Back in Februrary, a dazed and confused Dan Henry — also known by his handle ‘SuperDaE’ — answered his door to a squad of Western Australian Police officers and a representative from the FBI. They were there to raid Henry’s home in search of the Xbox Durango development console he had attempted to sell on eBay as a prank. After spending months in legal limbo, Henry now expects to be charged on Monday, but not for offences relating to the Durango. Instead, he might only be charged with owning a stun gun.
You know when you were a kid and your dad told you that owning a dog would teach you responsibility? Walk him, feed him, clean up after him, keep him on a leash. One California dog walker found out last Sunday that the penalty for non-compliance is a good stun gunning.
Poor Officer Lanham of the Lancaster PD: A day after he got his shiny new Taser he had to go through some additional training. Turns out that firefighting skills are a must after tasering a guy who’d been huffing keyboard cleaner.
There’s a new stun gun called the X12. And it’s pretty much a freeze ray without the ice.

You know, there are certain things you just shouldn’t cheap out on—headphones, condoms, HDTVs, and I’m guessing stun guns. But since it’s probably more of a risk for the guy you’re zapping, why not? The Thunder Stun delivers 200,000-750,000 volts for just 13 US bucks. I’m sure it’ll be fine, really. What could possibly go horribly, horribly wrong? [Surplus Computers via Gear Diary]
