Missouri cops now using 80,000-volt ‘stun cuffs’ on prisoners

The Sheriff’s Department in Buchanan County, Missouri has begun using 80,000-volt enhanced handcuffs for prisoner transfers and some court appearances while dismissing potential safety concerns, KQTV-TV reported on Monday.

“It affects the muscles of the body and it doesn’t really affect anything else,” Captain Jody Hovey told KQTV. “Everyone says it affects your heart, and it does not. What it does really is it just sends a charge through the body that locks up your muscles.”

Hovey said to KQTV that the “stun cuffs,” as they have been called, are tied around a prisoner’s arm or leg and can be operated via remote control from as far as 100 yards away. His department is currently using only two pairs, valued at $2,200 apiece, citing “bugs and kinks” that need to be corrected before more are ordered.

    LoL

    This just goes to show how crazy these people are and how little they know of what they are talking about. The heart IS a muscle.
