    What does the taser feel like?

    I know this sounds weird, but I've wanted to know what getting struck by a taser feels like. My cousin is in the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mountain Police) and she was telling me she had to have it done when she first began with them but just couldn't describe the pain. All she said was "50 000 volts of
    electricity baby. I cannot describe the pain!"

    Yeah. I was tased. For me, the short burst [5 seconds] of pain was worse than the OC I was hit with, which lasted for a couple days as it was constantly reactivated. But yeah, for me it felt like my muscles cramping in on themselves tighter and tighter until I just physically could not hold myself up anymore and was guided to the ground by 2 persons holding my arms. But it was weird, for as much as it hurt, the moment it was over the pain was gone, I was not stunned, or blacked out, or dazed. I did feel a slight "high" But i was told that was normal as your body regains its normal operating functions. I personally, would rather get sprayed than tased anyday.

    On one of my ride-alongs, this civilian woman was bugging the police officer to shoot me with the taser so she could see how it worked. I would have been up for it, but this woman was really pissing me off...I almost grabbed the cops taser and shot HER myself.

    Lol, man I would love to read that in the paper. Except possibly about the whole part of a civilian rider being shot after they attempted to disarm a cop :D

    At my academy they had like 10 recruits hold hands, and attached one prong to each end of the chain... when they sent the voltage through, everyone stood and shook, no one could let go, lol. As soon as the shock was over, everyone fell straight to the ground. It was amusing =)

    Getting tased is not that bad. You feel a jolt go through your body and have no control over your muscles but it only lasts for a couple of seconds. I would take getting tased over OC any day.

    It pulses 15 times per second. You feel EVERY one of those pulses. If you ever get the chance to take a shock, don't wear an underwire bra or rings on your fingers. One of our female officers was burned on her fingers and where the underwire was. Not a bad burn, but it left welts.

    You know that tingleing pain you get that very second you hit your funny bone real hard? Imagine that same pain through your whole body, 15 times a second.

    It is only 19 pulses a second for the frist two seconds, then it goes down to 15 pulses/second for the final three seconds.
