Taser firing flying saucer drone

At the very end of an article discussing the ongoing controversy of using stun guns (which often quotes Antoine di Zazzo, founder of the French company Taser) we find this gem:

Di Zazzo’s French company is developing a mini-flying saucer like drone which could also fire Taser stun rounds on criminal suspects or rioting crowds. He expects it to be launched next year and to be sold internationally by Taser.

Is it just me, or does this sound like an incredibly bad idea?

One thought on “Taser firing flying saucer drone”

  1. I am reminded of the “Copseyes” mentioned in the short story “Cloak of Anarchy” by Larry Niven.

    Wouldn’t a flying taser thingy be very vulnerable to, say, 12 gauge fire? It’s not a policeman, it’s a remote device. A ski mask and a shotgun would be all you need to stop one.
