The gadget above is sold freely in Pasar Malam and maybe downtowns too.
"Immediately upon making contact, the stun gun delivers a high-voltage (generally 85,000 volts to 625,000 volts), low-amperage electrical charge".Source: http://EzineArticles.com/655352
Another new gadget used by criminals in the community is an innocent looking torchlight. But on closer inspection it is actually not a torchlight that will help show the way in the dark but will do it the other way round. It makes you loose the light an be a victim of theft, robbers, rapers or worse case scenario murdered.
This is an email I receive and like to share with my readers.
I just thought to let know what my doctor told me recently. I don't think she was lying and neither am I, so please pass this on to your friends. Her clinic is in SS2 and you know how congested that place is.
One morning a few months ago in broad daylight, a girl was getting into her car when a few men approached her with what looked like a torchlight. Quite harmless looking. They pressed the "torchlight" into her back and immediately she went limp and very pale. So she wouldn't be able to fight back, they slashed her thigh with a parang and sped away in her car.
There were many people around and they quickly took her to the nearest clinic which was my doctor's clinic. There were two doctors at that time and they managed to stitch up her wound but the girl remained pulse-less and still pale as paper. No pulse, no BP (blood pressure) Just like dead.
My doctors were confused as to how one wound on the thigh made the girl almost like dead? They managed to revive her and save her life.
After some checking around, the doctors found out what actually happened was that the girl was made unconscious not by a torchlight but actually a high voltage weapon. I forgot how many watts she mentioned. 1000? Anyway, it was high enough to kill a person by electrocution.
It seems this weapon is from China . It's not rampant in Malaysia ...yet; but with this thing, a person can rob, rape, kill, kidnap, and practically do anything to you. My doctor said that if the girl weren't taken to the clinic immediately she would have died because there was no pulse on her.
So please just beware of your surroundings, if anybody is lurking around with a torchlight-thingy and approaches you, just scream or run away. Better to be embarrassed than ZAPPED and fried, right? Take care.

The authority should take stern action to prohibit selling of such gadget to the public. Even though it looks like a harmful object but in actual case can be used for criminal activities. If they can take action on selling of fake guns that looks like real guns why not take action on these innocent looking "flashlight" err, is it a flashlight?
When we walk out from the comfort of our home, we can't expect what will happen to us. So the best thing is to be aware. Share this posting with your friends because sharing is part of love too.
