Don't Tase Me, Bro!

Campus Police Juiced Up For Taser Training:

Oklahoma City University police officers will be "riding the lightning" at 10 a.m. today as they undergo Taser certification training. The training session will consist of the legal, safety and specific use of Tasers and every officer in training must be shocked at least once. ... Taser exposures are scheduled to take place at about 10 a.m. The session is open to reporters and photographers.

Odd, to say the least. I'm not aware of many police departments, campus or otherwise, that require their officers to undergo such "sensitivity" training (I'm pretty sure UGA does not), but just in case there are any officers or potential officers reading, I thought I'd post the video for you.

In other weird campus safety news, check this out:

Bill Would Allow Arizona Faculty to Carry Firearms.
Last year State Sen. Jack Harper of Arizona persuaded his legislative colleagues to pass a bill allowing guns to be stored in the locked trunks of cars on public-college campuses. This year the Republican senator from Surprise, Ariz., has introduced legislation to allow faculty members at the state's colleges to carry guns on campuses if they have a concealed-carry permit, reports The Arizona Republic.
Awesome. Now, what was it about that grade you didn't like?
