I've already mentioned the perhaps over-enthusiastic use of the Taser by police.
There's one guy in Canada who might have a whole new reason to dislike the thing.
A Hamilton man Tasered by police is in hospital after the stun gun ignited a "flammable object" in his pants, burning him.
The incident is under review by Ontario's Special Investigations Unit, which probes all police-related deaths and serious injuries. According to the SIU, police were called to a Queenston Road apartment in Hamilton's east end around 9 p.m. Thursday.
"Three officers went there in response to a disturbance call," said SIU spokesman Frank Phillips yesterday. "During the interaction, an officer discharged his Taser. A flammable object the man had in the waistband of his pants ignited."
Like the title of this post (and the song) says . . . "a hunk of burning love", perhaps?
