Some newly minted Lufkin Police officers were working on their non-lethal weapons training and what happened won't shock you. But it was very shocking for them.

A taser is an electroshock weapon that fires two barbs into the skin, making you lose control of your voluntary muscles. Pulling the trigger breaks open a compressed gas cartridge inside the gun. That’s the popping you hear when they deploy them.

The taser delivers 19 short pulses per second over 5 seconds with a current of 2 milliamps. They really help to de-escalate a confrontation, and training is a must.

Stop Talking And Get To The Shocking Taser Video

It's almost a rite of passage to get hit with a taser at the Lufkin Police Department. It's very important for them to know exactly what it feels like to get hit with one.

That way when they are out on patrol they know the consequences of this non-lethal option. In the rare event that the taser was to ever be turned on them, they might even fare better knowing how it feels.
