Panty on the Head Award: November 2007 Archives
TASER electronic stun guns are a form of torture that can kill, a UN committee has declared after several recent deaths in North America. "The use of these weapons causes acute pain, constituting a form of torture,'' the UN's Committee against Torture said.I'd say listening to the insufferable windbags at the UN "causes acute pain, constituting a form of torture," but perhaps this definition is, um, a smidgen more liberal, if that is at all possible. The UN definition seems to be, "It hurts - and someone else is doing it."
United Nations, you win the Panty on the Head award for minimizing the definition of torture. I've a feeling you'll be back soon.
