Tasers On Stun

Tasers on StunAs we all know, Nanny is always on the look out for new gadgets to help improve her methods of policing and population control.

One rather useful gadget that she has added to her arsenal, in recent years, is the taser. This is a hand gun carried by some police officers that delivers a hefty electrical shock, enough to render the recipient paralysed for a few minutes.

Now, as with all of these gadgets, there have been concerns about how they are being used. As such Nanny has decided that it may be useful to fit cameras to tasers, so that their use can be justified.

Not a bad idea, in my view. However, there is something far more useful that Nanny should be doing with her camera/taser technology.

As you are doubtless aware, Britain has the highest number of CCTV cameras in the civilised world; we are the most watched, and photographed, people on the planet.

Proud of that?

Yet, ask yourselves this, has this excessive level of monitoring reduced the crime statistics?

Do you feel safer, as a result of being monitored?


The reason?

The cameras are there to aid the police improve their post crime detection rates, they are not there to prevent crime.

Take the recent savage murder, by vicious scumbags, of Rhys Pryce just less than 100 yards away from his home in north west London.

Hew was left dying on the pavement after being stabbed in the head, torso and hands by two mindless vermin.

It seems that these two pieces of human shit had already perpetrated a crime, less than 30 minutes earlier. They had been filmed on CCTV mugging an Asian man, who was standing alone at an underground station.

Now had someone intervened then, and helped the mugging victim, the second crime would not have been committed.

Yet, despite the mugging victim's obvious distress and the fact that the CCTV witnessed the entire mugging from start to finish, not a single person from Nanny's crew of "watchers" came to assist.

You see, these cameras really aren't designed to prevent crime at all.

Instead of fixing cameras to tasers, Nanny should be fixing tasers to cameras. That way, the vermin who were mugging their victim that night would have received a healthy high voltage dose that would have knocked them out long enough for their stunned corpses to be scrapped off the floor.

Had that have happened, Rhys Price would be alive now.

However, Nanny is only ever interested in looking after her own back not protecting the rest of us.

    Hmm, seems like a plan. Only problem is that you can bet the first (and probably only) cameras to have it fitted would be the revenue raising ones.

    Good point anonymous.

    You're far more likely to see a slot for a credit card on a camera, how about a camera with the option to erase footage at say £50 pounds a minute?

    I think the erase feature will be of most value to the forces of 'law' and 'order' when they accidentally kill the first peace campaigner with a dodgy heart they use these things on....

    for the forces of law and order there's the automatic quality degredation button. This preserves the recording but renders the contents unrecognisable, a bit like a microwave ready meal.
