12/15   I'm planning on traveling to Europe and I was wondering if there's
        any reason I shouldn't be able to use a US power tap/strip (no surge
        suppression) with just a plug adaptor (i.e., no voltage conversion).
        This would be for use with electronics that accept 100V-240V. While
        the power strip is intended for use at 120V, it's just wires, right?
        (Also, this power strip has no power LED or similar.) If anything,

Many Corporate Security firms have moved from handgun wielding Security Officers to Taser toting kind hearted professionals.

Avoiding the unnecessary emotional cost of killing is best for all. With the advancements of the non-lethal self defense industry, one should strongly consider a Stun Gun, Pepper Spray or Tasers over a Hand Gun or Knife. Taser: When choosing your form of self defense you must consider the likely scenario, and your mental fortitude to manage and deal with the situation effectively. Consider whether you are more comfortable using a close range device, such as a stun gun, or if you prefer the safe distance as is provided with Pepper Spray. Each device provides specific benefits, whether distance, ease of use, or shear stopping power, decide what features are most important to you and consider there effectiveness in possible scenarios. The decision to be proactive about workplace and personal safety is an important one, and hopefully you will never need to use such devices. Pepper spray, oleoresin capsicum (OC), is a natural substance derived from the oily resins found in cayenne and other varieties of pepper. Contact with OC in a sprayed mist induces an immediate and intense burning sensation of the skin but especially impacts the eyes causing them to slam shut, burn, tear, swell. Also, the mucous membranes of the nose, throat, and sinuses burn, swell and make breathing difficult. In fact, even though tear gas is fairly nasty, it does not have the same inflammation and swelling effects of OC. People under the influence of drugs or who are otherwise oblivious to pain may be able to keep their eyes open when sprayed with tear gas but not so with OC. When sprayed in the eyes, the eyes will involuntarily slam shut whether they feel pain or not. This temporary blindness causes fear and disorientation allowing you to escape and get help. Medical and police studies, as well as AI themselves, have shown that TASER technology is among the safest choices available to halt violent situations that pose a safety risk to an officer, suspect or innocent citizens. Local law enforcement agencies determine individual use of force policy. The ACLU and AI position that a TASER should only be used by a police officer as a direct response to deadly force is a position that will lead to greater injuries and deaths to both police and suspects. Police officers on scene are best able, highly trained and equipped to determine the proper use of force required based on the totality of circumstances in response to any given situation. Numerous independent medical and law enforcement studies have re-affirmed the life saving and injury reduction value of TASER technology. TASER systems dramatically reduce injuries to both officers and suspects, and the use of TASER technology is proven to reduce the number of police shootings and use of lethal force. To date, TASER International estimates over 6,000 lives have been saved by the use of TASER technology. stun gun is a hand held, electrical self defense device that uses high voltage to stop an attacker. However, because the amperage is very low, no serious or permanent injury is inflicted. They are used by police departments, security agencies, and individuals desiring protection against attack. They have been proven to be an excellent defensive device as they have incredible stopping power and yet remain non-lethal. Typically they operate on one or two 9-volt batteries and range from 85,000 volts to 625,000 volts.

Salt Lake Tribune | June 21, 2005 By Heather May Ty McCartney thwacked his leg repeatedly with a foam baton as he braced himself to be jolted by up to 50,000 volts. Then - with a Taser's red laser beam pointed at his chest - he grimaced, drew in a breath and raised the baton, his "weapon." One didn't stick, but the other embedded itself in his chest. The five-second zap Monday was part of a research project as McCartney, who works for Mayor Rocky Anderson, helps the Police Department determine its Taser policy. A former cop, McCartney figured he should do his homework. But the 33-year-old's guttural moans masked the electric "zzzz" of the Taser. His arms involuntarily contracted to his sides and he fell, bottom first, onto gymnastic mats laid on the floor in a classroom at the city's Pioneer Precinct. He tried to raise his baton to continue "attacking" Wihongi, but the threat was short-lived. As soon as the shock subsided - a matter of seconds - McCartney was coherent. "I felt that right through my spine," he said while waiting for an officer to pull out the barb, which left a pinprick of blood. McCartney said he felt winded, like he had run a sprint. "During that five seconds it wasn't pain, just disabling." Then came round two of his masochistic morning: the pepper spray. McCartney wanted to compare the two types of force that police officers use and see which one would stop his "attacks" the quickest. Dressed in military fatigues and combat boots, officer Tyrone Farillas took over spray duties. Outside the precinct, McCartney fiddled with his foam baton again and then Farillas sprayed McCartney's eyes for about two seconds. McCartney didn't yell or groan - he had been sprayed three times before when he was an officer. Instead, he charged another officer who was holding a protective mat. McCartney pounded on the mat for almost 20 seconds before giving up and asking for water to rinse his eyes. Several minutes later, his eyes still red, puffy and watering, McCartney announced his preference. will still be a problem," he said, while sitting in front of a fan to aid his eyes. McCartney said the Taser seems safer than pepper spray for the culprit and the cop. France Barral, representing Amnesty International on the Taser committee, said McCartney's experiment will be helpful, but probably isn't comparable to an assailant's experience on the street. Tasers have contributed to deaths - 93 in the United States and Canada by Barral's count - typically when the person was on drugs or had pre-existing health problems. McCartney is young and healthy, though his heart rate was high before he was shocked because he was nervous. I'm not sure pepper spray has the same record," said Barral, who would like to see a moratorium on Tasers until the short- and long-term effects have been independently studied. If Tasers are used, she said they should be deployed as an alternative to deadly force.
