    Use of Shock Belts on people??? Opinions Please

    If this subject belongs somewhere else, please move.

    Yesterday, while keeping up on Elizabeth Johnson's court motions I noticed one referenceing a shock belt. This blew me away! I'm no fan of EJ but had no idea this was going on in the USA.

    Wow, what do WSers think?

    Doing a cursory scan through google, found this 11 yr old article to give a little more info.


    50,000-volt penalty for talking is ruled illegal / L.A. judge's use of stun belt in court rejected

    But this was 11 yrs ago and in California.

    Look forward to your opinions, this just bothers me...

    They shock people in court? In the open? Talk about justice -_- No it is NOT okay and I am totally AGAINST. Something to remember:
    Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster.
