They got off lightly...

They haven't got off anything at all yet.

For the benefit of any policemen who happen to be passing, the RNIB has quite a useful guide to canes. Possibly these now require updating to make it clear that it is not possible to shoot someone using one.

It is remarkable that these police officers manage to make it out of the station without tasering each other or themselves. Although during WW2 Churchill's bodyguard managed to shoot himself in both legs, so anything is possible.

To TASER one blind man may be regarded as a misfortune. To TASER a second blind man looks like carelessness.

Tiny Tim the 'singer' (Tiptoe Through The Tulips) used to wear three ties because they were gifts and he didn't want to upset any of the givers by not wearing any of them.
