3 milliamps while this handy dandy hidden camera DVR I found has a power supply rated at 5 volts dc at either 2 or .2 amps. As you can plainly see the amperage addition that a tazer would theoretically add to the circuit in hypothetically Ideal circumstances is still less than a single percent of the base amperage in the circuit. tazer amperage facts spygear DVR power pack picture clearly showing .2 or 2 amp power supply
In order to overload a circuit and actually damage a dvr player you'd need to double or even triple the amount of amperage in order to guarantee burning out the circuit in a timely manner. So in theory you could maybe burn up a dvr player but I'm not even sure a coax cable would take enough current to accomplish any of this.edit on 13-4-2012 by roguetechie because: more information
