Ten news advises us that it's equivalent to 1 million volts. Apparently
they feel it's physically meaningful to add together the voltages in
successive jolts.

<sigh>

I wonder what is the sum of all the TV complaints line telephone numbers.

Dear Sylvia.

It is my duty to inform you that you will be lambasted by all and sundry for
this post.

It seems you're saying there is no cumulative effect of being repeatedly
tased. Perhaps if he recieved only 990000 volts |-|erc would be alive today.

Re: Ten news adding up voltages

An actual jolt of 1 million volts would dissipate about 400 times as
much energy as a 50,000 volt jolt, whereas 20 succesive 50,000 volt
jolts can only dissipate 20 times as much energy as a single jolt.

Except that the probes would have to be much further apart (30 cm or so)
to avoid arcing through the air, so the effect would be quite different.

So saying 1 million volts is not only physically wrong, it doesn't even
approximate to a representation of the effect.

It's anyone's duty to inform you she has more of a clue than you do.

She didn't say that. And only a moron would interpret it as such.

Re: Ten news adding up voltages

If he received 990,000 * 1Volt "jolts" anyway. :-)

Re: Ten news adding up voltages

Nah - have you considered how long that would take? Both he, and the
officer, would have died from sleep deprivation.

Naah, QLD pigs have had a mob mentality since Joh came to power.

Re: Ten news adding up voltages

You suggesting they'd operate in shifts?

Or just surround the guy, and all have at him with their Tasers?

In johs day coppers were oft negotiable , these days they are young and
stupid lacking economic accumien

Re: Ten news adding up voltages

A 1V square wave could deliver that many jolts reasonably quickly if the
frequency were high enough.

Re: Ten news adding up voltages

I was considering a "jolt" to be something expressly activated by the
officer.

Re: Ten news adding up voltages

David is thinking of "volts", but accidentally said "jolts".

"Queensland Police said data downloaded from the Taser used on a 39-year-old
Antonio Galeano in Brandon, near Townsville, showed it operated on 28
separate cycles at the time of the incident on June 12. At first it was
believed the man was tasered three times, now this figure that's come out is
baffling,"

What's so baffling about police lying to cover their own arses, or just to
make their life easier?
They do it every day!

Is Mr Levers really that ignorant, or just playing along.

MrT.

Re: Ten news adding up voltages

It's baffling that they would think they could get away with it, given
that they should know that the device keeps a record, which would
certainly be looked at after a fatality.

The conclusion must be that the police officers concerned are bafflingly
stupid, or that the data is bafflingly wrong.

Re: Ten news adding up voltages

So do you expect the officers involved to be "charged"? :-))

OR

"Discharged" over the incident. :-))

Well I thought it was funny anyway.

Cheers TT  :-))

Shocking.

Re: Ten news adding up voltages

The inherent nature of humour is usually to make wit about
others misfortune.  It is unfortunate that this guy died but
I did not directly make any joke about him, just the
officers involved as they are still alive and can still

Normally one waits for some investigation to see who or what
is at fault first.

We are talking about Policemen here right?  With a whole
million volts of taser stuck up their arses they still would
not qualify as being a "bright spark" ;-)  See, more humour
:-))

The number of discharges does not necessarily that the person received
all of them
