Police tech has grown over the centuries by the way they can use it. And the high tech gadgets that they have. This revolutionary thing I am going to teach you about is the taser the gun that can freeze you in your tracks with no blood just a few electrical wires that might hurt.
What it does
The taser is an energy weapon that uses EMD (electro-muscular disruption technology. EMD weapons are advanced electro weapons that operate with a higher voltage and a lower wattage. Usually the higher voltage taser or stun gun guns have a greater effect than the lower voltage stun guns. The smaller size of the stun guns the bigger element of surprise. Stun gun voltage can be between 80,000 volts and 775,000. And there voltage is between 7 to 14 watts.
Naturally, the higher voltage stun guns will have a greater effect than lesser voltage units but their smaller size aids in maintaining the element of surprise. Stun batons are best used for home defense where concealment is less a concern and the intimidating size can intensify the "fear factor". While highly effective, there are a small percentage of people with a very high pain-tolerance who can maintain some limited aggressive capabilities.
The 50,000 volt Taser, with it's more powerful 18 to 26 watt pulse disrupts the central nervous system and directly controls the skeletal muscles causing an uncontrollable contraction of the muscle tissue. The EMD effect overrides voluntary muscle control, even among pain-tolerant, aggressive combatants. The subject will be quickly immobilized and on the ground.
How it works
The Taser is aimed at the subject and upon firing, two probes attached to 15' of trailing wires, are propelled by compressed nitrogen gas at 135 fps (feet per second) The electrical impulse passes to the subjects body where the probes have attached to the body or clothing. An automatic initial seven second charge disables the the attacker and continual pulses separated by 1.8 second intervals keep the subject from regaining equilibrium or removing the wires. The initial sequence lasts for about 30 seconds. While the subject is dazed and temporarily disabled the (civilian) can escape the threat.
The taser does not depend on body penetration or impact to work. The powerful pulsating electrical current will "jump" up to two inches as long as both probes are attached to skin or clothing. This debilitating jolt is effective yet causes no damage to nerves, muscles or other body tissue. Extensive testing has proven the effectiveness and safety of the taser. A January 1987 Annals of Emergency Medicine study reported no long-term injuries compared with 50% long-term injuries for surviving gun shot victims.
And know you now why we use tasers and they are nice for you too.
