In keeping with the RCMP’s latest crime-fighting taser techniques against stapler-bearing individuals, inquiry Judge Thomas Braidwood was shocked multiple times by Mounties when they felt threatened by the gavel the judge raised during testimony given by fellow officers.
“It was certainly a defensive measure,” stated the Brave Mountie™ in charge. “It was our decision based on years of training. We deal with these types of people all the time, and we know best how to safely subdue them.”
There is no word on whether the judge was under arrest at the time.
