Musta been a mighty big weapon

Cincinnati cops tase, arrest marathon runner whose shorts fell off. They tased him as he ran away from them (which is what you usually do when running a marathon, run away from the people behind you, right?). In order to protect the general public from Brett Henderson's huge weapon, they *had* to tase him, otherwise he could have irreparably harmed impressionable young children and bachelors everywhere who measured their own weapon and came up short. Err, yeah :).

  1. It was the blisters on the inside of his knee caps from the swingin weapon that drew their attention.

  2. Just wait until Heimat Seicherheit in airports gets Tasers, and/or if they start being issued to airliner crews. If George Orwell could have imagined Tasers, just think what wrinkles he could have added to 1984 with that technology!

  3. Dave, must be why the cops felt he was such a threat that they had to tase him.
