Video: WDM Taser Demonstration

I’ve seen them before on all of the network newscasts. Taser demonstrations undertaken by the local reporter. Last Tuesday night, two community publications writers were to be Tasered in a demonstration by the West Des Moines Police Department during a Citizen Police Academy meeting.

I’m not really sure what I had hoped to create heading into the event.  My editor had mentioned what previous videos of the same topics had been like … video of the local reporter getting tasered, a large number of hits on the web site, and hearty laughs around the newsroom.

I am never entirely sure how “newsy” to make multimedia for the community publications, and this was no different. In any case, this video does not feature any Register reporters.
