Taser-proof clothing creates new hazard

CLOTHING designed to protect people from stun guns may in fact put them in more danger. Stun weapons such as the Taser shoot barbed darts into a victim, delivering a series of 50,000-volt electrical pulses. Last week inventor Gregory Schultz of Arizona was granted a patent (US 7284280) on jackets, T-shirts and other garments that incorporate a layer of conductive foil, which dissipates this paralysing charge. Schultz argues that with Tasers now available to the public in the US, police will increasingly come across Taser-equipped criminals and need protective garb. Steve Wright,
