Police fatally taser gasoline-soaked suspect

Filed under:

As we’ve reported before, tasers might not be as safe as their makers like to claim. Juan Flores Lopez, a Texas man who had doused himself in gasoline, became the latest unfortunate taser-related casuality when police used the stun device (which sometimes emit sparks) during his arrest. “We don’t know what ignited the fire,” perplexed officers admitted. The case is currently being investigated by the Texas Rangers.
