iPod: This Season's Must-Have for Muggers

bellings Re: WA State (993 comments)

Normally, muggers threaten you with lethal force, and agree to remove that threat in return for your possessions.

I agree, though, that if your possessions are threatened but you're not being threatened with lethal force (like, for example, if some asshat is threatening to bring a frivolous lawsuit against you) a taser may be appropriate. But, you're going to have a difficult time convincing a jury of that.
